The Ministry of Finance (MoF) continues its efforts to implement the financial Circular No.3 for 2016 on ‘uploading Emirates ID details within employees’ records in the Federal Financial System’.
Since the issuance of the circular in April, the number of employees with incomplete or inaccurate national ID details went down to 280 employees compared to 3,000 employees previously.
MoF withheld July salaries of employees with incomplete or inaccurate national ID details until completed.
MoF followed up with ministries and federal entities to ensure the completion of uploading the Emirates ID number, as it is an essential reference to speed up all government transactions for all federal government employees, in addition to the important link between the Emirates ID number and a number of significant federal government projects.
Mariam Mohammed Al Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary for the Management of Financial Resources, stressed need for all ministries and federal entities to ensure the completion of uploading the required data in the federal financial system as having the correct data facilitates and accelerates government transactions and employees’ requests.
Al Amiri added: “The Ministry of Finance urges all ministries and federal entities linked to the Federal Financial System to complete the process of uploading the Emirates ID details to release employees’ July salaries as soon as possible. We also urge for other federal entities that adopt their own financial systems to complete the national ID details at the earliest.”
The Ministry has previously announced on the need for all ministries and federal entities linked to the Federal Financial System to enter or correct the Emirates ID numbers of their employees by July 10, 2016.
