The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has asked teachers to update their phone contacts on the Teachers’ Management Information System, TMIS. This shall be done by 12th February, 2019.
Here is the Circular by TSC boss, Dr Nancy Macharia, on the same:
“In order to improve communication with all its employees, the Commission has installed a Bulk SMS System which will also be linked to other human resource and payroll functions.
In particular, the system will transmit alerts in case of any financial
transactions such as loan applications and processing, and/or other
third party transactions. This will help to comprehensively address
any potential cases of fraud or payroll tampering.
The system will also be used to give updates on payments, interviews
and pension processing, among other HR functions. In view of the
foregoing, all the existing mobile numbers in the TMIS portal have
been removed for fresh capture and validation by Heads of Institution. Heads of Institution are, therefore, required to undertake
i. Enter afresh mobile numbers for all TSC employed teachers in
the specified section of TMIS data base.
i. Ensure that only the mobile number registered in the name of
the teacher is submitted since it will be linked to teacher’s
payroll and HR records. It will, therefore, be in the interest of
any teacher without a mobile line to immediately acquire one
for this purpose.
ii. Personally confirm the accuracy of the mobile numbers entered
into the TMIS system.
County and Sub County Directors will monitor the TMIS reports to
ensure full compliance by all institutions.
Finally, the mobile numbers for all teachers should be uploaded on
the TMIS platform by 12th February, 2019. Teachers will receive
a text notification from TSC-Kenya once the mobile number has
been submitted through TMIS.”
