1. Application of Nepotism in the Local Government.

The rule on prohibition on Nepotism in the local government units applies only to appointments in the career service of relatives of the appointing or recommending authority within the fourth civil degree.

2. What do you mean by relative under the rules on nepotism.

It depends.

Under the EO 292 it refers to those related within the third degree of consanguinity (relationship by blood) or affinity (relationship by marriage) such as spouse (1st degree), children (1st degree), sibling (2nd degree), nephew and niece (3rd degree), and uncle and aunt (3rd degree).

Under the Local Government Code of 1991 the prohibition extends to appointing or recommending authority's relatives within the fourth degree of consanguinity and affinity.

Just want to inquire and be enlightened on the following:
1. Is a sister-in-law under the rules on nepotism re affinity?
2. Could she be appointed/promoted to an officer position (division manager) if the employee concern happens to be a sister in law of one of the Board of Directors of a GOCC?
3. What officer positions are covered by the Board's authority to confirm prior to submission of appointment to the CSC?

As to your first question, Yes.

As to your second and third questions. Please refer to the GOCC's charter because it is material who is the appointing authority.

Nepotism is defined as an appointment issued in favor of a relative within the third civil degree of consanguinity or affinity of any of the following: (1) appointing authority; (2) recommending authority; (3) chief of the bureau or office; and (4) person exercising immediate supervision over the appointee.

Our agency is a water district and govern by PD 198 as amended which provides that appointment of general manager and officers should be confirm by the Board of Directors. we have an employee who is a candidate for promotion (Division Manager) being the next in rank, but happens to be related to one of our Board member (through affinity) our appointing authority could not act on the said promotion of the concern employee. are the positions of Division Manager and Division Chief position alike that falls under the rank and file. If so, does the Board still needs to confirm said appointment prior to submission to the CSC?

Due to the vagueness, as who is the appointing authority and the fact that the appointment requires confirmation by the board, we cannot directly answer your query. We invite you to write us a formal query either by mail or e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Nevertheless, Nepotism is defined as an appointment issued in favor of a relative within the third civil degree of consanguinity or affinity of any of the following: (1) appointing authority; (2) recommending authority; (3) chief of the bureau or office; and (4) person exercising immediate supervision over the appointee.

Because of RA10149 and the GCG's Governance Manual for GOCCs, the appointing authority of ALL GOCCs under the GCG are their respective Governing Boards/Boards of Trustees/Boards of Directors.
