Head of the civil service of the federation Winifred Oyo-Ita has revealed that the federal government would begin verification of employees in ministries, departments, and agencies on Monday.
Oyo-Ita noted this on Friday in a press conference where she also said the exercise would last for about two weeks.
“Those who fail to carry out the online update are therefore excluded from this verification exercise,” she added.
“The upcoming verification exercise is therefore to authenticate documents of the individual employees of the federal government and the procedure is that every employee will present themselves for screening and the documents scanned into the system.
“At the end of the verification exercise, discrepancies will be resolved to ensure that what is finally uploaded into the IPPIS platform has a high level of data integrity.
“The Verification exercise shall commence on Monday, July 16 with the core MDAs and it is expected to be completed in two weeks.
“All the concerned MDAs are to cooperate with the verifiers by providing enabling environment for the successful conduct of the exercise according to the circulated timetable.
“Verification of the other MDAs not covered in the first phase shall be covered in the first phase. Finally, the verified data will be migrated to the database of the IPPIS platform. This is expected to pave the way for the automated HR processes.”
She also said, “The consequence of non- compliance is having your data deleted from the federal government employee database.
“The HR module will increase productivity and improve transparency within the public service such that there is employee traceability, personnel data Integrity, transaction accountability, process delivery, and planning database.”
