This follows the validation and certification of the payment vouchers of the affected workers by their heads of departments after the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD) had opened a window of opportunity for them to do so.

The CAGD suspended the salaries of 14,829 employees in the Greater Accra Region from the mechanised payroll in January 2015 because heads of departments failed to validate and certify the vouchers for payment.

According to the CAGD, the validation and certification of payment vouchers by heads of departments was a mandatory requirement for the payment of the salaries of employees.

However, the CAGD opened a window of opportunity for the affected workers by asking the heads of departments and management units who did not validate their employees to do so between Monday, January 26 and Tuesday, January 27, 2015.

According to the Controller and Accountant-General, Ms Grace Adzroe, the heads of departments authorised the CAGD to delete the names of 20 workers from the payroll for various reasons, including retirement, resignation and death.

She said a supplementary payroll had been prepared for the affected workers to be paid.

She added that if the heads of management units who were required to validate the payment vouchers did their job well, it would help delete ‘ghosts’ from the government payroll.
