Frequently Asked Questions
Primer on the Gov't Rationalization Program

7. What are the myths and truths about the Program?

Myth #1: The Rationalization Program is about eliminating jobs to cut the budget deficit.

The truth is, the Program aims to improve government effectiveness by doing and spending on the right things, improving efficiency by eliminating overlaps/duplication, and improving accountability for performance. The savings that may be generated from the effort would also be retained in the departments/agencies to fund additional maintenance and other operating expenditures for their operations.

In some cases, the Rationalization Program may result in the redeployment of government personnel from redundant to vital functions.

Myth #2: The Rationalization Program is an Early Retirement Program for all.

The truth is, only those whose functions have been declared redundant will be given the option to avail of retirement/separation benefits with applicable incentives, if they choose not to remain in government service and be placed to other agencies.
