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 www.cagd.gov.gh for more information
