DBM affirms DOLE’s qualifying for grant of performance-based bonus
Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday congratulated all the men and women of the DOLE after the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) affirmed that the Department was qualified for the grant of the Performance-based Bonus (PBB) for 2013.
“I congratulate all the DOLE employees for their hard work. The affirmation by the DBM and the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring Information and Reporting Systems of the DOLE’s qualification for the grant is quite an achievement we should all be proud of. It shall also inspire us to continue our exemplary work in public service and be a model to other public servants,” said Baldoz.
Balodz, citing a letter of DBM Secretary Florencio S. Abad said that the review of the DOLE’s performance by the Administrative Order 25 Technical Working Group showed that the DOLE has satisfied all the criteria for the top-up bonus.
Abad asked Baldoz to confirm with the DBM’s Organization, Position Classification, and Compensation Bureau the final approval of the DOLE’s ranking and rating report.
He also reminded the DOLE that as part of the PBB process, it must publish in its website the agency’s MFO Accountability Report Card; Management Accountability Report Card; and Priority Program Accountability Report Card.
“We sincerely hope that the PBB contributes to your agency’s organizational and employee performance and lead to concrete and visible improvements in the delivery of goods and services to the public,” Abad wrote to Baldoz.
The PBB, based on Executive Order No. 80, seeks to recognize and reward agencies and employees for exemplary performance in government.
It covers all state workers, to include workers in government-owned and controlled corporations and state universities and colleges.
Under the PBB, employees ranked as “best” in a best-performing office are entitled to receive as much as P35,000 in bonuses. Employees who got a “better” ranking will get P20,000, while those ranked “good” will receive P10,000.
Baldoz said that awarding of bonuses to deserving employees and institutions is in line with the President Benigno S. Aquino III’s directive to harmonize all performance-based management systems in government.
“The PBB is one of the components of the administration of the President Benigno S. Aquino III’s Performance-Based Incentive System (PBIS), a program that recognizes and rewards exemplary performance in government,” Baldoz said.
