Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) has encountered a technical challenge for the month of May as it tries to make ESPV validation for government workers on the payroll ready for salaries to be paid.
The Controller and Accountant General’s Department which is responsible for the payment of government of Ghana workers is said to be battling with a technical issue hence the delays for validating government workers as reports from the said Public Relations Officer (PRO) indicate.
CAGD assures as they exist to provide Public Financial Management Services to the Government and the general public through efficient, skilled, well-motivated, and dedicated staff, using the most appropriate technology.
In a media encounter, the department said that all validators should remain calm as the technical challenge that they are currently facing will never have any effect on the payment of government workers across the country come the month of May.
Meanwhile, newly trained teachers numbering over 2,000 will be affected in the payment since they weren’t able to go through the biometric registration exercise as provisions were made available by the Ghana education Service Directorate.
Frontline health workers have also been assured of their salary increment as frontline health workers in the country would receive an additional allowance of 50 percent of their basic salary per month for four months—March, April, May, and June.
The Controller and Accountant General’s Department was established under the Civil Service Act, 1960 (CA.5)
