The Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) wishes to inform employees who receive salary through the mechanized payroll, Heads of MDAs/MMDAs, and the general public about an exercise to stop the salaries of employees who do not have bank account numbers in the CAGD payroll system.
This announcement was posted several times on the pays lips of the affected employees requesting them to provide update on their bank accounts to facilitate the payment of salaries by the banks. However, after the deadline for the submission of this information on 30th June 2014, only few employees have complied with the directive.
In light of the above, CAGD has begun an exercise to stop the salaries of employees who failed to supply their bank account details in line with Regulation 298 (3) of the Financial Administration Regulation, 2004 (LI 1802). The stoppage of salaries will be done in phases beginning with Dodowa District in the month of July 2014. The salaries of affected staff can only be restored after a written authority by a Head of department and certification of employment and bank accounts details by the Audit Service at the district level.
The Department wishes to urge employees to furnish the Personnel Processing Sections (PPSs) of their sector Ministries with their bank account details for verification and update on the system.
Heads of MDAs/MMDAs and employees may contact the Head of Payroll at the Treasury Headquarters in Accra, the Regional Directorates of the CAGD or the District, Municipal and Metropolitan Finance offices for assistance or call telephone number
