Fiscal Oversight Board questions granting permanence to 1,032 temporary government employees

Although for “the moment” it will not prevent its implementation, the Fiscal Oversight Board (JSF) questioned the government’s granting permanence to 1,032 temporary employees under Law 96 of 2023 and warned that other candidates with merit may be “ruled out”thus violating the public service reform.

In passing, the Board stressed that the government has not provided formal estimates of the fiscal impact of this measure.

“In granting regular status to certain eligible transitional employees, the government assumes that the current transitional employee is best suited for a permanent position, without considering other candidates. This assumption is contrary to a central component of the public service reform required by the Fiscal Plan for Puerto Rico,” indicated the director of the entity in charge of the island’s finances, Robert Mujica, in a letter addressed to the governor Pedro Pierluisilegislative presidents Rafael “Tatito” Hernandez and Jose Luis Dalmauas well as the executive director of the Financial Advisory Authority and Fiscal Agency (Aafaf), Omar Marrero.
