Cordillera execs briefed on performance incentives-A A +A
Monday, August 6, 2012
CORDILLERA regional executives were recently briefed on the Strategic Performance Management System and Executive Order 80 or the Performance Based Incentive (PBI) System for Government Employees.
The briefing, which was in line with the Cordillera Association of Regional Executives (Care) lecture series for its members, aimed to update the executives on the adoption of the PBI system from the current incentive system, which is generally characterized by across the board bonuses given uniformly to all civil servants.
Civil Service Commission (CSC) Regional Director Fernando Porio and Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Regional Director Liza Fangsilat, who were resource speakers, explained that the new system aims to motivate higher performance and greater accountability in the public sector and ensure the accomplishments and targets set in Executive Order 43-Pursuing our Contract with the Filipino people, and the Philippine Development Plan 2011-2016.
It harmonized, integrated and simplified the existing systems like the current Organizational Performance Indicator Framework used by DBM to measure agency performance, and the Strategic Performance Management System of the CSC to link individual performance to organizational performance, and the Results-Based Performance Monitoring System.
The PBI system shall be based on the performance of the department, bureau or delivery units and of the individual employees. The scheme provides for three performance categories- best, better and good bureaus.
For Best Bureau category, best performer gets Performance Based Bonus (PBB) of P35,000; better performer - P20,000; and good performer - P10,000.
For Better Bureau category, the best performer gets P25,000; better performer - P13,500; and good perfumer - P7,000.
Under the Good Bureau category, best performer gets P15,000; better performer - P10,000; and good performer - P5,000.
Bureaus and individuals who receive a Below Satisfactory performance rating will not qualify for the PBB.
As one of the highlights of his 2012 State of the Nation Address, President Benigno Aquino III said this new PBI where bonuses are based on agencies’ abilities to meet their annual targets and that employees hold on the keys to their advancement based on their performance, and which will be implemented this year, will boost the morale of the civil servants.
This, he said, is in addition to across the board Christmas bonus. (Helen R. Tibaldo)
