Introduction of New Payroll Management System
During the period under review and to lend credence to the staff verification and secure the salary payment process, the Ministry introduced and implemented a cost effective human resource management, payroll processing and salary administration system with seamless connectivity to the payment gateway capable of effecting online salary payment to all State employees irrespective of their banks nationwide. The benefits of the new system include:
The Ministry has before handed over the procurement of official vehicles to Ministry of Works, Transport and Energy, procured vehicles for the various MDAs and allocated some to political office holders, judicial officers, and civil servants on monetization basis. The policy allows allottees to pay 50% of the cost of the vehicles at the end of which the vehicles become their own. With the monetization policy of vehicles in place, Government gets more value for her vehicles as allottees are aware that at the end of four years the vehicles will automatically become their own personal vehicles with the payment of 50% of the cost of the vehicles. In this wise, the old practice where Government vehicles were recklessly used and rendered unserviceable with very short life span has been permanently taken care of. Apart from this, several vehicles have been procured to service heads of extra-ministerial departments whose income cannot fit into monetization policy of government. Such vehicles are to be used as official vehicles to facilitate the conduct of government business in such establishments. This has greatly eased movement and enhanced the supervisory role of government’s projects under MDAs.
