In Region 5, NIA has a total personnel complement of 270 as of December 31, 2017. Below in tabulated form, is the breakdown. This number, however, does not include Contracts of Service and Job Orders. The implementation of the Rationalization Plan, in Region 5, has greatly affected our performance due to a very limited manpower. Be that as it may, Region 5 continued to strive to achieve an acceptable performance to maintain its stature to be one of NIA’s performing Regions.
