PRESS RELEASE: Validation Of Salaries Through The E-SPV System

The Controller and Accountant General (CAG) wishes to inform Heads of MDAs/MMDAs and employees that the Electronic Salary Payment Voucher (E-SPV) system has been rolled out in eight (8) regions namely, Greater Accra, Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Upper East, Upper West, Central, Western and Northern Regions.

Employees in these regions would now be paid by the CAGD only after both Heads of Management Units and Human Resource (HR) officers defined on the E-SPV system validate the salaries of employees for the month. If Heads of Management Units and HR officers do not validate the salaries of employees working under those Management Units the employees would not be paid by the system.

The validation of salaries by Heads of Management Units is a requirement for payment of salaries under Regulation 304 of the Financial Administration Regulation, 2004 (LI 1803).

The CAG wishes to urge Heads of Departments in these regions to take keen interest in the validation process and ensure that Heads of Management Units and the HR officers validate the salaries for every month.

Employees who may not receive their salary as a result of non-validation of their salaries by Heads of Management Units and HR officers would be paid the following month after the Heads of Management Units and HR officers validate the salaries.

It has been decided that the CAGD will publish the list of Management Units whose employees’ salaries were not paid because of non-validation by the heads of Management Units and HR officers on the CAGD website at .

Heads of Departments and employees are encouraged to visit the CAGD website in case they have issues with non-validation of their salaries for more details.

GIFMIS/IPPD2 Shutdown For Migration On To The RAC Platform

The Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) wishes to inform MDAs and MMDAs and in particular GIFMIS/IPPD2 users that the system will be shut down temporarily to enable the Department migrate to the Real Applications Cluster (RAC) platform.

The period of the shutdown is from 24th August to 1st September, 2014 and during this period the system will not be available for ordinary business.

It would be recalled that the GIFMIS Financial module was integrated with the Government payroll system (IPPD2) to achieve budgetary control over payroll cost and allow seamless posting of Payroll data into the GIFMIS General Ledger for effective reporting.

The next step in the process of enhancing system availability and performance for both Oracle Financials and IPPD2 users is to migrate the Integrated Application to a Real Applications Cluster (RAC) platform.

MDAs and affected MMDAs are entreated to utilise the available period between now and 24th August to complete processing of all GIFMIS/IPPD2 transactions on the system. The GIFMIS Project Secretariat is available to assist if there are any challenges.

The Department regrets any inconvenience caused by the shutdown.

For further information, please contact the GIFMIS Service Desk on 0302963915 or 0302963913 or 0302999736. You may also visit our website on for more information
