The Controller and Accountant General Department (CAGD) is to introduce E-Pay slips for public sector workers soon.

The system, expected on stream before the end of 2013, would enable workers to view the summary of their pay slips on mobile phones before going to the banks.

Madam Grace Adzroe, Acting Controller and Accountant General, announced this at the inauguration of a payroll printing site in Ho for the Eastern and Volta regions yesterday.

The printing of payroll reports in the regions would be limited to payment vouchers and pay slips with access to authorised Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to delete some names on the payroll.

Madam Adzroe said the Department is also working on an E-Payment voucher, which would be transmitted to heads of department for review and approve before payments are done.

She said the initiatives were to ensure efficiency and   eliminate ghost names on the payroll.

Madam Adzroe said the decision to decentralise the printing of payroll reports was to ensure that MMDAs got their payroll reports on time and take necessary actions on anomalies.

She said apart from the printing site, the Department had also established client service units to address challenges face by employees and pensioners.

Mr Seth Terkper, Minister for Finance in an address read on his behalf charged heads of institutions to help eliminate ghost names on the payroll.

He said the country would be able to achieve a lot if 10 per cent of “wastes” in the payroll system were eliminated.

Mr Francis Ganyaglo, Deputy Volta Regional Minister cautioned heads of institutions and workers of the CAGD against imputing “ghost” names on the payroll.
