BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE RATIONALIZATION PLAN AND

EXECUTIVE ORDER 366

WHAT IS THE RATIONALIZATION PLAN (RAT PLAN)?

The Rationalization Program was mandated for government agencies in October 2004 through
Executive Order (EO) 366

The goal is to improve the quality and efficiency of government services


Offices will be reorganized to do this

HOW WILL THE RAT PLAN IMPACT THE ORGANIZATION?

The new structure is process-oriented, meaning, offices are there to perform specific
functions
o Ex: BEE, BSE, and BALS have been reorganized to form the Bureau of Curriculum
Development and Bureau of Learning Delivery
The new structure also takes into account changes in the DepEds strategic directions and
technology (ICT, DRRM, etc.)

WHO ARE INCLUDED IN THE RAT PLAN?

Central Office
Regional Offices
Division office Proper
Casual and Contractual Employees funded under GAA-PS with appointment attested by
CSC
NOT included: Schools, DepEd-ARMM, Attached Agencies, COS (GAA-MOOE), and
COS (foreign-funded)

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AFFECTED?

Affected means that their current position is not in the new structure OR there are fewer
items provided in the new structure
All affected employees are provided options, whether they want to remain in government
service or retire/be separated with benefits

WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR AFFECTED EMPLOYEES?

Remain in government service


o Express intent to be placed in a comparable position and go through the placement
process
If the employee is qualified, he/she may be placed in a comparable position
within the same job group with same Salary Grade (SG) or up to 3 SG levels
higher
It means they might change their position or job title or office but will still be
working for DepEd using their skills/knowledge

o Convert item to Co-Terminus with the Incumbent (CTI) status
CTI status is still a REGULAR plantilla item. Employees who choose CTI will
retain their salary grade and rank, and are still entitled to the government
benefits attached to their position (except for those given due to performance
of specific functions i.e. RATA for the division chief)
It means they can choose to hold on to their item until they choose to retire,
resign, or get appointed to another position.
They will be assigned to where their services and skills are needed.
For those interested to apply for the new or higher vacant positions, they can
also choose CTI status while applying for new positions in the new structure.
If they get appointed, the old item will be abolished. In the event that they
dont get appointed, they can retain the CTI status
Retirement / separation under EO 366
o It means they choose not to work for government anymore. They will get more
benefits than regular retirement or separation, meaning aside from what they
would have gotten from GSIS, they will also get additional incentives from
government (through DBM) under EO 366
o For employees choosing this option, they cannot be appointed to a regular position
in government agencies for the next 5 years (except in hospitals or public schools)

*TAKE NOTE: For regular employees holding plantilla items:

No one will lose their rank or position level.


No one will be forced to retire. It is voluntary.
No one will be forced out or retrenched from the organization
For the casual and contractual employees:
o Contracts of casual and contractual employees are extended beyond Dec 15 with
approval from DBM
