- In Cameroon, the Ministry of Justice has signed up for the roll out of the Integrated Computer System for the Management of State Personnel and Pay Roll (SIGIPES). The project is in line with government's policy to decentralise management of state workers and it epitomises the will of the authorities to improve the career and pay roll of every state worker. This also permits every administration to permanently master its personnel and pay roll.
