Dear Jerishria Samson,


Thank you for your request dated Sep 25, 2017 11:26:59 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for Loyalty Award.

Please be guided of the following policy guidelines on the grant of loyalty award and cash gift:
   1. Loyalty Award - COA Circular No. 2013-003 as amended by COA Circular No. 003A; and
   2. Cash Gift - R.A. No. 6686 as amended by RA 8442.

For funding source, generally, both can be charged out of available Personnel Services savings of the agency. PDEA has an appropriation of P8.305M for cash gift under FY 2017 specific budget. Loyalty is chargeable against the PS savings of the agency.

Since both are authorized PS benefits, the agency can submit a Special Budget Request in case of deficiency in PS.

Your FOI request is approved.
