The Controller and Accountant-General’s Department is embarking on a nationwide virtual sensitization exercise on the new upgraded Third-Party Reference System (TPRS).
According to a statement sighted Educandghana.net indicates that the TPRS system will allow Third Party Institutions (TPIs) to directly deduct loan repayments, Insurance premiums, welfare contributions and credit union deductions from salaries of Government of Ghana (GOG) employees at source.
Moreover, the upgrade is to address fraudulent and impersonation issues, wrongful deductions from TPls 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.
Meanwhile, employees are also required to upload their pictures on the GOG E-Payslip platform to enable them access TPIs 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 therefore wishes to encourage all Civil and Local Government staff to participate in this sensitization as per the schedule and the Zoom link attached.
