Dear Yuno Ssi,

Please be informed that as a matter of policy, this Commission does not render opinion/ruling on issues that may eventually be a subject of a complaint or appeal before it.

Nevertheless, pertinent to your query is Section 13 (c), Rule IV, 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions (2017 ORAOHRA), as Amended which reads, as follows:

“c. Designation- movement that involves an imposition of additional and/or higher duties to be performed by a public official/employee which is temporary and can be terminated anytime at the pleasure of the appointing officer/authority.


“Designation shall be governed by the following rules:

“1. Employees to be designated should hold permanent appointments to career positions.

“2. Designees can only be designated to positions within the level they are currently occupying. Employees holding first level positions cannot be designated to perform the duties of second level positions except in meritorious cases as determined by the CSC Regional Office upon request for exemption by the agency concerned, such as organizational set-up, calamity, and due to exigency of the service. This exception shall not apply to positions involving supervisory and executive managerial functions.” (Emphasis supplied)

Hope to have enlightened you on the matter.
