PRESIDENTIAL DECREE No. 186 May 10, 1973
PROVIDING FOR THE FULL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE INTEGRATED REORGANIZATION PLAN, AS AMENDED, THROUGH THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 1973-1974
WHEREAS, pursuant to Part XXIII of the Integrated Reorganization Plan, hereinafter referred to as the Plan, as amended by Presidential Decree No. 89, dated January 5, 1973, and further amplified under Memorandum Circular No. 620 of the Executive Secretary, review and approval of the implementing details to the Plan, including the staffing patterns, would fall in March, 1973;
WHEREAS, the Plan has to be amended further in order to introduce desirable organizational changes and refinements as well as to reflect subsequent Presidential Decrees and decisions modifying the Plan; and for this reason, the implementing details to the Plan cannot be fully completed in March, 1973;
WHEREAS, since only the last quarter remains of Fiscal Year 1972-1973, it also becomes impractical to proceed with the full implementation of the Plan, as amended, during this Fiscal Year;
WHEREAS, in order to afford an orderly transition to the reorganized set-up provided for under the Plan that would involve a minimum disruption of governmental operations, the most practical and effective way to implement the Plan would be through the Budget for Fiscal Year 1973-1974;
WHEREAS, this approach will simplify full implementation of the Plan since it will involve consolidating the process of approving the staffing patterns and revised budgetary structures in accordance with the reorganized set-up, with the process of preparing and approving the Budget for Fiscal Year 1973-1974;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, FERDINAND E. MARCOS, President of the Philippines, by virtue of the powers vested in me by the Constitution as Commander-in-Chief of all the Armed Forces of the Philippines, and pursuant to Proclamation No. 1081 dated September 21, 1972, and General Order No. 1 dated September 22, 1972, as amended, and Presidential Decree No. 1 dated September 24, 1972, do hereby order and decree as follows:
1. The full implementation of the Plan, as amended, shall be effected through the Budget for Fiscal Year 1973-1974. Accordingly, the preparation, review and approval of the implementing details to the Plan, including the staffing patterns, shall be done and become effective concurrently with the preparation, approval, and effectivity of the Budget for Fiscal Year 1973-1974.
2. All departments and agencies shall prepare and submit their budget estimates for Fiscal Year 1973-1974, including staffing patterns, to the Budget Commission in accordance with the reorganized set-up provided for in the Plan, as amended.
For reorganized agencies that already have staffing patterns approved by the President, or may subsequently have staffing patterns approved before June 30, 1973 by the Budget Commission in consultation with the Presidential Commission on Reorganization pursuant to a Presidential directive, said staffing patters shall be the basis for incorporation in the Budget for Fiscal Year 1973-1974.
3. The Budget Commission shall, in coordination with the Presidential Commission on Reorganization, prepare the Budget for Fiscal Year 1973-1974 strictly in accordance with the Plan, as amended.
All concerned, especially heads of departments, chiefs of bureaus and offices and instrumentalities of the Government, except government-owned and controlled corporations, the Budget Commission and the Presidential Commission on Re- organization shall act accordingly pursuant to the contents of this Decree.
Presidential Decree No. 89, dated January 5, 1973, as amplified by Memorandum Circular No. 620 of the Executive Secretary date January 23, 1973, is accordingly modified.
Done in the City of Manila, this 10th of May, in the year of Our Lord, nineteen hundred and seventy-three.
