Malacañang is currently conducting a “performance review” of all incumbent presidential appointees to make sure that they remain qualified to hold their respective positions, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

“This is a directive to all presidential appointees, including those appointed by President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr., as part of performance review and to ensure continuing qualifications to remain in office,” Communication Secretary Cheloy Garafil said in a statement on Monday night.

Garafil issued the statement in response to queries about the Feb. 2 memorandum issued by the Presidential Management Staff (PMS), requiring presidential appointees to submit the documents needed for the performance review.


The memorandum was issued upon the directive of Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin.

Under the memorandum, all presidential appointees holding a post in government before Feb. 1, 2023 are directed to submit their updated Personal Data Sheet and clearances from the Civil Service Commission, the National Bureau of Investigation, Office of the Ombudsman, and Sandiganbayan.

All requirements must be submitted to the PMS within 30 days from the issuance of the memorandum.

The heads of departments, agencies, offices, instrumentalities, government-owned or -controlled corporations, government financial institutions, and state universities and colleges are mandated to ensure compliance by all presidential appointees under their respective agencies.
