PALO, Leyte, March 20 (PIA) -- Although the Civil Service Commission has deferred the use of the new form in filing the statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN), those who had filed their SALNs using the new form need not file a new one; they are deemed to have complied with the requirement in disclosing their assets and liabilities..
This was disclosed by CSC Region 8 Information Officer Rosalie Taon at the Suruswerte Ha PIA radio program at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday.
Taon said that CSC Memorandum Circular No. 5, series of 2012 signed by CSC Chairman Francisco Duque III, stated that pursuant to CSC Resolution No. 1200480 dated March 15, 2012, the Commission resolved to defer the use of the Revised SALN form for 201.
The 1994 SALN old form will be used for year 2011, the deadline of filing of which is on April 30, 2012 Taon said.
In its resolution, the commission said the new SALN form was created in compliance with the laws requiring the filing of such statements. But it decided to postpone its use because of the concerns raised by various sectors.
The SALN form was revised in order to comply with the provisions of the anti-graft law, which requires the disclosure of public officials’ sources of income, amount of family expenses and income taxes paid.
The old form only conformed with the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.
Taon called on the government employees in Eastern Visayas to submit their truthfully filled up SALN on or before April 30. (EOPT - PIA 8)
