  16. We don’t need a consolidated pay we need various ways to manage the public purse. Lazy officials for instance can’t go home with clearance of the supervisor. Today they are paid anyway. Responsible officers are also human they make mistakes like vindicating others or persecuting others like deleting on the patrolling,or acting positions. Confirm those acting if within 6months not position not filled. Responsible officers should have a final say. MOPS is a lame duck which listen to RP too much. These SO victimize the public service/servant. Need to review them not in tandem with the law
