LINGAYEN, Pangasinan—The provincial board led by Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim, Jr. approved on October 23 an ordinance that defined the duties, functions and responsibilities of the Personnel Selection Board (PSB) in the provincial government of Pangasinan.

The newly-approved Provincial Ordinance No 18-2017 which was authored by Board Member Generoso D. Tulagan, Jr who chairs the Committees on Human Resources and Development, Labor and Employment Concerns, stipulated that “Section 80 of RA 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, provides that a Personnel Selection Board must be established in every province to assist the local chief executive in the judicious and objective selection of personnel for employment as well as for promotion and in the formulation of such policies as would contribute to employee welfare.”

It can be recalled that on July 11 last year, the provincial board approved Provincial Resolution No. 332-2016 which determined the membership of the PSB as provided for under RA 7160.

As such, in compliance to the provisions of Civil Service Commission Memorandum Circular No. 3, S-2001, the duties functions and responsibilities was therefore defined by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan under several sections which embodied the general provision; duties, functions and responsibilities; changes in the composition; meetings; repealing clause; and effectivity clause.

Amendment was then included in Section 5 that noted: “Regular meetings of the Board shall be held en banc at least monthly at the SP Session Hall. Special Meetings may be held upon the request of the Department/Office Head and upon the approval of the Governor. No Board Meetings shall be held unless there is a quorum of three which include the Chairman or his representative and two other members of the Board.”

Meanwhile, Human Resources Management and Development Officer Janette C. Asis who provided additional insights on the matter disclosed that the ordinance is of utmost importance to retain the provincial government’s Level 2 status on PRIME-HRM which stands for Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management.

With this, a two-day revalidation assessment was conducted by the CSC Regional Office on October 17 and 18. The program is a mechanism to support the attainment of the CSC vision of becoming a Center of Excellence for Human Resource and Organization Development.

As a backgrounder, PRIME-HRM assesses the agency’s human resource management competencies, systems, and practices toward HR excellence. The program presents a more progressive system of assessment as it entails greater engagement not just of the human resource management officer (HRMO) but also of the officials and the rank-and-file employees of the agency.

Asis said that as of present, there are close to 6,000 employees of the provincial government to include permanent, casual and job order workers. (Ruby R. Bernardino)
