Pangan: An executive discretion

At Close Range

EXECUTIVE order No, 105 Series of 2018 of Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo aimed to provide the grant of an efficiency and achievement incentive (EAI).

In its premises/whereases, it stated that the human resources are the local government units’ (LGU's) most important asset which play a vital role in performing the essential task of delivering quality public service.
