Greetings! I would just like to clarify what would be the proper application on the rules on grant of clothing allowance. Please refer to the example:

Appointment date of employee: 16 February 2022

Date of Office Order granting clothing allowance: 18 March 2022

Dear Roy Angelo Nepomuceno,

Dear Roy Angelo Nepomuceno,


Thank you for your request dated Sep 12, 2022 09:20:26 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

You are requesting for clarification on the grant of uniform/clothing allowance to a newly hired employee.

May we highlight that the rules and grant on the grant of uniform/clothing allowance is provided under Budget Circular No. 2018-1.

May we invite your attention to Item 9.1 of the Circular as it is applicable to newly hired employees. 

To expound, there are 2 conditions for a newly hired employee to qualify for the grant of the uniform/clothing allowance on the first year of employment: (i) the employee has rendered 6 months of service, and (ii) the employee is expected to render another 6 months of service for the rest of the year.   If the employee has complied with the first condition but not with the second one, he/she shall be included in the grant of the U/CA on the following year, if still in service. 

Attached is a copy of the DBM Circular for your perusal.
