MONROVIA, LIBERIA -The Liberian Government says no civil servant will be paid salary without bearing a National Identification Card, beginning July 2020.
The pronouncement was contained in a joint statement issued Wednesday, June 10, 2020 by the Payroll Clean-Up Task Force.
The Payroll Clean-Up Task Force includes the Civil Service Agency (CSA), National Identification Registry (NIR), Ministry of Finance (MOF) and Internal Audit Agency (IAA).
It marks the beginning of the enforcement of a key provision of the Wage Bill Control Regulation endorsed by the Cabinet in March this year.
According to the statement, the National Identification Card is a compulsory requirement for Government employees’ salary payments.
The statement, read by CSA Director-General, James Thompson, said the measure is intended to remove ghost names from the Government payroll.
