The Accountant-General’s Department halts pay for some public sector employees



Some public sector employees have had their salaries withheld until September 2022 by the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD).

The CAGD claimed that invalid bank account numbers and a mismatch in the bank names of the affected government employees on the payroll system contributed to the decision.
According to a letter JoyNews obtained, the CAGD made the announcement on October 3 following the completion of “quality assurance and other validation processes.”

It advised affected employees whose bank names did not match to go to the CAGD’s payroll coordination unit in Block A, Room 32 with MDA-signed documents proving their presence.
The following documents are required:an appointment letter, a letter from their current posting, a National Identification card, pay slips for the past three months, and a leaflet from their bank account with a voided check.

The letter also stated that “employees with invalid bank account numbers are expected to submit their correct account numbers to the PPSs for update.”
