Muwanga says that previous problems on the payroll that had caused all salary delays were a result of intensive data migration exercise from the old payroll to the Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPS) which she says has been solved.
Muwanga also says that the 251 cases that are not paid was due to process related errors and are still pending for further verification by the Accounting Officers, and will be paid this April after thorough Verification.
The ministry, however, confirms that with all payroll data there will be no more delays in salary payments and ghost risks because all civil servants on the payroll have had their data captured biometrically, an act that will ease the verification of all those ghost names.
She has also requested all accounting officers to give all their payment instructions to the ministry of finance before the end of this week.
Mwanga has clarified that despite the fact that salary payment system has been decentralised, the centralised system also still remains because the two are coordinated in terms of verification, and that decentralisation was done in payment of salaries not payroll management.
However, among the entities that have so far been decentralised in salary payment included; 27 central government ministries that were decentralised in January, 37 entities that were decentralised in February which include referral hospitals, ministries and agencies.
Two districts; Wakiso and Bushenyi, and 8 entities which included KCCA, prisons, police, 5 public universities among others, were decentralised in March.
The whole exercise is to be concluded by June 2014.
