2021/2023 DECLARATION OF INCOME, ASSETS AND LIABILITIES (DIALS)
Section 26 27 of the Public Officer Ethics Act (POEA) requires all public officers to declare their Income, Assets and Liabilities (IAL) after every two years.
To this end, all TSC employees are expected to make their Declaration by 31st December 2023. Teachers who have been employed for less than two years will be expected to make their initial declarations.
In order to enhance efficiency, the Commission introduced an online declaration platform for this purpose.
Each teacher is expected to fill an online Declaration following steps outlined in the DIALS Instruction Manual.
The system has been customized to facilitate the initial declaration by newly employed teachers.
Accordingly, the Declaration Form will be filled and submitted by accessing the Teachers Online Portal through TSC Online Wealth Declaration Portal.
The portal can be accessed using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone.
A do-it-yourself instruction manual has been provided and is available on the TSC website https:/ [teachersonline.tsc.go.ke] under the Download Manual link to guide you in making the declaration.
You are also required to monitor the declaration progress in your respective schools and report on non-compliance as reflected in Part B of the Instruction Manual by 31ST December 2023.
Further, you are required to ensure that all your staff members are on boarded in the TMIS platform so as to access the online portal.
You are further directed to note that: –
(a) All teachers employed by the Commission are required to declare their Income, Assets, and liabilities including teachers on any kind of leave, Interdiction, Suspension or authorized absence from duty.
(b) Intern teachers are not expected to declare their Income, Assets, and Liabilities.
(c) Under the Public Officer Ethics Act any Public Officer who fails to submit a declaration or gives false or misleading information will be liable to a fine of Ksh. 1,000,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year or both upon conviction. Further, such teachers may be subjected to administrative or disciplinary action as per the TSC Administrative Procedures on DIALs.
(d) The Declaration can only be accessed by individuals who have activated their official email @mwalimu.tsc.go.ke email address. This will be vital for usercredibility, setting, accessing, and resetting individual passwords for the Declaration as applicable.
(e) A copy of the submitted declaration will be sent automatically to the teacher’s email for reference and record.
(f) Please ensure the information filled is accurate and that teachers press the SUBMIT button before logging out and that you receive a copy of the duly filled DIALs on your email as confirmation of your submission. The Commission will not accept any hard copy of the DIALS forms.
(g) All sections of the declaration must be filled appropriately. Incomplete declaration forms will be rejected by the system.
Teachers are encouraged to make their Declarations early to avoid last minute rush and that may lead to system congestion or downtime.
The system has been activated with effect from 1st November, 2023 and will automatically close on 31st December, 2023 at midnight. Any submission made after this date will not go through.
The Guidelines for the Declarations are available on the TSC Website for your reference.
