State moves to tackle over-bloated pay­roll prob­lems

Weekly Trust - - News - Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

The Kogi State Govern­ment in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the World Bank is to im­ple­ment a State In­te­grated Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (SIFMIS) from next month to help tackle all pay­roll­re­lated prob­lems and in­stil fi­nan­cial dis­ci­pline in public sec­tor gov­er­nance.

Kogi State SIFMIS Man­ager, Mr Aminu Ibrahim, who dis­closed this in Lokoja at a sem­i­nar for jour­nal­ists, said the project is be­ing im­ple­mented un­der the World Bank’s Public Sec­tor Gov­er­nance Re­form and De­vel­op­ment Project (PSGRDP).

The sys­tem, ac­cord­ing to him, is ex­pected to in­te­grate all other ex­ist­ing plat­forms like the Remita, cy­berspace and the clock­ing sys­tem in the state Min­istries, Depart­ments and Agen­cies (MDAs) to func­tion as one.

Ibrahim how­ever pointed out that for the project to be a suc­cess, there was ur­gent need for the state govern­ment to clearly spell out the list of civil ser­vants in the state ser­vice af­ter the ver­i­fi­ca­tion ex­er­cise as that will be fed into the hu­man re­source/pay­roll of the SIFMIS so­lu­tion.
