PS Public Service, Amos Gathecha.

The government, through the State Department for Public Service, is working towards augmenting and undertaking critical programmes to strengthen management of the HR functions in the public service.

Speaking during the 2nd HR Summit for directors and deputy directors from ministries and departments in the public service, PS for Public Service Amos Gathecha said the government will introduce the Human Resource Information System-Kenya (HRIS-K) to manage HR functions in the public sector.

Gathecha noted that the programme will help build a public service that is adaptive, resilient and efficient with good mental health for a productive public sector workforce.

The PS said the HRIS-K system will also address wage bill matters with the government expected to migrate all payrolls to the system by 1st July, 2024.

He noted that the payroll module has been finalised awaiting integration with IFMIS, I-tax and Central Bank of Kenya Internet Banking (IB).

He disclosed that the system has been piloted successfully since April 2024 within the State Department for Performance and Delivery Management and Public Financial Management Reforms at National Treasury and Huduma Kenya.

“Training on the new system for payroll managers in MDAs is being undertaken in phases to ensure staff gain necessary skills and competencies for implementation,” he said.

Gathecha asked Directors responsible for HR functions in public service to familiarise themselves with the new system before roll out.

“We expect that it is going to bring a lot of soberness, the system will not accept any person who is not in the establishment,” he stated.
