The image validation of employees on the payroll of the Controller and Account General’s Department (CAGD) ,which has become a great concern to employees will have no effect on payment of salaries.
A reliable source explained to EducationGhana that the image validation though is necessary, CAGD hasn’t taken any decision regarding penalties for employees who could not get their images on the system.
The source also disclosed, that it is a very good initiative to get the images of employees on their system and so employees could possibly do that,though one’s inability to do that wouldn’t have any effect on his or her salary.
Employees can follow the procedure below to get their images uploaded onto the system…..
† What is needed is *one passport picture* –
Employees whose pictures have been appearing on the epayslip website will have their image automatically displayed already on the image validation page at the e-spv website so there will be no need to scan/upload your passport picture but who knows, it will be wise to submit/carry your passport picture along.
Below is the procedure for the image validation:
If you are a validator – (or tell your validator to do it or collect the login details [ *username and password*] from your validator if he/she is far from you), and log on to www. gogspv. com at an internet cafe/photocopy shop or epayslip printing shop – or at your home/office if you have the necessary equipment (scanner, computer, internet connection and the skills to do it)
1. Enter the username ,password and the verification code displayed there and click login
2. When the page opens, just go to the top right corner and click on Validate image
The *staff list* will pop up.
Every teacher on the page has ”validate” at the extreme right against his or her name. (Note: Missing staffs will not appear)
3. Just click on the validate and wait a while. That particular teacher’s name will appear with other details (an already displayed image or an option to upload an image)
If the teacher’s picture/image is already there ( those whose pictures have been appearing on the epayslip website will have their image automatically displayed already there) and you can recognize the face, just click on approve.
If the teacher’s picture/image is not there, ask that teacher to submit one of their passport pictures to you the validator ( or give that teacher the username and password to the website to do it by themselves if the teacher is far away) then the validator or the teacher must scan and crop the passport picture/image to fit below 2MB image size and upload the passport picture (at an internet cafe/photocopy shop or epayslip printing shop – the attendant can help you scan, crop to fit below 2MB image size and upload.
The validator or the teacher must make sure that is the real image of the teacher, and approve it.
(If you have a scanner, computer, internet connection and the skills then you can do it yourself at your home or office)
After approving the image it means you have done the image validation successfully
Note If a teacher’s name is not on the management unit (Missing staffs) just contact your *C.S or District Education Directorate/ippd officer or go to controller to correct it,or visit Here for the procedure.
(the best option is to go to controller to correct it yourself because the officers at the district directorate can’t be trusted because they may not correct it or they might delay in correcting it which might affect the free flow of your salary)
