Genuino highest paid gov’t exec at P287M

Efraim Genuino, the embattled former chair of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor), has come out on top of a list of highest-paid government officials in 2010, according to a Commission on Audit report.

Genuino, who headed the Pagcor until the change of administration on June 30, 2010, received a total of P287.4 million in salaries and allowances, the COA said.

The COA explained that the salaries and allowances of the topnotchers in the list included discretionary and confidential or intelligence funds.

The topnotchers in the previous years’ lists had protested the inclusion of discretionary and confidential or intelligence funds, claiming that these funds were used by their agencies and did not necessarily go to their pockets.

However, other highly paid officials in the 2010 list could not claim to have access to any confidential or discretionary funds. Their presence in the list was wholly because of their huge salaries, bonuses, incentives and benefits.

The next top earner after Genuino was his successor, Cristino Naguiat, with P69 million, for the six months that he served in 2010, but still less than what Genuino got.

As presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda has said, Naguiat has spent his first year in office conducting investigations into his predecessor’s conduct at Pagcor, filing a raft of criminal complaints against Genuino for allegedly misusing the funds of the agency.

The other top 10 earners—a mix of past and incumbent officials—were:

Former Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales with P15.9 million; Angeles City Water District head Romeo Calara, P15 million; Clark Development Corp. president Benigno Ricafort, P14 million; Former Philippine National Construction Corp. (PNCC) president Ma. Theresa Defensor, P12.5 million; Development Bank of the Philippines CEO Edgardo Garcia, P11.9 million; Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin, P10.9 million; Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Amando Tetangco, P10.6 million, and DBP executive vice president Benedicto Bitonio, P9 million.

Ricafort, Garcia, Tetangco and Bitonio were also in the list of top earners in 2009.

2009 topnotcher

The official who topped the list in 2009, the then Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Administrator Armand Arreza, did not figure in the 2010 list and neither did any incumbent SBMA official. Arreza was listed as having received P26.865 million in 2009.

Ricafort, the second highest earner in 2009 and No. 3 in 2010, had protested the 2009 COA report showing that he received P14.5 million, claiming that funds that were not part of his paycheck were wrongly credited to him.

According to the 2010 COA report, the bulk of the money that Genuino received in 2010 were confidential/intelligence funds and discretionary and miscellaneous funds.

The confidential funds amounted to P283 million, while the discretionary and miscellaneous funds totalled P1.5 million. His basic salary was P473,407, while his bonus, incentives and benefits came to P1.2 million.

Genuino’s allowances amounted to P905,005 while his personal economic relief allowance amounted to P8,950.

In the case of Naguiat, his confidential/intelligence funds amounted to P66.2 million, and his discretionary and miscellaneous funds, P306,652. His basic salary was P476,016 and his bonus, incentives and benefits came to P1.229 million. His allowances amounted to P909,000 and the separate personal economic relief allowance was P8,950.

Gonzales’ confidential funds amounted to P15 million and discretionary funds, P145,999. His basic salary was P362,106 and his bonus, incentives and other benefits, P332,093. His allowances amounted to P66,000, while his economic relief allowance was P12,000.

Calara had P8.7 million in discretionary and miscellaneous expense funds, and P5 million in confidential funds. His basic salary was P708,000 and his allowances amounted to P287,200.

Calara’s bonus, incentives and benefits was P241,000, while his economic relief allowance was P24,000.

‘Others…’

Ricafort had P10 million in confidential/intelligence funds, and a basic salary of P2 million. His allowances amounted to P1.4 million while his bonuses reached P566,151. He also got P18,000 in economic relief allowance and another P18,000 classified as “others.”

Defensor had no discretionary or confidential funds in 2010, but she had P7.2 million in bonuses, incentives and benefits. Her basic salary was P4.5 million. She also got P765,087 in allowances and P21,000 classified as “others.”

In its 2009 audit of the PNCC, the COA had reprimanded the state-owned construction firm for giving its board of directors, officers and employees P57 million in allowances that it said lacked legal basis. It said the PNCC had done this while owing the government more than P7 billion in concession fees and other liabilities.

DBP’s Garcia had no discretionary or confidential funds, but he had a basic salary of P6.4 million. He also had P4.2 million in allowances and P1.3 million in bonuses, incentives and benefits. He got P12,000 in economic relief allowance and P32,400 classified as “others.”

Gazmin, Tetangco

Gazmin had P9.9 million in confidential and intelligence funds and P145,999 in discretionary and miscellaneous expense funds. His basic salary was P416,748, while his bonus, incentives and benefits amounted to P384,458. His allowances stood at P66,000, and he also received an additional economic relief allowance of P12,000.

