In contrary, the top 3 lowest are offices under the Office of the Governor which includes IASO, Population and Nutrition with only 14 in total.

 

 

The increasing number of vacant positions from 2014 to 2016 is attributed to the slow filling up of plantilla-funded positions on the same years. This high number of vacant positions in 2016 however dropped to 239 on the succeeding year. Based on the latest data, the office with the most number of vacant funded positions are Provincial Engineering Office (PEO) with 30 followed by Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Hospital (NVPH) with 28 and Provincial General Services Office (PGSO) with 25. Similarly, offices including Provincial Government and Staff (Exec.), Information Technology Division (IT),  Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (PDRRMO), Internal Audit Services Division (IASO) and Provincial Social Welfare Office (PSWDO) have only 1 vacant-funded positions each.
