Following the introduction of reforms in accounting for financial transaction, especially Treasury Single Account TSA by the Federal Government, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has organized training for its staff in Finance and Account Department and Internal Audit on current developments in financial system at the weekend in Lagos.
The Director General, Muhammad Sani Sidi said that the training was meant to update staff on current realities in the financial transaction and broaden the scope and mind of the staff to be aware of the enormous expectations of government and the public in general as well as to be in line with international best practices.
“In view of the current humanitarian challenges in the North east and the amount of resources required to address emerging challenges the training to review policies and plans has become necessary”, he added.
Sani Sidi said the Federal Government had introduced so many reforms in accounting for financial transaction, such as Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPS), Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIFMIS), Treasury Single Account (TSA) etc. and inventory documentation would soon be included.
“The need for proper accounting for good decision making cannot be overemphasized. It is therefore obligatory for you to provide management with financial and non financial information that will assist management in making sound decisions”. he emphasised.
He urged staff who distinguished themselves to keep the good work and cautioned them to avoid doing anything capable of tarnishing the image of the agency.
