The Department of Labor and Employment was rated compliant on the Transparency Seal (TS) requirements based on the results of validation by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring, Information and Reporting Systems.
The Transparency Seal, prominently displayed on the main page of the website of government agencies, contains the agency’s mandates and functions, names of its officials with their position and designation, and contact information.
The task force is mandated to prescribe the conditions on eligibility and procedures for the grant of Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) created by virtue of Malacañang Administrative Order No. 25, series of 2011.
The TS also contains the DBM-approved budget and corresponding targets for FY 2016; budget and financial accountability reports.
The FY 2016 major programs and projects categorized in accordance with the five key result areas under Executive Order No. 43 can also be found at the TS, including the program/project beneficiaries as identified in the applicable special provisions; status of implementation, evaluation and/or assessment reports.
For optimum transparency, the agency’s FY 2016 Annual Procurement Plan; Quality Management System (QMS) International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Certification for at least one core process by any international certifying body can be also found at the TS section.
The system of ranking the agency’s delivery units is also included in the TS. The online publication of initial agency reports is one way of enabling the public to access government information for greater transparency.
The validation of other PBB requirements for CY 2016 is still in progress.
