transparency seal




Transparency Seal explained


In National Budget Circular No. 542, issued on August 29, 2012, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) reiterates compliance by all offices of the national government, including state universities and colleges, government-owned and controlled corporations, government financial institutions and local government units with Section 93, the Transparency Seal provision, of the General Appropriations Act of 2012, to wit:

“Sec. 93. Transparency Seal. To enhance transparency and enforce accountability, all national government agencies shall maintain a transparency seal on their official websites. The transparency seal shall contain the following information: (i) the agency’s mandates and functions, names of its officials with their position and designation, and contact information; (ii) annual reports, as required under National Budget Circular Nos. 507 and 507-A dated January 31, 2007 and June 12, 2007, respectively, for the last three (3) years; (iii) their respective approved budgets and corresponding targets immediately upon approval of this Act; (iv) major programs and projects categorized in accordance with the five key results areas under E.O. No. 43, s. 2011; (v) the program/projects beneficiaries as identified in the applicable special provisions; (vi) status of implementation and program/project evaluation and/or assessment reports; and (vii) annual procurement plan, contracts awarded and the name of contractors/suppliers/consultants.”

The Circular also declares that the respective heads of the agencies shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with this section.


The Circular directs that the Transparency Seal must be prominently displayed on the main page of the agency website, and linked to a page within the agency website that contains the aforementioned documents in downloadable format. 



Symbolism of the Transparency Seal 


A pearl that is buried inside a tightly-shut shell is practically worthless. Government information is a pearl, meant to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value.


The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy shift towards openness in access to government information. On the one hand, it hopes to inspire Filipinos in the civil service to be more open to citizen engagement; on the other, it seeks to invite the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance.


This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the Philippines as the Pearl of the Orient – a shining example for democratic virtue in the region.

    DENR 10 SETS GUIDELINE ON ADOPTION OF EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY PRINCIPLE

    To further ensure work environment is free from all forms of discrimination, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR 10) has set its guideline on Adoption of Equal Employment Opportunity Principle following its signing by Regional Director Arleigh J. Adorable recently.

    Regional Director Adorable said the guideline was prepared to remind all officials and employees that regardless of ranks, everybody is entitled to be protected under existing laws, rules and regulations of the office.

    The guideline covers all DENR-10 employees (regular, casual and contract of service or job order); applicants for employment; clients; and the visiting public from all forms of discrimination especially those based on ethnicity, religion, gender identity and orientation, physical disability including pregnancy and senior citizens, political affiliation or other non-merit based factors.

    Management practices and decisions, including application and renewal of permits; recruitment and hiring practices; appraisal systems; promotion; career path; recognition and awards; scholarship; training and career development programs are covered under the guideline.

    Any employee or applicant who believes he or she has been subject to discrimination or retaliation should immediately report the matter to the DENR Action Center c/o Office of the Regional Director, the Chief, Administrative Division or the President of the employees union or the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Employees Association - 10 (DENREA 10).

    The guideline further guarantees that “officials, employees, applicants and the public are protected against retaliation. Retaliation means to do something in response to an action done to oneself or an associate, especially to attack or injure someone as a response to a hurtful action.”

    Based on the guideline, sanctions are meted on employees who fail to follow the guideline. For first offense, the employee will be reprimanded if the explanation is unjustified. For second offense, the employee will be suspended from One day to Thirty days and for non-organic personnel the sanction will be non-renewal of Contract of Service and third office is dismissal from government service. #TayoAngKalikasan
