Dagdag-sahod sa gobyerno suportado ng DBM

MANILA, Philippines – TINIYAK ng Department of Budget and Management (DBM) na matatapos sa unang bahagi ng taon ang “comprehensive study” ukol sa potensiyal na salary adjustment para sa mga manggagawa sa gobyerno.

Sinabi ni Budget Secretary Mina Pangandamanan, layon ng inisyatiba ang tiyakin ang “competitive at equitable compensation package” para sa government workers.

Pinangungunahan ng DBM at Governance Commission for Government-Owned or -Controlled Corporations (GCG), ang Compensation and Benefits Study ang susuri sa iba’t ibang aspeto ng kasalukuyang compensation system, kabilang na ang sahod, benepisyo at allowance, para matukoy ang mga lugar na kalangang pagbutihin.

“We recognize that the rising cost of the basic commodities and services in the country highlights the need to review the current state of compensation of government employees,” ayon sa kalihim.

“It is for this reason that the DBM and the GCG engaged the services of a consultancy firm this year to conduct a Compensation and Benefits Study in the Public Sector with the end in view of setting a competitive, financially sustainable, and equitable compensation package for government personnel,” aniya pa rin.

“The proposed compensation adjustment must be within the government’s financial capacity and should consider not only the inflation rates and cost of living adjustments, but also standard market practices to ensure that working in government remains desirable and comparable to working in the private sector,” ayon naman sa departamento.

Ani Pangandaman, ang resulta ng pag-aaral ay magsisilbi bilang basehan para sa paggawa ng mahalaga at kinakailangang pagbabago sa Total Compensation Framework ng civilian government personnel para matiyak ang patas at napapanahon na salary adjustment para sa government workers.

“Our civil servants are the backbones of our nation, and it’s our priority to provide them with a fair and motivating compensation system. This study marks a crucial step towards a civil service that is not only efficient and productive but also just and rewarding,” ang pahayag ng Kalihim.

“As we anticipate the completion of this pivotal compensation and benefit study, our resolve remains firm: To uphold the dignity of public service by ensuring our civil servants are rewarded in a manner that truly reflects their worth to the nation,” dagdag na wika niya.

Ang resulta ng pag-aaral ay gagamitin para gawing pulido at itaas ang kompensasyon ng civilian government personnel.

“Such improvements and enhancements may be in the form of salary increases, adjustment in the rate of benefits and allowances, rationalization of benefits, or fine tuning of the current Total Compensation Framework of government,” ang tinuran ng DBM.

Ang halaga para sa implementasyon ng compensation adjustment, ay huhugutin mula sa ‘available appropriations’ sa ilalim ng Fiscal Year 2024 General Appropriations at sa mga sumusunod na annual appropriations. Kris Jose
