Tuesday, 12 March 2013 02:04

The Council of Personnel Officers (CPO) held its monthly meeting at the DMMMSU Open University System last Feb. 15 where various Memorandum Circulars (MC) were presented and discussed. Among the MCs discussed was the Amendment to the Review and Compliance Procedure in the Filing and Submission of the SALN and Disclosure of Business Interests & Financial Conditions or M.C. No.3 s. 2013.

Section 3 of the said M.C. states that “it shall be the ministerial duty of the Head of Office to issue an order requiring those who have incomplete data in their Statement of Assets, Liabilities and SALN to correct/supply the desired information and those who did not file/submit their SALNs to comply within a non-extendible period of thirty (30) days from receipt of the said Order.”

Further, Section 4 of the M.C. states that “failure of an official or employee to correct/submit his/her SALN in accordance with the procedure and within the given period pursuant to the directive in Section 3 hereof shall be a ground for disciplinary action.”

It is then the duty of the personnel officers to remind their respective personnel of these provisions.
