Also reshuffled are Deputy Administrator Atty. Rossan Rosero-Lee from Legal Services to Special Concerns Office; and Atty. Vicar Loureen Lofranco from Corporate Communications and Social Marketing Office (CCSMO) to CRFS as deputy administrator in an acting capacity.
Corporate Planning Office (CPO) department manager, Engr. Roderick Padua is now the new head of Information Technology and Communication Services Department (ITCSD). Meanwhile, Engr. Francisco Caymo is the new department manager of CPO.
ITCSD Department Manager Ana Rosa Papa is reassigned to the Office for Performance Assessment and Special Studies (OPASS) while Rosarita Salvador, public relations chief, is designated as Acting Department Manager for CCSMO.
"As leaders and managers in their assigned sectors and/or departments, (they) are expected to assume the functions and responsibilities in their respective sectors/departments, primarily geared towards the objective of achieving the NEA Vision and the accomplishment of the mandated Mission," the NEA chief said in the order.
This is the first major reshuffle of sector and department heads implemented since Administrator Masongsong assumed office in November 2016. NEA
