The Cordillera Regional Development Council is calling on private sector organizations to submit their nominees for private sector representatives (PSRs).

The RDC is set to reorganize as the term of the local chief executives and PSRs is ending on June 30.

National Econo-mic and Development Authority-Cordillera Director and RDC Vice Chairperson Susan A. Sumbeling said the RDC is calling on the participation of the private sector after it approved the manual of operations containing the updated guidelines for the selection and election of PSRs.

NEDA Asst. Regional Director and RDC Secretary  Stephanie F. Christiansen said PSR nominees must be Filipino citizens, of legal age, with at least three-year proven track record in socio-economic development in the region, and must not hold any government position.

“The nominee’s track record should be related to the sector and implemented in the province/city being represented for a least three years, and must be able to execute the functions and responsibilities expected of an RDC-PSR.

The revised Manual of Operations requires the nominees to submit certification of residence, certification of no pending case, and National Bureau of Investigation clearance.

Ferdinand Gonzales, PSR to the Committee on Development Administration and Good Governance, said nominees are expected to secure clearance from the local government where they reside whether they are applying for sectoral or geographic PSR.

The RDC comprises of 14 PSRs who sit as representatives to its six sectoral committees, one representing the labor sector and seven as geographic representatives of the six provinces and Baguio City.

The new set of PSRs will serve until 2025, following the elective term of government officials.

The RDC is accepting nominee submissions through the NEDA. – Press release
