On Capitol’s Total Reorganization: Consultancy Firm to Submit Recommendation this Month
CPRM Consultancy, the company hired by the Provincial Capitol to study the planned total reorganization for its 2,300 employees, is expected to submit its recommendation this April, Provincial Administrator Enrique Pinongan said yesterday.
Pinongan said the CPRM will make recommendations on which employee will be re-assigned to which office or department, so that the result will be better delivery of services at the Provincial Capitol.
CPRM will submit its recommendations to the Committee on Total Reorganization, which was created by Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. through an executive order, Pinongan added.
The said committee is chaired by Board Member Miller Serondo, chairman of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) Committee on Personnel and Human Resource, and will be composed of Pinongan, assistant provincial legal officer Mary Ann Lamis, provincial accountant Lucille Pines, Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado Jr., and consultant Roy Balicas as members, Pinongan said.
After studying and deliberating on the recommendations of CPRM, the committee will submit them to the governor for decision, he said.
If the governor is amenable to the said recommendations, he will submit it to the SP for approval, Pinongan said.
Once the SP approves it, the reorganization will take effect, he added.
After that, the governor will then create a Placement Committee to "take charge in placing the right man for the right position," Pinongan said.
He said CPRM had informed the governor of the initial results of the study.
Marañon earlier said "not more than 10 percent" of the total number of Provincial Capitol employees will be affected, since there will be "sections" that will be abolished or merged.
But those who will be retrenched can avail of early retirement, he added.
In September last year, the Provincial Capitol hired Quezon City-based CPRM Consultants Inc., for a fee of almost P1.6 million, to conduct an assessment of the functions of Capitol departments and employees.
CPRM Consultants conducted a study for four months, or from September to December last year.
The purpose of a total reorganization is to have a more effective, efficient and economical bureaucracy through streamlining, Pinongan explained.* (DBDangcalan)
