The Government of Uganda has selected FreeBalance, a Canadian software company, to provide an Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPS) as part of the Public Service Reform Programme (PSRP). The FreeBalance solution is a fully integrated web-based human resource information management and payroll system designed exclusively for government. It is a turnkey implementation of commercial off-the-shelf software and includes hardware and services. On completion it will be implemented in nearly 200 sites, including all central government ministries, agencies, departments and local governments. The payroll system will manage a civil service workforce of 391,635 employees.
FreeBalance is partnered with CRC Sogema, a Canadian consultancy firm specialising in public reforms in Africa, and Computech Uganda. This is FreeBalance’s second African installation, the first being an integrated financial management information system for Sierra Leone.