Tetangco had P991,052 in discretionary funds. He had a basic salary of P5.4 million and P2.24 million in allowances. His bonus, incentives and other benefits amounted to P1.972 million. He got P6,000 in economic relief allowance, and another P67,133 classified as “others.”

Bitonio had no discretionary or confidential funds. His basic salary was P4.9 million, while his allowances amounted to P3.2 million. His bonuses, incentives and benefits stood at P1 million. He also got P12,000 in economic relief allowance and P32,400 in “others.”

    Just imagine the gap between the serf and the lord. This is our country where the chosen ones are rewarded with hefty salaries and perks if you are member of the elite club. Just imagine the government teachers, nurses, doctors, clerks, policemen, laborers, street cleaners but most of all our soldiers who fight and die depending our country. The irony, our government can only provide equivalent to alms to the beneficiaries of fallen soldiers. Soldiers who fought and faced insurgencies and bandits ill-equipped with only sardines and dried fish as their meal. Armed with defective rifles and guns and wearing less effective battle support. Their lives were considered expendables with little value equivalent only to medals that you cannot even pawn. A laughable additional compensation while on dangerous mission or risky areas. It is like they were paid per kilo of their damaged or destroyed limbs. Where is the righteousness and equitable compensation for these defender of our nation lies? Is it only for the highly educated members of the elite and the privileged government officials? The system of compensation in our country is very very sick if not insanely programmed. I recalled one movie about Nelson Mandela, complaining to his secretary that his salary is too big, telling her that it should not be that much. He then said that change must start from the highest position of the state for the change to succeed. Well, who can dare among government officials to follow Mandela’s wisdom? As some people said that wisdom comes from God and knowledge comes from evil thought by the deceiver. I do not believe that economic prosperity can be forthcoming if the system in our country will not change significantly that will help alleviate the burden of the greater poor population. And I don’t believed that prosperity can be achieved by entertaining the poor masses with money shows and soap operas. New laws must be created  if not amended that will completely eliminate corruption by implementation and application of strict penalty of not only incarceration but death penalty and must be acted immediately.

    Now has anyone ever wondered, why they kept portraying that working for the government is is least compensated when infact the figures being reported indicates how much these officials are being paid and may special economic relief allowance pa… di pa kasama jan yun mga personal expense nila na nakacharge sa government offices nila… such as food, clothing, gas, water bills and household expenses so long as they have receipts to prove they can ask for reimbursements pa… samantalang si ordinary Juan’s are working very hard and yet their basic salary is just equivalent to the economic relief allowance of these officials… speaking of equality of wealth in this nation!!!! Well with the exception of the BSP Governor and the National Security Advicer, I’d agree that they are working hard and are justified to be given so much in salary, but for the others questionable, how come the salary of a Angeles City water district Chief is even higher than that of DBP CEO and PNCC President and has even beaten the salary of the National Security Advicer and BSP Governor… thats awesome… mag water district chief nalang tayong lahat

    • Anonymous

      I think the ordinary government workers and employees are still amongst the least compensated, but if they become officials, then they also start sucking the nations’a blood as well as those working under them and the people they are supposed to serve, since this is what they learn from their superiors. It’s just like the generals and their cohorts who have all the necessary heavy arms, bulletproof vests, and silver bullets just sitting behind their desk in air conditioned rooms watching the latest DVD’s while drinking French or Italian wines, and the poor foot soldiers with their junior officers doing the fighting with antique guns, mortars that don’t fire, bullets that cannot even penetrate banana trees, bullet proof vests made of styrofoam, slinghots, sumpak, firecrackers, etc… running the risks of being killed and beheaded by the better armed enemies. But once they survive, if they will, and get promoted to higher ranks, then many of them too become more or less like their previous higher ranking officers. This is where the mindset of the people must be changed, by starting to instill good and honest values as well as critical thinking starting at the primary schools while still young. Then they can grow up to become good and honest leaders. It’s a tough task and takes time, like honing athletes to become champions, but it is achievable. A good start is to let people know that violating the law is always punishable by implementing proportional punishments to the law that has been violated. Even those who knows but just play blind, deaf and mute will still be punished as an accomplish to the violation of the law. No friends, no relatives no KKK…business is business!

    Holy crap! Nine-figure (000,000,000), eight-figure (00,000,000) annual gross income in government. Hmmmm….not bad, not bad at all. And with the attendant perks, plus those below the table (wink, wink) not bad, not bad at all. Even if they pay the right taxes (knock, knock. hello, BIR), they’d still clear quite a tidy sum.

    Workings stiffs, like you and me, are hard put, earning measly annual six-figure and below, gross incomes. So, right now, I’m telling my kids to prepare for a career in government–why go for the crumbs when the whole luscious pie is there?

