Abstract
At the time of the case study visits in August 2006 and March 2007, the Government of Ghana had had a long history of attempts to improve the management and control of the civil service and its payroll. A key component of reform since the mid-1990s had been the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Database (IPPD) system, a centralised computer system intended to manage the payroll and handle personnel information for civil servants, teachers and health workers. The Government had also placed records and information management at the core of public sector reform. Staff of the Public Records and Archives Administration Department (PRAAD) had made great progress in improving records management across government and restructuring registries as the traditional information centres of government operations.
