The Controller and Accountant-General’s Department is embarking on a nationwide virtual sensitization exercise on the new upgraded Third-Party Reference System (TPRS).
As part of this initiative the Controller and Accountant General Department (CAGD) as a matter of policy requires Heads of MDAs and MMDAs to generate and submit monthly reports of Electronic Salary payment Vouchers (ESPV) validated.
The TPRS is a system that allows Third Party Institutions (TPIs) to directly deduct loan
repayments, Insurance premiums, welfare contributions and credit union deductions from salaries of GOG employees at source. The upgrade is to address fraudulent and impersonation issues, wrongful deductions from TPIs as well as affordability issues and credit worthiness of GOG employees when applying for loans and other facilities.
The new features of the TPRS are the generation of a Mandate Pin in addition to the Mandate Number. An employee needs an automatically generated Mandate Number and Mandate Pin which will be sent to his/her phone for any transaction with a TPI. Without a Mandate Pin, a TPI cannot process any transaction on an employee.
Employees are also required to upload their pictures on the GOG E-Payslip platform to enable them access TPI’s facilities. The upgraded system does not require a guarantor’s signature as a condition for an employee to access a facility. This makes the processing of facilities from TPls faster.
The sensitization is expected to start from 17th May to 27th May, 2021.
CAGD wish to encourage all Civil and Local Government staff to participate in this sensitization as per the schedule and the Zoom link attached.
Soft copies of fliers on the upgraded TPRS will be made available to all Institutions to be posted on your websites for the attention of your staff.
