Design and Implementation of State Civil Service Payroll Accounting System
Ever since man discovered the computer and hence computer science, attempt have been made to computerize every facet of human life. This project work experts the issue of designing and implementing a state civil payroll accounting system which inherent advantages (speed and accuracy over the more tedious inefficient and time consuming manual system. This system encountered the following problems. Late receipt of raw data each month. Regular break down of the accountant machine presently used for data processing, irregular power supply, many errors resulting from the manual methods of data processing and the office caused by bulky files and constant complaints for errors from the workers. Consequently a computerized payroll accounting system when designed to take care of the above problems.
ORGANIZATION OF THE WORK
The study is being organized in seven chapter Chapter one contains the introduction of the project at hand. The problem is being stated. It also contains the purpose of the study, aims scope or delimitation or constraints, assumptions and definition of terms. Chapter two is the literature review. This is where the related work about payroll is reviewed. Chapter three in the description and analysis of the existing system. The design of the new system is the content of chapter four. Chapter five involves the implementation of the new system. It also includes the program design. Program flowcharts, pseudo codes, course program and test run. Chapter six is the documentation of new system. Chapter seven, contains the recommendation and references
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Computer, the versatile data processing machine has been found very useful in every human endeavor since its incursion into many fields of study, industry, business, sciences and technology in general. Payroll is being prepared by organization, committees, governments and other business firms, it is also part of account department, many organization concern. It is used for the preparation of worker’s salary daily, weekly or monthly.
The payroll module which helps in data processing, processes monthly pay of all the employees in state civil service commission. The module maintains staff loans, advances, tax and other deductions from staff pay. It also performs annual increment on the salary of qualified staff each month. The payroll list every employee for whom the computer has produced a payroll chewue and shows for each employee what deductions are subtracted from gross earnings to arrive at net pay. This report is reviewed by the manager of the payroll department before the cheques are released for distribution.
1.2 PROBLEM DEFINITION
Over the years, manual method of payroll has been used. This method has its problems. It has been proven to be very ineffective and inefficient. Some of the problems are
a. The job of preparing salary payment manually is tedious causes delay
b. As a result of the problem above, manual method have a lot of discrepancies.
c. This method encourage fraud figures are easily manipulated and changed.
d. The manual method requires people who are competent in mathematics related computation to do a reliable job. As a result people of such are very scarce.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF STUDY
The study aims at designing a payroll accounting system that will help to eliminate mistakes, delay and frauds associated with manual calculation of workers salaries and entitlements
If the designed new system is implemented it may improve and to a large extend enhance the activities of processing staff salary payment in state civil commission Enugu Office
The workers will be relived by the tedious tasks facing them in the discharging of their duties. They will have more time to themselves and also increase their standard of work.
