Earlier in October, Staff of the Controller and accountant Generals department threatened a no Validation until, their grievances are met, We want to know if they are sorted out.
The staff of the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) across the country are threatening to halt validation services for public sector workers over the non-payment of Special Duty Allowances (SDA) and other administrative issues.
They are further threatening to boycott the forthcoming production of the third-quarter national accounts of the Consolidated Fund.
According to them, their action has become necessary following delays in the payment of their allowances.
In a petition the staff is demanding the payment of their maintenance allowances for 2021 and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd quarters of 2022 without further delay.
They are therefore calling on management to address these issues within fourteen days or face their wrath.
The way the country is hot, Public sector workers will be the ones to suffer should such thing happen.
We are barely surviving, Just imagine at the end of the month we don’t receive anything because we are not validated.
Please don’t bring that, you can do anything to the authorities but our Validation we beg.
The aggrieved staff stated that “Our petition has become necessary following the worsening conditions of all CAGD staff and failure on the part of leadership to prioritize our welfare.
We are by this calling on management to address these issues within fourteen days failure of which we will advise ourselves including abstinence from the forthcoming production of 3rd quarter national accounts of the Consolidated Fund.No SDA, No accounts validation exercise”
According to the CAGD staff, their action has become necessary following delays in payment of the allowance at every year-end, an allowance that used to be part of staff salaries in the past.
Detailing their grievances they stated that “We, the staff of CAGD across the Sixteen Regions of Ghana hereby call upon you and your leadership to address the following issues bordering us, with immediate effect:2021 SDA be paid immediately and that of 2022 be paid by the end of the year whiles subsequent SDAs be consolidated into our monthly salaries”
The angry Controller and Accountant General Department staff also want management to initiate steps to prepare and implement better salary structure to reflect what other staff in sister Departments enjoy.
The staff wants CAGD to be elevated to Authority to empower it to work independently.
“Besides ensuring efficient disbursements of public funds, the Department also withholds and pays taxes into the consolidated fund.
Steps should be initiated to make the department either a Service or Authority. This will enable the Department to ensure professionalism without undue interference”.
They are also demanding that “Transfer or posting grant for all CAGD staff be borne by the department henceforth. Management should see to the formation of a vibrant labour union for all staff of the department. This will put to rest, the perceived sabotage by CLOGSAG so far as our SDA is concerned”.
The staff also requested for quarterly and timely government of Ghana releases to all Finance Units of the District Assemblies as its being done for other Departments.
According to them, delayed releases to CAGD Regional Directorates should be addressed and the amount increased to enhance smooth administration of the offices.
They also want Chief Accountants of the Department to be placed on level 23 and ACAG moved to level 24.
The Controller and Accountant-General’s Department is mandated by the Public Financial Management Act, 2016 (Act 921) to: “Receive all Public and Trust monies payable into the Consolidated Fund (done through its staff stationed in all government departments including the revenue collecting ones).
