Updated: Jun 1, 2021

Bontoc, Mountain Province – As the lone local government unit in the Cordillera to qualify for the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) in 2020, officials and employees of Bontoc LGU are now eligible to receive their incentive bonus depending on their performance as well as the performance of their respective office.

The municipality of Bontoc has also qualified for said incentive in 2019 alongside Kibungan Benguet and Lamut and Asipulo in Ifugao.

According to Municipal Budget Officer Aida Lingbanan, the amount an employee shall receive will be based on his or her Office’s Performance Commitment and Review (OPCR) accomplishment rating for the past two rating periods in 2020.

Mayor Franklin Odsey expressed hope that said development will inspire and challenge the Bontoc LGU officials and employees to always strive for excellence in performing their duties as public servants, as these efforts will be given due recognition.

The achievement, he said, is a result of the concerted efforts of municipal offices/ departments and partner stakeholders in the delivery of services to the people, as well as participatory governance.

He added that all the activities of the local government are anchored on his administration’s vision of “BONTOC ON THE RISE” which revolves around his five major programs to include People-centered Service, Disaster Preparedness and Resiliency, Youth Development, Shared Prosperity and Sustainability and Health.
