Here is the GSS PHC Payment clearance requirements for all field Officers. Field Officers Who Do not Meet These Requirements Cannot Be Cleared and subsequently Paid.
GSS PHC Payment Clearance Requirements
Clearance of all enumerators and supervisors is at three levels as follows
1. EA/SA by the supervisor
2. District level by the DDQMT
3. and validated at HQ for final payment.
EA/SA Clearance by the supervisor
Within the SA, the supervisor ensures that all the clearance requirements are satisfied before presenting the work of the SA to the DDQMT.
District level Clearance by the DDQMT.
DDQMT ensures that all EAs within the SA have met the performance requirements of the contract. In preparation for the clearance session, the DQM downloads data afresh for the SA. DQM must submit the teams/SAs that have passed through the process successfully to HQ for validation. DIT must take the backup of all data on the tablets and collect all IT materials taking note of any lost items.
Validation at HQ for final payment.
HQ validates the recommendations from DQMs and ensures that all EAs in the SA are on the GIS list of EAs that have been fully covered in listing.
HQ then compiles the list of SAs that have successfully passed the criteria and forward to the Finance team for final payment.
Note: Districts must be approved for clearance before any SA can be cleared.
