Civil Service Commission at 113

Established under Public Law No. 5, An Act for the Establishment and Maintenance of Our Efficient and Honest Civil Service in the Philippine Island in 1900, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) is the central personnel agency of the Philippine government. One of the three independent constitutional commissions with adjudicative responsibility in the national government structure, it is also tasked to render final arbitration on disputes and personnel actions on Civil Service matters.

The CSC was reorganized into a Bureau in 1905.The 1935 Philippine Constitution then firmly established the merit system as the basis for employment in government. In 1959, Republic Act 2260, the Civil Service Law, converted the Bureau of Civil Service into the Civil Service Commission (CSC) with department status. In 1975, Presidential Decree (PD) No. 807, the Civil Service Decree of the Philippines, redefined the role of the Commission. It was reorganized under PD No. 181 dated September 24, 1972, and again reorganized under Executive Order No. 181 dated November 21, 1986. With the new Administrative Code of 1987 (EO 292), the Commission is constitutionally mandated to promote morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness, progressiveness, and courtesy in the Civil Service.

In celebration of its 113th Anniversary, the CSC is proud to honor the men and women of the Philippine government this September. The highlight of the Anniversary is the Honor Awards Rites that will be held to confer the Presidential Lingkod Bayan, Dangal ng Bayan, and CSC Pagasa awards on deserving state workers from various branches of government. The Presidential Lingkod Bayan Award is given to a group or an individual whose exceptional contribution resulting from an idea or performance had nationwide impact on public interest. The Dangal ng Bayan Award is given to an individual for performance of extraordinary act or public service and consistent demonstration of exemplary ethical behavior on the basis of the norms of conduct provided under Republic Act No. 6713, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees. The Pagasa Award is granted to an individual or group for outstanding contributions that directly benefit more than one department of government under certain standards.

The CSC has lined up activities to promote good will and solidarity among state workers, including a Fun Run that will officially commence the Anniversary celebration and the Government Choral Competition that will feature the best government chorals nationwide. Aside from these, the CSC is eager to pursue innovative and lasting changes in the bureaucracy. By championing human resource management and organizational development, the CSC is upholding public service excellence and good governance. With its core purpose of ''Gawing lingkod bayani ang bawat kawani,'' the CSC continues to mold the best workforce that will move the government forward. Being a lingkod bayani should be the mark of any government official or employee. That's why this year's theme is ''Tatak Lingkod Bayani: Isabuhay, Ipagmalaki, at Ipagbunyi,'' enjoining all public servants to carry the seal of being a servant-hero anywhere they go. As the CSC works towards this goal, it salutes the efforts of state workers in upholding a responsive, accessible, courteous, and effective public service.

We congratulate the Civil Service Commission headed by its Chairman, Francisco T. Duque III, MD, MSc, and its Commissioners, other Officers and Staff, on the occasion of its 113th Anniversary, and wish them all the best and success in all their endeavors. CONGRATULATIONS AND MABUHAY! s
