It’s confirmed.

Employees of the Cagayan State University are entitled to receive their Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) for 2015 due to the collective exemplary performance of the institution along good governance conditions and its four major final outputs: higher education services, advanced education services, research services and extension and training services.

This developed after the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) issued on May 11, 2016 the Special Allotment Release Order (SARO) to cover the payout of the PBB 2015 of CSU faculty members and administrative personnel amounting to P8,298,400.

Signed by Ms. Isabel C. Taguinod, regional director of DBM-02, the SARO came following the endorsement of the AO25 Technical Working Group, the inter-agency taskforce (IATF) mandated to implement the PBB among government agencies. The taskforce includes DBM, Commission on Higher Education, Commission on Audit, Civil Service Commission and Development Academy of the Philippines.

This is the third time CSU was granted eligibility to receive PBB. The first was in 2013, and second in 2014.

Employees will be receiving as much as P35,000 for those ranked as best employees from best delivery units (campus). Other employees will receive different amounts of bonus based on their individual rating and ranking of the campuses they belong and on the IATF Memorandum Circular 2015-01.

In best campuses, the better employees receive P20,000 while the good performers get P10,000. Employees rated best, better and good performers in campuses ranked better will be paid P25,000, P13,500 and P7,000, respectively.

In campuses ranked good, qualified personnel will enjoy P15,000 (best performer), P10,000 (better performer), and P5,000 (good performer).

In the forced ranking of delivery units done in January this year following the university’s approved forced ranking guidelines, CSU Sanchez Mira emerged as the best campus, CSU Carig and CSU Andrews as better campuses, and the rest—Lal-lo, Lasam, Piat and Gonzaga, in that order—good campuses.

Based on the approved Form 1.0 (considered as PBB payroll) of the University, 820 employees are entitled to receive the bonus, which is apart from the 13th and 14th month pay, given this month and in November in full, respectively.

Under the guidelines, only permanent and casual employees are entitled to receive PBB. Retirees and those holding permanent positions who have served the government for at least three months also get bonus but on pro-rata basis.

The complete list of PBB recipients is published in the Transparency Seal of the University, which can be found in the right most side of the home page of this website.

PBB is one of the components of the Aquino administration’s performance-based incentive system (PBIS), which recognizes and rewards exemplary performance in government.

Under the PBIS, qualified agencies that submitted all compliance reports on time would be assessed, provided that they meet at least 90 percent of their targets for the year.

Agencies are also required to fulfill all the good governance conditions set by the IATF on the Harmonization of the National Government Performance Monitoring, Information and Reporting Systems.
