Government employees who work in the local treasury service are required to advance their competencies through the BCLTE or the Basic Competency on Local Treasury Examination. It is offered by the Civil Service Commission and the Department of Finance-Bureau of Local Government Finance.
The main objective of this examination is to create ROE or a Register of Eligibles. From this pool of eligibles, the CSC and the local government can make an appointment to qualified professionals for Local Treasurer and Asst. Treasurer positions as well as other positions related to Financial Services.
Aside from passing the BCLTE, the personnel must also meet the qualifications and eligibility requirements appropriate for the position. The first BCLTE was given in December 2015 and any personnel who are presently handling the position at the Bureau of Local Government Finance can take the examination.
