Report to reveal who was behind QLD Health payroll bungle

QUEENSLANDERS will learn on Tuesday how the state's health payroll system left thousands overpaid, underpaid or not paid at all and who shares responsibility for the $1.2 billion bungle.

Following a six-month long Commission of Inquiry into the disastrous payroll scandal, Health Minister Lawrence Springborg is expected to table the inquiry report in Parliament on Tuesday.

Mr Springborg kept quiet on what exactly the report entailed but said people would find a "blow-by-blow" description of what went wrong.

"I think what people will find very instructive is a blow-by-blow description of how the previous Labor Government really failed in basic corporate governance and this payroll system blew up into a billion debacle, which is going to cause pain and misery for many years to come," he said on Monday.

The inquiry looked into the former State Government's contract with IBM and the system glitches that caused financial stress for thousands of Queensland Health employees in 2010.

Former Premier Anna Bligh and former Public Works Minister Robert Schwarten were among those who gave evidence.

Mr Springborg said "it was one of the biggest, if not the biggest, acts of corporate governance incompetence from any government in the history of the country".
