The Federal Government has inaugurated a Presidential Steering Committee to review Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System(IPPIS), the Treasury Single Account(TSA) and Government Integrated Financial Management System( GIFMIS) over irregularities.
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami, who is also the chairman of committee inaugurated it on Friday in Abuja.
Pantami said that the committee would be supervised by the ministry and other relevant government institutions.
He also said that the systems have technical challenges which needed to be corrected.
Pantami said the committee has been mandated to proffer solutions to the possible leakages inherent in the systems that were exploited by people to divert public funds.
“This technical committee has been mandated by President Muhammadu Buhari, through a letter requesting his approval to review some of the technical processes and systems deployed in government.”
The minister explained that the process of deployment for IPPIS commenced in 2006, that of GISFMIS in 2012, while TSA commenced in 2015 accordingly.
He said that as at the time they were deployed, the provision of NITDA Act 2006 under section A of setting the standardisation of ICT deployment in federal public institutions was not followed.
