Get all ministries on GIFMIS and IPPIS

The Government Integrated Financial Management information system, GIFMIS, is an IT-based system for budget management and accounting that is being implemented by the Federal Government of Nigeria for the improvement of public expenditure. It has also been put in place to manage the processes of accountability and transparency across ministries and agencies. The GIFMIS has a symbiotic relationship with the Internal Personnel Payroll Information Systems, IPPIS, put in place to help plan financial resources more efficiently and effectively. Both programmes are under the supervision of the Accountant General of the Federation, who uses the systems to ascertain the number of employees that government has and what their remuneration is. As a matter of fact, both programmes are supposed to track and check the incidence of ghost workers in the system.

Information making the rounds suggests that while nearly all government ministries and agencies have been linked to the GIFMIS and IPPIS, some of them like the ministries of defense and education have over the years refused to be integrated in a grid that regulates the number of employees in their ministries.

From all indications, it is clear that government is trying to harmonize all public accounts through the Treasury Single Account, TSA. If this is going to work, everyone must be on the grid, particularly the ministry of education, the Police and the Army.
