Interim Support to South Sudan Electronic Payroll System

2012–2013

We were funded by the Joint Donor Team for South Sudan to continue to provide support to the South Sudan Electronic Payroll System, which we had helped the government set up and roll-out over the preceding four years, and through which 150,000 public servants' pay, across more than 300 institutions, is processed every month, and which GRSS has since sustained without external support for over two years.

Development and implementation of South Sudan Electronic Payroll System

2011–2012

Our team, first as part of Booz & Company (2008-2011), and then, from mid-2011, as Charlie Goldsmith Associates, subcontracted by Booz, helped the Government of the Republic of South Sudan (and its pre-independence predecessor) to set up and roll out the South Sudan Electronic Payroll System (SSEPS), starting from education and health, and then rolling out across the whole public service. 150,000 public servants' pay, across more than 300 institutions, is processed through SSES every month, and GRSS has now sustained it without external support for over two years. SSEPS has been a flagship practical public financial management reform, and has made possible major increases in resources for health and education pay.
