The program may be established under the following conditions:

a. The program may be availed of by permanent employees in the government who are holding first or second level positions.

b. A contract shall be drawn by the department or agency and the employees on the manner of repayment for said cash advance. In case of default on the part of the employees to refund the amount advanced by the agency, such payments shall be deducted from any money which may accrue to the employees in the course of their employment.

c. An employee who graduated with academic honors shall not be required to refund the money advanced by the agency as a form of recognition for his exemplary academic performance.

Heads of departments or agencies may also establish their own policies and guidelines.
