506 MDAs with 344,675 workers now captured in IPPIS platform, says AGF
The Federal Government has said that no fewer than 344,675 workers captured in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) received N49.07 billion gross payments as at September 2018.
It said that the sensitisation of tertiary institutions (federal universities, polytechnics and colleges of education) had been carried out awaiting verification and capturing.
The Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF), Alhaji Ahmed Idris, made the revelation yesterday at the Peer Review Mechanism of Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) 2019 in Abuja yesterday.
Idris said that worldwide, peer review mechanism had proven to be the best means of comparative self-assessment by entities having common goals on a mutually-agreed standard criteria stressing that it is a means through which organisations identify common challenges and map out best strategy to surmount them.
He assured the visiting Head of Service that the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation is fully digitised with all its functions hinging on information technology and infrastructure.
Responding, Oyo-Ita expressed delight in the performances recorded by the accountant-general and his team at a very short time. Oyo-Ita said: ‘’I must say that the IPPIS regime has recorded tremendous achievement since its introduction by government, especially in the area of bringing sanity to our payroll system. I can say without mincing words that it has enabled us save about N206 billion for government after the verification exercise carried out in MDAs.’’
She, therefore, solicited the co-operation and synergy of both establishments to be able to deliver good efficient and effective service delivery to Nigerians.
