Towards the Philippine Army Plantilla-Based Position Congruency Framework
Keywords:military, army, congruency plan
The researcher aimed in this research work to propose the Philippine Army Plantilla-Based Position Congruency Plan.
The researcher will determine the following: (1) the current status of the Philippine Army Civilian Human Resources in terms of the Table of Organization and Equipment; and the approved Department of Budget and Management Plantilla Positions. (2) The differences between Philippine Army major Units (PAMUs) and offices in their readiness condition based on the approved Philippine Army Table of Organization and Equipment of Civilian Human Resources with the approved Department of Budget and Management plantilla positions. (3) The challenges encountered in the incongruence of the approved Philippine Army Table of Organization and Equipment of Civilian Human Resources and the Department of Budget and Management approved plantilla positions. (4) The measures available to address the challenges above. (5) The congruency framework can be proposed for the Philippine Army Plantilla-based Position?
The researchers have found that the Department of Budget and Management approves only 1550 Plantilla Positions compared to the 3,088 plantilla positions requested by the Philippine Army using the Table of Organization and Equipment. Relatively, the approved plantilla position of the Department of Budget and Management is around 49% of what is needed in the Philippine Army Major Units and the whole organization.
Several mechanisms were done to cope with the needs of the Philippine Army Major Units and the organization as a whole, such as the use of military personnel to augment the civilian workforce, overtime services without the corresponding overtime pay, working outside their prescribed jobs, and sourcing out people to work in contractual basis. These issues bring low morale to civilian human resources and even create and develop work-related stress.
Five significant challenges were identified in this study. These are the following: low readiness condition rating, job disparity, a high turnover rate of civilian human resources, quality of work, and the realization of organizational mission, vision, aims, and objectives.
Measure to be placed to address the challenges mentioned above in the approved plantilla position of the Department of Budget and Management vis-a-vis the approved and submitted Table of Organization and Equipment by the Armed Forces of the Philippines, notably the Philippine Army. The Philippine Army should request and secure additional approved plantilla positions for the Department of Budget and Management following the documentary requirements for budgetary requests organization, staffing, compensation, and position classification set by the department.
