The FPA’S New Normal Workforce Plan: Revised Guidelines on Service Continuity was prepared in consistent with the applicable issuances of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and other relevant government entities such as the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF), Department of Health (DOH), and the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to progress, the Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) have to be implemented FPA-wide. These guidelines consider the potential risks that threaten the service continuity of the Agency; hence, these provide guidance and information to assist the Agency to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and assist the entire organization with response and recovery moving forward towards the “new normal” for the continuity of essential service operations and processes while protecting the welfare of the employees.
Due to the evolving situation caused by the COVID-19 and on considerations for State-level decision making, the laws and regulations will supplant the provisions of this Service Continuity Guide.
