The national exercise to clean the country’s payroll system has begun with the Internal Audit Agency (IAA).
The move is aimed at cleaning the over bloated payroll structure at all public sector institutions.
The Executive Secretary of the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC), Ben Arthur said the exercise will ensure fairness in the public sector payroll system.
The decision by the FWSC to conduct the payroll monitoring is aimed at ensuring fairness in the salary structure for public workers.
Another objective is to reduce the huge public sector compensation, which constitute a significant portion of domestic revenue.
According to Mr. Arthur, sanctions will be applied to persons found earning undeserved salaries.
“I want to announce to the general public especially the public sector workers that this exercise is not a joke and if you know you’re not deserving of the salary or allowance you are taking, advice yourself accordingly before we get hold of you” he warned.
The Director General of the IAA, Eric Oduro Sae said the agency will support the initiative to come out with the best outcome.
“This assignment is in collaboration with the FWSC is critical because compensation of employers in the budget of government is getting high and we need to clean it up as soon as possible. The best way is to make sure this collaboration works for the betterment of our country” he noted.
A dedicated account has been created at the bank of Ghana by the Controller and Accountants General Department for culprits to voluntarily return any payments that is not justified.
