Civil service eligibility granted to brgy officials-A A +A
Friday, October 5, 2012
THE Civil Service Commission (CSC) has announced the availment of Barangay Official Eligibility (BOE) upon completion of the barangay official’s term of office.
CSC Regional Director Rodolfo Encajonado said Resolution 1200865 effective August 1, 2012 had revised the policies on service requirement for the grant of BOE instead of the aggregate five-year requirement.
Encajonado said the adoption of the policy stemmed from the government’s stand as an act of goodwill by the government for services of barangay officials to the community.
The term of office for elected barangay officials refers to the term specified by the prevailing law while for appointive barangay officials, term of office refers to the continuous number of years of satisfactory service rendered from the time of appointment, which must correspond to the number of years covering the term of office of the appointing village chief and may include services rendered under previous appointment.
In cases where the services rendered by the elected or appointed barangay official falls short as to the completion of term of office, his or her application will still be considered provided that the deficiency is not more than 15 days.
Appointive barangay officials like barangay treasurer or barangay secretary who do not meet the number of years of service corresponding to the term of office of the appointing village chief for more than 15 days may include services rendered under previous appointment of similar capacity in the same barangay only.
Encajonado also said that the filing of application for BOE grant is ongoing for elective and appointive barangay officials who have completed their term of office before August 1, 2012, or within two years from the said date, or until August 1, 2014.
The grant of BOE to elected barangay officials shall be considered a privilege and entitlement belongs exclusively to the duly elected barangay official.
Exempted from the BOE grant are appointive barangay officials who are related to the appointing village chief up to the fourth degree of affinity or consanguinity.
