IPPIS: FG looking into ASUU’s preferred payment platform – Ngige


Indications emerged Tuesday night that the Federal Government may adopt the University Transparency Account System (UTAS), a payment platform developed by ASUU in preference to IPPIS.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has pushed for adoption of UTAS instead of Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS) which it insisted that they would never succumb.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige told journalists after about two and half hours closed door meeting with the Senate leadership on Tuesday.

He said the alternative platform presented by ASUU is home grown and worth given thorough assessment test.

“We agreed at the meeting to give required consideration to the UTAS alternative they came up with as a way of finding lasting solution to the lingering crisis over Implementation of IPPIS.

“We have neither jettisoned the implementation of the IPPIS nor fully accepted UTAS .The level we moved to now, is to subject ASUU’s UTAS to integrity test and in doing so, it will be presented to users like the office of Accountant General of the Federation on Wednesday .
