The Civil Service Commission-CAR announced the 2022 Search for Outstanding Government Workers in the Cordillera has started.
The annual search for public service exemplars is mandated under the 1987 Philippine Constitution and is undertaken through the CSC Honor Awards Program (HAP). It aims to recognize and reward individuals and groups of individuals who have rendered outstanding contributions and achievements, and have displayed exemplary conduct and ethical behavior in public service.
Nominations for the search are now accepted nationwide through CSC regional and field offices where nomination forms, details, and other relevant details on the search may be obtained, or from the HAP Secretariat at the CSC central office at Batasang Pambansa Complex, Quezon City.
Downloadable HAP forms and guidelines are available at the CSC website:www.csc.gov.ph.
Heads of agencies are also strongly encouraged to automatically nominate to the search their officials or employees who were awardee/s under their agency’s Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (Praise), pursuant to CSC Memorandum Circular 02, s. 2019.
Posthumous nominations may also be made for public servants who died in the line of duty or in the pursuit of their official duties and responsibilities as civil servants.
Government agencies have until March 31 to submit to the CSC regional or provincial offices nominations of agency officials and employees in any or all of the three award categories in the search: Presidential Lingkod Bayan Award (individual or group); Dangal ng Bayan Award (individual only); and CSC Pag-asa Award (individual or group).
Previous awardees can still be nominated to the same or to another award after five years from the conferment of his/her award, provided that the nomination is based on new set of accomplishments and/or exemplary norms/behavior manifested.
Nominees who are recipients of national awards given by private organizations/institutions shall be automatically considered for the search.
Any individual or organization with extensive knowledge of the performance and behavior of the official, employee or group/team may nominate.
While agencies are expected to nominate their exemplars, there is no limit as to the number of nominees which the agency may submit in any of the three award categories.
Nominations must be approved and endorsed by the office, provincial or regional Praise Committee to the department/agency head which in turn shall endorse the nomination to the HAP Secretariat through the CSC field or regional offices.
The conferment of Honor awards aims to motivate or inspire government employees to improve the quality of their performance and instill deeper involvement in public service.
The search culminates with the recognition and conferment of awards to deserving public servants during the celebration of the anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service in September.
