CSC: Revised Omnibus Rules On Appointment’s Implementation Starts

CSC Announces ORAOHRA’s Taking Into Effect

CSC – The Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced that the revised ORAOHRA is taking effect starting August 26, 2018.

The previous version of the Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions or ORAOHRA has been revised. It was on June 16, 2017 when the old version was promulgated.

Based on a post on the official website of CSC, the decision to revise it is in line with the stakeholders’ feedback. The CSC decided to revise it to assure that its provisions do not violate other laws and administrative issuances.

Reportedly, it was on August 26, 2018 when the implementation of the revised ORAOHRA began.

Civil Service Commission

Based on the copy of resolution posted on CSC’s website, here are some of the important points in the revision of the ORAOHRA:

  • CSC’s Human Resource Merit Promotion and Selection Board (HRMPSB) Now “Assistorial” from “Recommendatory”
  • Agencies should make known the vacant positions, the qualification standards, and the item numbers
  • Agencies should hand in a copy of their vacant positions to a CSC office
  • Shari’a Bar Examination 2014 passers are eligible for appointment to 1st and 2nd level government position
  • The passers of the Shari’a Bar Examination who passed before January 2014 are eligible for appointment to first level positions.

Based on the report, aside from the aforementioned changes, the following are accepted as proofs of eligibility for appointment.

Certificate of Registration, Professional License, or Rating Report from:

  • Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA)
  • Supreme Court
  • Professional Regulation Commission (PRC)

The appointment surrounds the positions that do not involve the practice of one’s profession. Bar and Board exam passers are granted civil service eligibility. Meanwhile, based on the resolution, the appointment to positions requires a valid professional license.

  1. Sana lang po kapag more than 10 years na sa service e may promotion kahit walang sub prof dedicated po talaga sa work isa po ako UW1 grade 1 na maging CTI n ngaun sana gang retirement d kami mtangal thanks and more power po sa inyo

    • hindi na po ba talaga pwedeng asahan ang seniority, sa agensiya po namin mas marami na ang 15 to 20 years in service pero ang napromote un 5 years pa lang in service. pare-pareho naman silang qualified.

  2. last rating period would mean one rating period only say July-DEc.? pls clarify. this is in relation to the application for promotion of an employee. That after 6 months (one rating period) he/she can apply for promotion

  3. I am now 29 yrs. and 6 mos. in service, dedicated and committed to my job, ist time that i got a Satisfactory Rate in my IPCR, to which i refused to sign , but with the explanation of HR people that it would not affect my promotion i was forced to sign it. Di ko matanggap na ang aming hepe eh ganoon na lang galit sa akin personal ang galit niya sa akin. Na wala akong kaalam- alam. As per our HR sign ko na lang daw kc it would not affect my promotion, cause 1 sem. lang naman daw at bawi na lang daw ako sa susunod. I myself until now i could not sleep para akong nabangungot. I was force to sign para i was na lang din sa gulo na d ko talaga gusto.Yong against sa aking personal well ang nagawa kong pagpirma.Is it true with the HR explanation? We have our new OIC now. thank you.
