Qualified government workers will have one more reason to smile these days after President Rodrigo Duterte signed Administrative Order No. 45 authorizing the grant of Php 10,000 service recognition incentive (SRI) to government workers.
Under AO No. 45, SRI will be received by civilian personnel in national government agencies (NGAs), including those in state universities and colleges (SUCs) and government-owned or –controlled corporations (GOCCs), occupying regular, contractual or casual positions.
Likewise, military personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines under the Department of National Defense, and uniformed personnel of the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology under the Department of the Interior and Local Government, the Bureau of Corrections under the Department of Justice, the Philippine Coast Guard under the Department of Transportation, and the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority under the Department of Environment and Natural Resources will also receive a one-time SRI.
