I'm a software developer who (because of historical reasons that probably aren't relevant) is forced spend at least 30 minutes every day reviewing files with financial data in them. I'm not an actuary so I'm not qualified to review these files. This work is extremely tedious and error prone and I hate doing it. I've told my manager and my manager's manager as much and they said it's not a priority right now to automate it. This is frustrating because I've already written a program to do the review automatically but I can't use the code because it hasn't been reviewed yet. My coworkers and I tracked our time spent doing this work for a month and showed it to our manager's manager and he says he wants the data analyzed more thoroughly (broken out by task, etc). Any advice on how to convince management to either let me use the code I wrote or prioritize this would be appreciated!
EDIT (responding to comments/questions)
There has been a mandate from an executive at my company that too many small mistakes have been made lately so they're cracking down on manual processes, hence the review. After reviewing these files I have to send out emails to the consumers saying that the data is good. Since I'm not an actuary, I just say the data is good if it follows the business rules the actuaries have given us. Management does not want any analysis done on the data unless it fails one/more of the business rules. My main question is how to convince management to prioritize having someone else do this review or prioritize saying the code I wrote is good to go so I don't have to do it manually.
