The circular, which was addressed to all permanent secretaries, Directors of Human Resources Management and all the affected officers, was titled: ‘Suspension of salary of employees with insufficient IPPIS Human Resource records’.

According to the circular, the 720 affected civil servants were given the grace of between October 30 and November 6, 2020, to perfect their records or have their salaries suspended with immediate effect.

The affected officers were directed to present documents such as their personal files at the point of entry into service and original copies of their credentials for final clearance of issues surrounding their dates of birth and dates of first appointment.

The circular read in part, “Respective MDAs are required to confirm the identity of the affected officers from their ministries through letters duly endorsed by the Director (HRM), otherwise they would not be attended to.”
