NEGROS Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. designated Provincial Administrator Enrique Pinongan as chairman of the implementation committee that will oversee the Capitol reorganization set to take effect on June 1.
Pinongan said the reorganization will be implemented gradually and that the committee will send out notices of abolition to the affected offices.
The committee will seek funds for the newly-created positions, he added.
Pinongan added that employees whose jobs were abolished will be given priority to apply for the new positions, if qualified. To follow are the contractual workers and outsiders.
There will also be an implementation of “transfer in” and “transfer out” wherein employees who are qualified for new positions will be transferred.
The Capitol created 372 new positions, which needs P127.495 million while 106 positions were abolished, which costs P35.114 million.
The Provincial Veterinary Office has the most number of new jobs created at 89 followed by the Governor’s Office with 71, and the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist with 38. The Provincial Cooperative Office has the most number of abolished jobs at 15.
Of the new positions, 353 are under the General Fund and will cost P121.649 million while 19 are under the Economic Enterprise Development Division (EEDD) and will cost P5.846 million.
Of the 106 positions to be abolished, 91 are under the General Fund and 15, under the EEDD. The abolition will cost P31.474 million and P3.64 million, respectively.
