HUMAN RESOURCE AND PAYROLL AUDITBushnell Odhiambo
Her Excellency Governor Gladys Wanga has today ordered a payroll and personnel census audit of the Homa Bay county public service.
The directive is aimed at exterminating from the payroll, suspected ghost workers that has costed the county millions of shillings over the years.
The audit is also expected to enhance efficiency and integrity of the county human resource systems in order to improve service delivery.
Irregularities and fraudulent undertakings that may have been committed in the human resource management will now be put to the test through the audit.
The audit will also include verification and authentication of academic documents presented by candidates who were successfully appointed to various positions.
Governor Wanga is committed to putting in place an efficient and disciplined public service, where meritocracy and professionalism will be appreciated.
The Governor has warned that corruption and extortion that previously marred every recruitment in the county will now not be tolerated.
She urged the public to report attempted extortion and corruption incidences to her office for action from time to time.
Last week, top HR managers in the county were sent on compulsory leave to give room for the audit to take place.
Today the county has advertised for a Request for Proposal to attract a competent HR and Payroll Assurance firm to help with the audit.
