Leave Audit 2020
Towards the end of the last quarter of 2019 through the verbal directives of the Local Chief
Executive – Florencio T. Flores, Jr. the Development Management Section (formerly the Leave Administration of the HRMO) conducted an audit for the Leave credits of the employees (regular, casual, and coterminous) of the City Government of Malaybalay. The team handled both the leave administration as well as the leave audit. Initially, the audit focused their attention on C.Y 2008 – the last conduct of audit – to C.Y 2020, however, it was found out that the 2008 audit did not include the force leave but only on the correctness of the summation and differences of the applied leave and leave earned.
With the approval of the LCE, the team had to restructure the leave audit and had to consider from the first day of service of each employee to CY 2020 which made the work very tedious as the team had to make sure that each digit would either be deducted or added to correct the data on the leave earns of each employee. In February 2021, the initial findings had been submitted to the Office of the City Mayor’s Office. Such, it was forwarded to the City Human Resource Management Officer, Magnolia O. Improgo, DPA, for her comments. And on April of the same year, the final findings on the Leave Audit of 2020 had been submitted to the office of the City Mayor and duly noted by the City Administrator.
In May 2021, the Statement of Sick and Vacation Leave Credit had been finalized and reviewed. And on October 2021, the final statement had been released to the different departments with the approval of the LCE and duly noted by the City Administrator, Herculano S. Ronolo.
At the end of November of the same year, the City Government of Malaybalay Employees’ Association (CGMEA) Board of Directors raised their concerns for reconsideration to the office of the LCE that the deduction of the force leaves of each employee be considered as it was not the fault of the employees why they were not deducted on the previous years as they were dependent on the reports given by the Human Resource Management Office. It was resolved that the audit be restructured and the request of the CGMEA be considered.
Whereby, on December 2021 the restructured Statement of Sick and Vacation Leave Credit had been released and an agreement between the CGMEA and Human Resource Management Office had been sealed. On the other hand, the HRMO asked that the mayor would be the one to signify the adoption of the result wherein the LCE endorsed.
Towards the end of 2021, the audit team submitted the endorsement from the LCE and hard copies of the statement to the office of the Human Resource and Management and inputted the figures on the Human Resource Management Information System to correct the data of each employee’s leave credits.
Devolution Transition Planning (DTP) for Public Employment
Service Office (PESO)
According to Section 2 (a) of Republic Act (RA) No. 7160 or the Local Government Code of 1991 (LGC), the State shall provide for a more responsive and accountable local government structure instituted through a system of decentralization whereby local government units (LGUs) shall be given more powers, authority, responsibilities, and resources. The process of decentralization shall proceed from the National Government (NG) to the LGUs.
The DTPs cities shall comprise a narrative report with the following components: state of devolved functions, services, and facilities; phasing of full assumption of devolved functions, services, and facilities; CapDev agenda; proposed changes to OSSP; local revenue forecast and resource mobilization strategy; and performance targets for devolved functions and services.
To adhere to the order, both the DTP Committees and the Technical Working Group attended various training and seminars via zoom to discuss and to have a clear and uniform understanding as to the conduct of the plan.
The focus assigned to the City Administrator’s Office is on the Social Services specifically the Public Employment. Under this, the following annexes had been crafted and submitted: E1(Inventory of LGU Functions, Services, and Facilities for the City of Malaybalay), F1 (Phasing of Full Assumption of Devolved Functions, Services, and Facilities for the City of Malaybalay), G1 (Capacity Development Agenda for the City of Malaybalay), and K1 (Performance Monitoring Framework for the City of Malaybalay).
Moreover, proofreading of the first draft of the DTP had also been extended to the Technical Working Staff under the City Administrator’s Office.
Guidelines on the Leave Administration based on Omnibus
Rules on Leave Rule XVI and Other Pertinent Circulars
Leave laws are social legislation that had been enacted to promote the physical and mental wellness of public servants and should be responsive to times of need.
To ensure that leave policies are applied consistently and in compliance with rules of Civil Service Commission, Department of Budget and Management, and other relative agencies, the Development management section under the City Administrator’s Office, with the approval of the Local Chief Executive, has developed the following guidelines for the administration of the different types of leave. This is deliberately intended for employees of the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Malaybalay City. Moreover, these guidelines are to be used in conjunction with the appropriate policy for internal control is complementary to the CSCs thrust of humanizing the bureaucracy.
Congruent to the above statement, the objective of the formulated guidelines is to allow employees to balance their work, professional growth, and family life by taking reasonable paid or unpaid leave without regard to ethnicity, color, creed, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, veteran status, or disability.
