Action Officer replied the topic: Late Submission of Applications
Good day Sir/Madam:

As a matter of policy, this Office refrains from rendering categorical opinions on matters and issues that may later be a subject of an administrative proceeding before the Commission either via an appeal or a complaint. This is to preclude the possibility of prejudgment should an actual administrative case be commenced or instituted based on the said matters or issues.

Anent your query, the appointing authority has the discretion to extend the deadline of submission of applications for a vacant position.

The 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions (Revised July 2018), has also extended the validity of a publication from six months to nine months, and in case no appointment is issued within the nine-month period, the agency has to re-publish and re-post the vacancy. The CSC said that applications arising from a re-published vacancy should be assessed according to the agency’s standard recruitment procedures.

Further, it is emphasized that the Civil Service Commission has issued Memorandum Circular No. 14, s. 2020 re Interim Guidelines on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions (IGAOHRA) for the Period of State of Calamity Due to COVID-19 Pandemic.

Said Circular provides that agencies shall adopt internal guidelines that will allow online recruitment and selection processes such as online competency assessments, video conferencing for interviews and selection board deliberations, in recruiting and selecting candidates. In that regard, agencies should provide CSC Regional Office and CSC Field Office concerned a copy of said guidelines.

We hope that we were able to answer your query.
