Question Designation in Acting Capacity with RATA

3 years 3 weeks ago #8147 by Noel Papares
Noel Papares created the topic: Designation in Acting Capacity with RATA

May we know if those employees designated in Acting Capacity to the positions with RATA are entitled to receive such RATA? How about those designated as OIC only?

What is the basis?

Thank you very much.

Please be guided with the rules on designation under Section 13 (c), Rule IV, 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions (2017 ORAOHRA), Revised July 2018, 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 may involve the performance of the duties of another position on a concurrent capacity or on full-time basis.

A designation in an acting capacity entails not only the exercise of the ministerial functions attached to the position but also the exercise of discretion since the person designated is deemed to be the incumbent of the position.

Officials designated as Officer-in-Charge (OIC) enjoy limited powers which are confined to functions of administration and ensuring that the office continues its usual activities. The OIC may not be deemed to possess the power to appoint employees as the same involves the exercise of discretion which is beyond the power of an OIC, unless the designation order issued by the proper appointing officer/authority expressly includes the power to issue appointment.
Designation shall be governed by the following rules:


7. Designees cannot be granted the salaries of the positions they are being designated to. However, allowances that go with the performance of the functions such as RATA (Representation and Transportation Allowance) or EME (Extraordinary and Miscellaneous Expenses) may be granted as provided under the provisions of the General Appropriations Act (GAA) or appropriation ordinance of the respective local sanggunian; provided, the grant of the same is specifically stated in the designation order.
