AHMED IDRIS UNVEILS PLANS BY FG TO DEAL WITH CRITICAL ROLE PLAYERS IN IPPIS

Accountant General of the Federation (A. G. F) Mr. Ahmed Idris has unveiled plans by the Federal Government to deal decisively with Role players in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System ( IPPIS) involved in Infraction across the country.

The A.G.F at the final phase of the Nationwide Training for IPPIS Role players yesterday in Minna, Niger State warned that there is no room for compromise while urging the Role players to handle their schedule with trust.

He added that IPPIS Role Players in Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) will be held responsible for their activities on the IPPIS platform and any of them that is culpable in infractions will be dealt with decisively according to the laws by the government.

IPPIS Role Players are staff of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs)including tertiary institutions and the Police that have been granted access to carry out certain roles on the centralized IPPIS platform.

Earlier, the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation ( OAGF) announced the decentralization of the operations of the IPPIS, an action aimed at enabling Ministries, Departments, Agencies, tertiary institutions, and the Police to handle some issues in their payroll without necessarily having to come to the IPPIS headquarters in Abuja.

Mr.Idris reminded the IPPIS Role Players that they are an important part of the complex machinery meant to sustain a flawless payroll system and advised that they should be honest, diligent, and correctly apply the ideas gained at the training in carrying out the responsibility assigned to them.

Highlighting the Presidential directive that all government personnel should be enrolled on the IPPIS, Mr . Idris maintained that although some individuals and associations have attempted to discredit the policy, a large percentage of government personnel have been enrolled on the IPPIS platform. He assured that more efforts will be made to get the remaining government employees onto the IPPIS platform.

In his remarks at the closing of the training, the Director- IPPIS – Dr. Ben Nsikak appreciated the Accountant General of the Federation for approving the training exercise while expressing optimism that with the training, the IPPIS Role Players have been adequately equipped to carry out updates and variations in their payroll.

He advised the Role Players to limit themselves to the activities that are expected of them.

He further explained that as part of efforts to checkmating the abuse of the processes, updates, and variations carried out by the Role-Players are to be reviewed by internal auditors in the respective MDAs.

According to him the accounting officers in the MDAs are to sign up and take responsibility for whatever updates have been carried out.

The IPPIS Role Players are staff of MDAs including Tertiary Institutions and Police who have been granted access to handle some issues in their Payroll without coming to the IPPIS Headquarters in Abuja.

The nationwide training has been successfully held in the six geopolitical zones for IPPIS Role Players in various geopolitical zones of the country.