Although leave benefits are considered a right of an employee, the LGU of Malaybalay City also has its moral responsibility to protect employees with unforeseen predicaments such as being in a state of illnesses either of themselves or members of their immediate family. Such becomes a problem when employees do not have any earned sick leave credit to be allowed to be absent from work without due deductions. Additionally, this would ensure employees that when they sever their ties with the organization, they could have privileged pay through the commutation of their terminal leave. Correspondingly, section 124 of PD 1445, as amended states that [i]t shall be the direct responsibility of the agency head to install, implement, and monitor a sound system of internal control.”
The crafted procedures and guidelines apply to all officials and employees of the LGU of Malaybalay City whose eligibility lies on the specifications provided on the type of leave applied. These measures conform to the appropriate practices of the Administration of Leave with the principles of efficiency – “doing things right,” effectiveness – “doing the right things,” and the government’s call towards quality service laid down in Republic Act 9013, and supplemented with rules adhering to the tenets of internal control.
The guideline aims to ensure that each official and employee has a uniform understanding concerning requests for and granting of leaves of absence and to guarantee that all employees have access to clear procedures regarding information, processes, and documents to submit.
To add, this addresses the following goals identified in the Vision and Mission of the LGU of Malaybalay City:
- Execute orderly, ethical, economical, efficient, and effective operations;
- Fulfill accountability obligations;
- Comply with applicable laws and regulations; and
- Safeguard resources against loss, misuse, and discrepancy.
Relative to the efficiency of the Administration of Leave of Absences, Monetization, and other pertinent issues associated with the Leave Administration, the guidelines are reiterated based on the provisions and amendments supplied by the Civil Service Commission, the Department of Budget and Management, and related agencies, augmented with rules following the principles of internal control.
Orientation on RA 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018 on
September 22 -23, 2021 via Zoom
Republic Act (RA) No. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business (EDB) Act amended the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007 to encourage competitiveness and improve the overall business environment. These amendments are aimed at providing the public with quality government service as quickly as possible while substantially reducing expense, inconvenience, and wasted time.
Broadly, RA No. 11032 requires government agencies to streamline business registration and compliance procedures. The law covers Local Government Units (LGU’s), Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCC’s), and other government offices whether in the Philippines or abroad that provide services covering business and non-business-related transactions as defined by RA 11032.
As a rule, no contact in any manner with any requesting party concerning an application or request shall be allowed. The only exceptions are (a) during the preliminary assessment of the request and (b) during the evaluation of the sufficiency of documents submitted. All officers or employees are required to accept written applications, requests, and documents or both, submitted by applicants or requesting parties. The receiving officer or employee shall then perform a preliminary assessment on the application or the request submitted and immediately inform the applicant or requesting party of the deficiency in the requirements submitted. The deficiency shall be limited to those enumerated in the Citizen’s Charter.
For simple transactions, the processing time shall not be longer than 3 working days. For complex transactions, 7 working days. For activities that pose danger to public health, public morals, public safety, public policy, and highly technical transactions, 20 working days. And, for applications or requests for a license, clearance, permit, certification, or authorization requiring the approval of the local Sangguniang Panlungsod is 45 working days which can be extended for another 20 days.
The Citizen’s Charter may provide for a different processing time if it will not be longer than what is prescribed by the EDB Act. The law now requires that the denial of the application be explained in writing stating the name of the person who denied the same and the grounds upon which denial is based.
Covered agencies and offices are required to develop electronic versions of licenses, clearances, permits, certifications, or authorizations. These electronic versions shall have the same level of authority as hard copies and may be printed by the applicants or requesting parties. Provided that the applicant or the requesting party has: (a) submitted complete documentary requirements and (b) paid all the required fees, the failure of the government agency or office to approve or disapprove the original application or request within the prescribed processing time shall be deemed an approval of the concerned office or agency.
LGU’s are required to have a single or unified business application form that consolidates all information of applicants or requesting parties by various local government departments. Under the law, they are now required to have Business One-Stop Shops (BOSS), which are one-stop business facilitation offices for the city or municipality’s business permitting and licensing services as well as to receive and process manual and/or electronic submissions.
Any person who performs or causes to perform the following has violated the Act: (a) Refusal to accept an application or request with complete requirements without due cause; (b) Imposition of additional requirements or fees other than those required in the Citizen’s Charter; (c) Failure to give the applicant or requesting party written notice of disapproval; (d) Failure to render government service within prescribed processing time; (e) Failure to attend to applicants or requesting parties who are within their premises before the end of official working hours and during lunch break; (f) Failure or refusal to issue official receipts; and (g) Fixing and/or collusion with fixers.
Criminal liability will also be incurred by those who commit bribery, extortion, or when a violation was done deliberately and maliciously to solicit favor in cash or kind. While, administrative jurisdiction is vested in the Civil Service Commission (CSC) or Office of the Ombudsman, as determined by appropriate laws.
