NegOr SP OKs P28M PEI
for Capitol employees
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Negros Oriental allotted more than P28 million for the Productivity Enhancement Incentive of Capitol employees as reward for exceeding agency financial and operational performance targets.
The PEI is provided for in Executive Order 181, signed by President Benigno Aquino III, dated May 25 this year. Section 1 of the order states the one-time grant of the PEI which is equivalent to either P5,000 across the board, or one month basic salary of a government employee.
The SP appropriated P28 million for the grant of what was described by employees as their 14 th month pay, Provincial Administrator Richard Inojo said.
