18 Jan

The 3rd tranche salary increase for the employees of the Provincial Government of Cagayan (PGC) took effect this January 1, 2012 under the latest Salary Standardization Law (SSL) and pursuant to Local Budget Circular No. 97 implementing Executive Order No. 40 and Appropriation Ordinance No. 25-2011.
The PGC employees have received their first payroll for the year with the necessary salary adjustments based on their Notice of Salary Adjustments (NOSA) distributed by the Provincial Human Resource Management and Development Office (PHRMDO) early this year. According to Mila Gannaban, Assistant HRMDO, some 1,202 permanent employees already received their NOSA, so with the 17 co-terminous personnel and 15 elective officials of PGC. “The salary adjustments of the 519 casual PGC employees are already incorporated in their daily wages as seen in their new appointments for this year,” she added.
According to the Provincial Budget Office, the funding requirement for the 3rd phase of the salary increase was already incorporated in the CY 2012 Executive Budget in accordance with Department of Budget and Management LBC No. 97. Based on their report, a total of P343,233,060 was allotted for the 3rd tranche increase of permanent and casual employees from the General Fund. A total of P16,495,863 for the salary increase will be sourced from the Economic Enterprise Fund.
The salary increase of the PGC employees and other local government employees is part of the four-tranche increase in pay of government personnel. The first tranche started January 2010.
The implementation of the 3rd tranche salary adjustment provides differential increase in the salaries of government employees based on their salary grade.
According to Clarita Tamo, a permanent employee who has rendered 28 years of service in PGC, the salary increase is very beneficial to employees. “Although, it is only a minimal increase for some employees, the salary adjustment is still very helpful in our daily personal expenses and other needs of the family,” she added.