    Now this explains why Pagcor cannot afford to give the salary increase as prescribed by law to its employees nor give the promotions due to employees who have been designated in acting capacity for several years without just compensation. These employees have been exploited by Pagcor management to be able to afford 10 million per month for Naguiat. I just hope Mr. Naguiat gets to sleep soundly at night knowing that he oppresses most of his employees except maybe those who were close to him when he was still the head of the treasury and finance department. He wasted no time in giving his people juicy positions in Pagcor while others who have been exploited in acting capacity for long periods of time were taken for granted. I also hope that Mr. Bailey, the number one “tuta” of Naguiat, will not be haunted by his conscience for being the architect of these oppression and exploitation.

    We allowed the politicians and their cohorts to print money… at our expense, the result is massive corruption and INFLATION that will wipe out the middle, the working class and the poor in our society. The filipino people and our posterity is doomed.

    See how prices gone up in the recent years up to this day, our monetary and economic system will continue to destroy savings by INFLATION and CORRUPTION, destroying the value of the people’s money. See how easy to grab millions by prostituting our country to foreign elements and special interest groups, how easy to grab billions more by special favors and bribery or creating unneccessary bills like the RH Bill… while our poor country men are struggling very hard to make ends meet… Its a very sad story to our children (if they survive the chaos), how evil has prevailed in the soul of the filipino society.

    Oh my Gulay! The Philippines must be a developed country already to have government personnel to earn this much. Outrageous! But then again, only in the Philippines where CORRUPTION is like an INSTITUTION.

    He saw and the thieves all saw what the role model at the top was doing aided by equally klepto disease afflicted officials and so – the fiestahan in Juan’s kaban nang bayan went unnoticed until the stench started to foul the air.  Now, as can be expected, they become richer while Juan dela Krus continue wallowing in poverty. I say bring back the death penalty time to get rid of such people.

    itong si genuino talaga..laki na ng kita, nagnakaw pa para itaguyod ang kandidatura ng kanyang anak…kapag ito ay hindi nakulong at ang iba pang nagnakaw sa kaban ng pilipinas, mag-alsa na tayo at ang unang puntiryahin ay ang mga korte,,kayong mga pulis at militar na matitino, tulungan ang mga kababayan dahil pati kayong mga nasa ibaba ay ninanakawan din ng inyong mga pinuno…ang la-laki ng mga bahay nila pero hindi makaisip na magtayo ng mga housing sa loob ng mga kampong malalaki…puro payaman lang ang mga nasa isip…a friend of mine served on a foreign military outfit…he said housing is available in almost every base for members with family..barracks is always available for bachelors or geographical-bachelors…if none is available, each department leases apartments for both bachelors and married soldiers to live.. dito sa atin, kung sino pa ang sumasagupa sa kalaban ng bansa, siya pa ang kawawa..pag may mga namatay sa pakikipaglaban, gagawin ng mga bayani..pupunta sa “wake” pakikita ‘yong mga “crocodile tears”.. the dept of defense has its own budget..the army, air force, marines and coast guard also have their own budget, or do they?..from hereon in, these military depts must have their own budget respectively but controlled by the treasury dept..katunayan dapat lahat ng dept. ng gobyerno, kontrata lang sa kanila, tapos ipapadala ang mga resibo sa treasury dept para bayaran ‘yong mga contractor sa ganoon isa lang ang pupuntahan ng audit kung sakaling may anomaliya..lahat ng labas ng budget ng bawat dept may resibo..di pwedeng magpalabas o magbayad ang treasury dept kung walang resibong  pinadala sa kanila..kung kakihinahinala ang resibo, pakitawag ang COA para tingnan kung tutoo..at least if corruption still exists,  it will be minimized…ang problema lang…PAPAYAG KAYA SILA?????

    the ability of the Ph government to expose wrongdoings & stealing of government money by its officials & cohorts in private sectors are excellent per se, but the prosecutions and punishments for those thieves & robbers are exceptionally poor and unequaled in the whole world!  even for another hundred years the country will remain a pauper since the people have no guts to punish the culprits, the marcos family is a very glaring example; quo vadis to the ” daang matuwid ” ? its high time that those poor now should do what those leaders are doing to match their “riches”, and that is fair enough, to each his own? the laws are applicable only to the poor & impoverished, the “rich” are above & beyond the laws of the land?

    Dapat mag issue na ng warrant of arrest before the crooks leave the country and better clip their assets for easy recovery.  What are the prosecutors doing now.Walang bail yung plunder di ba?

    Some parts of this report seems to confuse confidential/intelligence budgets of the office with earnings of the heads of their respective office/agency. Paki-ayos nga. Somewhat misleading.
