Where a staff’s salary should be blocked or not validated, for any other reason not provided in the guidelines for salary validation, there should be an express
authorization by the District/ Regional Director or the Director General. This include where such recommendations are based on investigations or disciplinary committees at all level.

Management insist that where the reasons are based on the validation process guidelines, the validation officer who refuses to validate a staff, must immediately make a formal report to the Regional/District Director or the Director General as the case may be.
