Dear Mr. Mahinay,

This pertains to your request for data on the overall number of government employees for FY 2018.

The Staffing Summary is one of the budget documents that the Department prepares annually.  Said document shows the number of permanent positions in the National Government, categorized into the following:

1. Key Positions – refer to executive, managerial, and chief of division or equivalent positions;
2. Technical Positions – refer to positions directly performing the substantive and/or front-line services functions of the agency prescribed for its mandate;
3. Support to Technical Positions – refer to those positions which provide staff or technical support functions to key and technical positions but do not perform front-line services/functions; and
4. Administrative Positions – refer to those positions performing general services, clerical, human resource management, financial management, records management, custodial and other related functions.

The distribution of permanent positions by salary grade in the National Government  for FY 2018 may likewise be derived from the said document.

The Staffing Summary may be accessed from the DBM website> Budget Documents> 2018 > Staffing Summary.
Thank you.

Respectfully yours,

Maria Lourdes T. Aganon
FOI Officer
