Samson: Parliamentary Finance Explains The Reasons For The Delay In Paying Employees’ Salaries

21st February, 2021

The Finance Committee clarified, today, Sunday, the reasons for the delay in paying employees’ salaries, specifying the party responsible for the delay.

A member of the Finance Committee, Naji Redis, said, “The notice of employee salaries being paid was delayed due to the general conditions that the country is going through from Corona and the comprehensive curfew.”

Noting that “salaries will not be delayed this month or the coming months and they are fully insured.

He noted, “Finance depends on the 12/1 system for the payment of salaries, and the delay that accompanies the payment of salaries every month is borne by the Accounting Department at the Ministry of Finance for its reliance on old mechanisms in banking transactions, despite the incident of the financial systems followed in the world and the Central Bank of Iraq in particular.”

He added, “It is likely that major changes will be made in the accounting department at the ministry, since it is still insisting so far on using old methods instead of modern ones in sending salary payment notices to employees.”     LINK

MilitiaMan:  This sure looks like there is a consensus in that they know a new mechanism is coming into play. Modern is not in the old but new mechanism.

Well that to me suggest they are to pay in a timely manner with a new rate (mechanism) in the future. A mechanism applied in such a manner that fully insures payments will be on time and not delayed any longer.

Thereby, we can deduce they have a digitial system coming into play. Probably one that will interlink with not only internal transactions but, regionally and globally.. imo. I like it..  ~ MM
