CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – The Civil Service Commission (CSC) Regional Office 3 is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Search for Outstanding Public Officials and Employees.
State workers may be nominated in any of the three categories namely the Presidential Lingkod Bayan, Pag-asa and Dangal ng Bayan awards. The Presidential Lingkod Bayan is conferred to an individual or group for his or their extraordinary contributions resulting from an idea or performance which had a nationwide impact on public interest, security and patrimony.
The contribution may be a suggestion, an innovation, an invention or superior accomplishment, CSC Regional Director Myrna Macatangay said. The Pag-asa prize is given to an individual or group for his or their outstanding contributions resulting from an idea or performance which directly benefitted more than one department of government while the Dangal ng Bayan award is bestowed to a person in recognition of his/her performance of extraordinary act or public service and consistent demonstration of exemplary ethical behavior on the basis of his/her observance of the eight norms of behavior under Republic Act 6713 otherwise known as the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees, Macatangay added. Nominees must be in government service at the time of the nomination.
Posthumous nominations are allowed provided that the person/s to be nominated died while still actively working for the state. The nomination should be filed within a year from the death of the official/s or employee/s.
They should also have obtained at least a “Very Satisfactory” rating or its equivalent in the last two performance evaluation periods and have never been found guilty of an administrative or criminal offense involving moral turpitude.
A group may be nominated even if there are members who fail to meet squarely the mentioned qualifications but these members, however, shall be excluded from the grant of award should the team be chosen as a recipient. Nomination forms and the requirements may be downloaded in the commission’s official website –www.csc.gov. ph.
