Our focus in this article is on change and the nature of changes in management control systems within a state-owned development financial institution in Fiji (The Fiji Development Bank). A key dialectical theme from Giddens' structuration theory - the duality of structure is drawn upon to sensitize researchers all the nature of changes and reasons for changes in accounting and control structures as a result of a 'crisis' situation in the Bank's wider social order. The old and new 'language', 'facility' and 'norms' are analyzed to understand the reconstitution of structures of signification, domination and legitimation within the FDB. Our study further examines the unintended consequences of the new technology and other informal strategies used to achieve management control. It ends with a summary, conclusion. and implications for further research ill the area of management control change.
