The Civil Service Commission Aklan Field Office (CSCFO Aklan) has transferred to the 3rd Floor of the Administration Building, College of Industrial Technology, Aklan State University, Roxas Avenue Extension, Kalibo, Aklan effective January 14, 2013.
“No token compliance.”
This was underscored by Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairman Francisco T. Duque III as he reminded heads of offices to start forming their respective review and compliance committee that will check the Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN) submitted by their officials and employees.
“Public servants are expected to exercise utmost sincerity and consciousness when filing the SALNs. The public builds its trust and confidence upon people who perform well and live up to their expectation. And disclosing our assets and liabilities is one measure of adherence to transparency and accountability,” said Chairman Duque.
Under Section 3 of Rule VIII of Republic Act No. 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees, it is the ministerial duty of the Head of Office to issue Compliance Order “requiring those who have incomplete data in their SALN to correct/supply the desired information and those who did not file/submit their SALNs to comply within a non-extendible period of 30 days from receipt of the said Order.”
The CSC also issued Resolution No. 1300174 or the Amendment to the Review and Compliance Procedure in the Filing and Submission of the Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth and Disclosure of Business Interests and Financial Connections to stress that the heads of offices are given only five days from receipt of the list and recommendation of the SALN review and compliance committee to issue the Compliance Order.
Chairman Duque noted that the Supreme Court has created its Review and Compliance Committee.
Meanwhile, the CSC will conduct an information campaign on the new SALN guidelines with its regional and provincial offices conducting orientation sessions to foster better understanding on the new form and facilitate compliance, reported Chairman Duque.
Under RA No. 6713, failure of an official or employee to submit his/her SALN is punishable by suspension for one month and one day to six months for the first offense, and dismissal from service on the second offense.
For more information and/or clarifications on the new SALN form, the public may call the CSC Public Assistance Center at (02) 932-0111, send an SMS via 0917- TEXTCSC (8398272) or call the Contact Center ng Bayan at 1-6565.
