Question Question on Designation

Assuming that a Division Chief Position is vacant. There are several qualified second level personnel that can be designated. 1-3 salary grade lower than a salary grade for a division chief while the other personnel is 4-8 grades lower than a division chief's sg. May the head of the department choose the one with the lower SG since the one with lower SG is more experienced than the one with the higher SG (in terms of being hired in their office). If yes, may the higher SG protest against the designation? Since he/she is the next lower SG than that of a Division Chief? Or it is the discretion of the Appointing Authority/Head of Office Concerned to place the designation with the one with a lower SG. Thanks.

Good morning!

Please consider these rules on designation:

1. Employees to be designated should hold permanent appointments to career positions;
2. Designees can only be designated to positions within the level they are currently occupying. Employees holding first level positions can not be designated to perform the duties of second level positions except in meritorious cases as determined by the CSC Regional Office upon request for exemption by the agency concerned, such as organizational set-up, calamity and due to exigency of the service. This exception shall not apply to positions involving supervisory and executive managerial functions. Division Chiefs may be designated to perform the duties of second level executive/managerial or third level positions.
4. For positions without incumbents, a designation may be made only for a maximum of one (1) year. However, the designation of employees may be renewed every year in the exigency of the service but not to exceed two (2) years.
5. Designations shqall be made through an office order issued by the appointing officer/authority concerned.
6. For designation to critical positions in the local government units such as Provincial/Municipal Government Department Head, a copy of the office order shall be furnished by the HRMOs of the LGUs to the CSCFO concerned. Employees designated to positions with duties involving practice of profession shall be required to possess the necessary professional license.
8. Only experience gained from designation compliant with the abovestated rules shall be credited as relevant experience for purposes of appointment.
