Organization

The PRLS Office of the Service Director supervises the entire management operations, organizes Mandate-relevant activities, evaluates the works of the divisions, oversees legislative analyses and legislative briefs, facilitates legislative talks and workshops, initiates stakeholder’s partnerships, and manages its virtual presence. It has two divisions that carry and deliver specific focal service areas.

Due to tremendous cuts in the PRLS budget for the year 2022, a huge decrease in the job positions and corresponding salary grades was inevitable. And almost 8-10 technical and administrative staff were laid off.
