The Authority will conduct regular follow-up to ensure that all employees of federal ministries and entities have signed and delivered their contracts, through monthly monitoring the number of signed contracts downloaded into BAYANATI System, and submitting periodic reports to the Ministerial Services Council.

The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources will provide every support to any federal ministry or authority to facilitate coordination regarding this issue.
