August salaries for some Gov’t workers suspended – Starr Fm

The Controller and Accountant-General’s Department has suspended the August 2017 salaries of some workers on government’s mechanised payroll.

Those affected include validators who failed to validate their payrolls through the Electronic Salary Payment Voucher (ESPV) system in August 2017 as well as employees whose salaries were not validated.

Others include employees who were not verified during ESVP validation process in August 2017 as well as those with zero or irregular bank account details and others with wrong or without SSNIT numbers, no bank details and same account numbers for different employees.

Employees without the Biometric Registration System at the Ministry of Finance also had the salaries suspended.

The suspension is in line with Regulations 297 of the Financial Administration Regulation, 2004 (LI 1802).

An announcement in the Daily Graphic on Thursday stated that the objective to suspend the salaries is to clean the payroll data and improve the efficiency of government’s payroll management.

The announcement urged affected employees to take the following steps to have their salaries reactivated:

• Those whose salaries were suspended due to non-validation of salaries would be paid at the end of September 2017 on the condition that their heads of department validate them on the ESPV platform for September 2017.

• Employees declared unknown but not missing at their various place of work are required to submit reactivation letters signed by the heads of departments to the controller and Accountant General’s Department Payroll Processing Division.

• Employees with zero or irregular bank account details and others with wrong or without SSNIT numbers and employees sharing the same account numbers should submit the required information to the Payroll Processing Directorate of the Controller and Accountant General’s Department for processing.

• Employees yet to go through the biometric registration exercise should contact the Biometric Registration Centre at the Ministry of Finance with the necessary documents for registration.
