Before we go into the nitty gritty of the steps involved in downloading GHRIS Payslip on the GHRIS Portal / GHRIS System. We need to lay out the basics of GHRIS as a Government system in Kenya.

The Government of Kenya embarked on development of this Government Human Resource Information System (GHRIS) Portal whose aim is to address all its Human Resource (HR) needs. GHRIS System is designed in-house by Government Information Communication Technology Officers in collaboration with Human Resource Officers.

GHRIS System is expected to interface with other existing and future systems like IFMIS, G-Pay, IRMIS and IPPD. Users of GHRIS are Government MDAs, Employees, and the Public who will benefit from a centralized readily accessible, efficient and transparent system.

Now that we have covered the above and have an in depth understanding of what GHRIS is and what is means, we can now dive into the steps on How To Download GHRIS Payslip in Kenya. GHRIS users operate from various locations within and outside the country (MDA Headquarters and Counties).

GHRIS can be accessed by Government of Kenya employees by use of Local Area Networks, Wide Area Networks, Web, Mobile and any other future technologies. This means, most of the HR Functions will be available to all public servants using this Portal. Staff will have an opportunity to update their information periodically and to access Human Resource updates.
