The government has streamlined the process of accessing or generating GHRIS payslips via GHRIS for all government employees nationwide, through The Ministry of State for Public Service.


  • UHR – Unified Human Resource
  • GHRIS – Government Human Resource Information System
  • Ministry of State for Public Service (MSPS)
  • Integrated Payroll & Personnel Database (IPPD)

To access UHR or GHRIS payslips, you simply need to log in to the portal using your government employee credentials, which then allows you to access your current and past payslips.

What is GHRIS?

The GHRIS is a system developed by the Government of Kenya to provide a centralized, web-based, self-service information system for managing all Human Resource (HR) aspects in the government.

  • Counties (both Executive and Assembly)

On the GHRIS portal, government employees can download their payslips, view their employment records, and access other HR-related services.

The system interfaces with other existing platforms, including IFMIS, G-PAY and IPPD.
