State moves to tackle over-bloated payroll problems
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.
