PBBM orders revamp in Human Resource, promotion boards


President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has ordered the reconstitution of the Office of the President (OP) Human Resource Merit Promotion and Selection Board (HRMPSB) for first and second level career positions.

The President also ordered the reconstitution of the OP Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (OP-PRAISE) Committee.

Under Memorandum Order No. 24 signed by Executive Secretary Lucas P. Bersamin on May 2, the OP-HRMPSB will now be chaired by the Deputy Executive Secretary for Finance and Administration and vice-chaired by the Deputy Executive Secretary for Legal Affairs.

Members of the OP-HRMPSB are the Deputy Executive Secretary for General Administration; Deputy Executive Secretary for Support Services and Auxiliaries; two representatives from the Office of the Executive Secretary; and the Head of the Human Resource Management Office.

One representative each from the OP Employees’ Network for first level and second level positions are also members of the OP-HRMPSB along with the head of office “where the vacancy exists.”

The Human Resource Management Office (HRMO) will serve as secretariat to the OP-HRMPSB.

On the other hand, Memorandum Order No. 25, also signed by Secretary Bersamin, reconstituted the OP-PRAISE Committee to be chaired by the Deputy Executive Secretary for Finance and Administration with members from different offices.

The members are a representative from the Office of the Executive Secretary; heads of the HRMO, Legal Office, Finance Office and Technical Services Office; a representative for 3rd level positions to be assigned by the Executive Secretary; a representative for 2nd level positions; and an alternate representative for 2nd level positions.

A representative for 1st level positions and alternate representative for 1st level positions are also part of the OP-PRAISE Committee. The HRMO is mandated to provide secretariat and administrative support to the Committee. PND
