The Makati City government is set to release on Monday P10,000 each to all regular, casual, and contractual city employees as their service recognition incentive (SRI).
Mayor Abigail Binay said following President Rodrigo Duterte’s Administrative Order No. 45 authorizing the grant of said incentive, she immediately requested the Sangguniang Panlungsod to enact an appropriation ordinance authorizing the release of SRI for fiscal year 2021.
“We are glad that Makati was able to satisfy the criteria and conditions to be eligible for the grant of SRI for 2021. It is a well-deserved reward for the tireless dedication of our employees in rendering public service to our Proud Makatizens, undaunted by these challenging times we live in,” Binay said.
The city chief executive said Makati was the only local government unit in Metro Manila that satisfied the eligibility criteria set under DILG-DBM Joint Memorandum Circular 2021-01. These include being a consistent passer of the Good Financial Housekeeping (GFH) from FY 2014 up to the most recent assessment period, as of Nov. 5, 2021 (20 points).
The rest of the scoring system used in the assessment of LGUs include Updated Citizen’s Charter (10 points), Sustained Compliance with Audit Findings (10 points), and Performance Rating System Consistent with SPMS (10 points).
In a special session held December 29, the Sangguniang Panglungsod approved on final reading City Ordinance No. 2021-289 appropriating the amount of P82.82 million for the grant of SRI of not more than P10,000 each to all regular, casual, and contractual employees of the city government, pursuant to Administrative Order No. 45.
