Philippines: DBM Approves Rationalization Plan of 7 Gov't Agencies; Others Still Pending

The Department of Budget and Management has already approved the Rationalization Plan of seven government agencies.

 

The seven agencies include the Office of the President, the Office of the Vice President, the Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Budget and Management; Department of Science and Technology; Department of Tourism and the Civil Service Commission.

 

The applications of the rest of the agencies are still pending at the Department of Budget and Management for approval.

 

This was learned yesterday by the Philippine Information Agency after it made a call to the DBM upon the request of the Department of Labor and Employment Region 8, the chairman of this year's celebration of the 111th Philippine Independence Day celebration.

 

DOLE8 said that the agencies which have not yet rationalized have been ordered to temporarily fill up vacant plantilla positions from among the displaced workers and their dependents which are registered with DOLE.

 

The directive was contained in the Executive Order 782 signed by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in order institute measures to assist workers affected by the current financial crisis.

 

The agencies have up to June 1 to submit the number of jobs that will be generated from each one of them. This is to help minimize the impact of the current global financial crisis which is already being felt through the retrenchment of workers.

 

The awarding of appointments and contracts is one of the highlights in this year's Independence Day Celebration, DOLE 8 said.
