GOVERNMENT officials will now have their deserving awards in the name of public service.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) will soon grant eligibility to government officials of the country through Republic Act (RA) 10156.

The RA 10156 is an act conferring civil service eligibility to members of the Provincial Board, City Council, and Municipal Council.


Eligibility of a career service professional will be given to a government official who served for nine years in office provided he must be a bachelor’s degree holder.

Sub–professional eligibility, on the other hand, will be granted to government officials who served for six years with at least 72 units earned.

La Trinidad Councilor Jim Botiwey said the act would provide a chance for the officials who wanted to remain in service under the government even after their terms. He further said the act is an advantage to government officials because they deserve the eligibility.

Botiwey added in serving the government, they learned a lot through community immersion. He said he learned much on their functions as government officials. He also gained knowledge on the different government procedures.

The professional eligibility is a benefit to those who served longer in the government. “The longer you work, the deeper your knowledge,” Botiwey said.

He said the act is still on the process of acquiring its implementing rules and regulation on how to implement the RA 10156.

The act was approved by the President Benigno Aquino III last December 20, 2011.
