WHEREAS, various NGAs, LGUs, SUCs, GOCCs, and GFIs have been granting or intending to grant CNA incentives to their employees;
WHEREAS, this Commission has consistently disallowed the grant of said CNA incentive on the ground, among other things, that the same is contrary to Republic Act (R.A.) No. 6758, otherwise known as the "Salary Standardization Law," and for lack of approval by the Office of the President;
WHEREAS, on December 27, 2005, the Office of the President issued Administrative Order (A.O.) No. 135 which authorizes the grant of CNA incentives;
WHEREAS, by virtue of said A.O. No. 135, and the subsequent issuance by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) of Budget Circular No. 2006-1 dated February 1, 2006, which prescribes the policy and guidelines on the grant of CNA incentive, there is now no legal impediment to the said grant.
WHEREAS, numerous appeals/petitions for review/requests for reconsideration for the lifting of disallowances on the grant of CNA incentive are pending before this Commission and considering that it has already reconsidered its previous adverse decision on the request filed by the Office of the Ombudsman embodied in the letter dated February 16, 2006 which is now the precedent for cases of similar nature;
WHEREAS, it has become imperative to prescribe uniform guidelines for the resolution of said cases and to delegate the evaluation and resolution of the same for expendiency.
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises, this Commission hereby resolves to prescribe the following guidelines on the resolution of the disallowances regarding the grant of CNA incentive to employees in the government service, viz:
This Resolution takes effect immediately and covers all pending appeals/petitions for review/requests for reconsideration.
