Pasig City---To further strengthen its foundation, the newly created Governance Commission on Government-owned-and-controlled Corporations (GCG) under the leadership of Chairman Cesar L. Villanueva, sought the Development Academy of the Philippines’ (DAP) aid to create a corps of development-oriented and highly competent GCG executives capable of fulfilling the GCG’s mandate through the DAP Graduate School of Public and Development Management’s (GSPDM) Executive Development Program (EDP).

The Executive Development Program for GCG was specifically designed to equip GCG executives with strategic skills and knowledge to efficiently and effectively perform their duties which involve managing and monitoring of performance, formulation of policies, and implementing development programs for GOCCs.

EDP modules covered the following areas;
1.) Bureaucracy and the GCG
2.) Dynamics of corporate governance
3.) Service Delivery System of the corporate operations
4.) Performance management of the corporate organizations for the GOCCs
5.) Public Finance-Financial Analysis, Resource Management and Forecasting
6.) Sustainability of Corporate Organizations
7.) Strategic Planning and Development

The roster of EDP faculty included Government Corporate Counsel Raoul C. Creencia, former Civil Service Chairman Corazon Alma G. De Leon, former Presidential Adviser Francisco Raymundo Pimentel-Lukban, PUNLA SA TAO FOUNDATION Vice President and Executive Director Reuel K. Virtucio, DAP-GSPDM Dean Gloria Jumamil-Mercado, GSPDM-IPQ Director Jonas George S. Soriano, DAP Senior Fellow Gabriel Ma. J. Lopez and Government Consultant Ms. Ramonesa R. Ricardo.

The GCG Executives on July 10 presented their final papers as a requisite to completing the program. Notable members of the panel included GCG Chairman Cesar L.Villanueva, GCG Commissioners Rainier B. Butalid and Ma. Angela E. Ignacio, DAP President Antonio D. Kalaw, Jr., DAP-GSPDM Dean Gloria Jumamil-Mercado and other top-management officials of DAP and GCG.

The final papers, considered as major inputs to strategic policy development forthe commission, tackled issues such as privatization, reorganization, appointment of Board of Directors and the labor code for GOCCs.

Thirteen GCG executives successfully completed the program.
