CSC accreditation of LGUs nearly complete
by Dan B. Codamon
LAGAWE,Ifugao (16 October) -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) here is nearly through with the accreditation of Local Government Units (LGUs) in terms of their autonomy to act on permanent appointments of their employees.
CSC Field Officer Atty. Allyson Locano disclosed recently that out of the 11 municipalities of the province, 10 were already given accreditation except for the municipality of Mayoyao which does not have a human resource management office(HRMO).He, however, assured that all will be accomplished before the year ends.
The accreditation program of the CSC aims to give power to the LGUs through their Human Resource Management Office to process and act on final appointments of employees hired by them without necessarily going first to the CSC Office in the capital town.
The system is expected to facilitate the hiring and employment by LGUs of their employees at their level and no longer need to constantly consult the CSC for their advice and guidance entailing much time, effort and expenses.
It has been noted that with the traditional practice, applicants have to go back and forth to the CSC Office in Lagawe to process and follow-up their applications.
The accreditation is given after the personnel of the LGU’s HRMO have undergone the proper training and orientation on appointment processing and relative matters provided by the CSC.
With the accreditation, the only role of the CSC is to audit and review the appointments made by the LGUs whether they complied with the requirements and to render technical assistance if needed.
Meanwhile, Attorney Locano bared that his office has made arrangement with the different government offices in the province that finalized their future plans of activities to improve the civil service workforce.
These activities include a weekly physical fitness program, tree planting every October of the year at the Centennial Forest, medical-dental outreach to the depressed communities and information, education, communication on the CSC ban during the forthcoming 2007 national and local election.
