The Deputy Controller General, Madam Grace Adzoe, on Thursday announced that some employees of the Ghana Education Service (GES)would not receive the programmed three months arrears as part of their February Salary Payment.

According to her, the anomaly was detected after the February payroll evaluation was conducted and assured the public that the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) had identified the affected persons and would pay them their due at the end of March.

She pleaded with the affected persons to exercise patience since it had taken steps to resolve the anomaly and asked any civil servant who had detected any mistake on his or her February salary to report to the payroll desk officers in their various districts.

Madam Adzoe made the announcement at the opening of a two-day educational forum on the mechanized payroll organized by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department for civil servants in Takoradi.

The forum, the fourth in the series nationwide, is to educate and explain the principles of the single spine pay policy as well as take suggestions from civil servants in order to improve the quality of payment.

The deputy Controller General revealed that 53 institutions on the government’s payroll had been migrated onto the SSSS so far representing 90 per cent of organizations migrated.

She stated that the CAGD had established payroll clinics in the various metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies across the country with desk officers who have been mandated to take complaints from civil servants and forward them to the head office for rectification.

Madam Adzoe said payroll preparation is a collective responsibility whereby the heads of the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and finance officers are supposed to provide data and information about their employees to the CAGD to enable them to prepare the payroll successfully.

“You must provide data on your employees on time while those who have been newly recruited,transferred, retired , resigned or deserted their post should be reported to the Controller for prompt action”, she advised.

The Chief Director of the Western Regional Coordinating Council, Mr. David Yaro, who chaired the function, advised heads of departments not to collude with persons who had left the Civil Service to collect salary.
