COEASU to FG: Migrate salaries of all lecturers to UTAS

The Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union Thursday urged the Federal Government to migrate all payment of salaries of all lecturers in tertiary institutions to the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), the alternative payment platform developed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

COEASU President, Smart Olugbeko, in a statement, said UTAS should be adopted for the entire academic staff in tertiary institutions as “it takes care of the peculiarities of the institutions including financial autonomy, sabbatical service, and administration of discipline and fraud prevention.”

He said the government’s insistence on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System “constitutes a ridiculous contradiction to the anti-corruption posture of the present administration”.

He alleged, “Apart from undermining the statutory functions of the governing councils and breaching the establishment integrity of the tertiary education sector in general and the college of education system in particular, IPPIS opens the payroll up to unilateral manipulations and cool fraud.”
