Almost three years after approval by the Kano State government, the state will begin the implementation of Treasury Single Account (TSA) in January 2020.
The state Commissioner of Finance, Shehu Na Allah Kura, who disclosed this on Monday at a workshop for Directors of Administration and General Services and Heads of Accounts in public institutions in the state, said the decision was part of the resolutions taken at the November 2017 meeting of the state executive council.
Kura, who was represented at the workshop by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Zakari Sadiq Buda, said the state government has contracted consultants, the Systems Specs, to train civil servants on the full implementation of the program.
The commissioner said: “The project is to cover all Kano State government Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs), tertiary institutions, judiciary and local governments, while maintaining and adhering to autonomy and extant laws.
“The Treasury Single Account implementation will cover all the state government receipts and revenue, all state government payments and statewide processing and payment of the salaries and pensions.”
He urged all the MDAs, institutions, and employees to cooperate with the government, representatives and its consultants for full implementation of the TSA.
