Dear Mister Lindugan:

Please be informed that as a matter of policy, the Commission does not render opinions or rulings on issues that may be the subject of a complaint or appeal before it. Our reply is based on the facts you have narrated.

However, your attention is invited to the following provisions on Designation under the 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Action (2017 ORAOHRA), thus:


“Sec. 13. Other Human Resource Actions. The following human resource actions which will not require the issuance of an appointment shall nevertheless require an Office Order issued by the appointing officer/authority:


“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.


“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 can not 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. Division Chiefs may be designated to perform the duties of second level executive/managerial or third level positions.


‘4. For positions without incumbents, a designation may be made only for a maximum of one (1) year. However, the designation of employees may be renewed every year in the exigency of the service but not to exceed two (2) years.

‘5. Designations shall be made through an office order issued by the appointing officer/authority concerned.

‘6. For designation to critical positions in the local government units such as Provincial/City/Municipal Government Department Head, a copy of the office order shall be furnished by the HRMOs of the LGUs to the CSCFO concerned. Employees designated to positions with duties involving practice of profession shall be required to possess the necessary professional license.


‘8. Only experience gained from designation compliant with the abovestated rules shall be credited as relevant experience for purposes of appointment”

As regards your query if he could get or appointed to said position, it is required that he should meet the qualification standards required for the position he was designated, that is as to education, eligibility, experience and training and after undergoing the normal process of hiring and selection.

We hope to have enlightened you on the matter.
