CSC sheds light on issue of third level career position

Butuan City (1 May) -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has clarified that career positions in the third level comprises only those in the Career Executive Service (CES) as enumerated in the 1987 Administrative Code, all of whom are appointed by the President.

In Resolution No. 100623, the CSC sought to end confusion on the scope of the third level by declaring that the third level or CES shall only cover the positions of Undersecretary, Assistant Secretary, Bureau Director, Assistant Bureau Director, Regional Director, Assistant Regional Director, Chief of Department Service and other officers of equivalent rank as may be identified by the Career Executive Service Board (CESB), all of whom are appointed by the President.

It further stated that executive and managerial positions in the career service other than the aforementioned shall belong to the second level of government.

In support of its position, the CSC cited precedent Supreme Court (SC) decisions clearly stating that only presidential appointees belong to the CES or third level of government, most recent of which is the case of National Transmission Corporation vs. Venusto Hamoy, Jr. (G.R. No. 179255) promulgated on April 2, 2009. In the said case, the High Court ruled that the position of respondent Hamoy as Vice President for Visayas-Mindanao Operations and Maintenance belongs to the second level.

Under the implementing rules of the 1987 Administrative Code (Executive Order No. 292), appointments in the career service are classified into three levels. The first level includes clerical, trades, crafts and custodial service positions in a non-supervisory or supervisory capacity requiring less than fours years of collegiate studies. The second level covers professional, technical and scientific positions which involve professional, technical or scientific work in a non-supervisory or supervisory capacity, and requires at least four years of collegiate work up to Division Chief level. The third level covers positions in the CES. (CSC-13/PIA-Caraga) [top]
