The Federal Government is introducing stringent measures to protect data integrity on its Integrated Personnel and Payroll Management System (IPPIS), an e-Government platform introduced for more efficient running of the public sector.
The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation says it will take steps to ensure that Officers in the Federal Public Service are no longer able to manipulate their records on the platform.
