President Rodrigo Duterte has authorised the granting of a service recognition incentive (SRI) of up to P10,000 each for qualified employees of the national government.

In Administrative Order no. 19, signed on December 2, Duterte said the incentive will be given to deserving government employees to recognise their “collective and unceasing participation in and invaluable contribution to the administration’s continuing efforts toward the establishment of streamlined government processes and more responsive delivery of public services.”

Those qualified for the incentives include civilian personnel in national government agencies, including those in state universities and colleges, and government-owned or controlled corporations, occupying regular, contractual or casual positions, and military personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines under the Department of National Defense.

Also qualified to receive the incentive are uniformed personnel of the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology under the Department of the Interior and Local government, the Bureau of Corrections under the Department of Justice, the Philippine Coast Guard under the Department of Transportation, and the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority under the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The grant of the incentive shall be subject to following conditions: civilian personnel occupying regular, contractual, or casual positions; personnel still in the government service as of November 30, and personnel who have rendered at least four months of service as of November 30.

The order also stated that employees who have rendered less than four months of service as of November 30 are entitled to a pro-rated share of the SRI; and employees who have not received any additional end of the year benefit in Fiscal Year 2019 over and above the benefit authorised under Republic Act No. 6686, are also entitled to receive the SRI.

The incentive is on top of the P60,000 bonus that Duterte announced earlier for the employees of the Office of the President.
