The Federal Ministry of Finance says it has concluded the training of accounting personnel of Ministries, Departments and Agencies MDAs under it on the operations of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System IPPIS project.

It said that the measure was to ensure quick delivery of services, transparency and accountability in government operations.

The Director, IPPIS, office of the Accountant-General of the Federation Ben Nsikak, said this in Minna after a three-day training tagged: “Nationwide IPPIS Training for IPPIS Roll Players”.

Nsikak said that the office of the Accountant- General had decentralised the operations of the IPPIS, hence the training to enable the MDAs to carry out updates and variations without coming to Abuja, the Headquarters.

He said that the accounting officers recommended the IPPIS roll players before the Accountant General’s office would give them access.

The director said that the IPPIS project which started in 2007 with about seven MDAs had increased to 711 MDAs now.

He said that each of the MDAs had about three to four IPPIS desk officers who were saddled with certain financial responsibility.
