The Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA), a non-government organization advocating good governance as a shared responsibility, conferred the Governance Commission for GOCCs (GCG) last June 6, 2014 with the Silver Trailblazer Award for accomplishing the Compliance Stage in ISA’s program for institutionalizing its Performance Governance System (PGS).

The PGS program consists of four stages: Initiation, Compliance, Proficiency and Institutionalization. Through the PGS, the organization’s vision is translated into specific and quantifiable strategies and time-bound commitments with the objective of realizing breakthrough results. GCG presented its plans and accomplishments during the revalida to a panel headed by Mr. Rex C. Drilon II of ISA and consisted of the following members: Hon. Cesar B. Bautista (ISA), Mr. Ruy Y. Moreno (National Competitiveness Council), Mr. Arthur Florentin (Center for Innovation, Change, and Productivity), Ms. Evelyn R. Singson (ISA), Mr. Edgardo Morada (Fellowship of Christians in Government), and Dr. Francisco Magno (Jesse Robredo Institute, De La Salle University). The Governance Commission aims on completing the program and obtaining the Institutionalization Certification by 2016.

GCG Chairman Cesar L. Villanueva, together with Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima and Commissioners Ma. Angela E. Ignacio and Rainier B. Butalid, received the Heart Medallion and Silver Trailblazer Award from ISA Chairman Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao during GCG’s 3rd year Anniversary Celebration of the GOCC Governance Act of 2011. The Silver Governance Trailblazer award is granted to government agencies that garnered a score of 8.5 or higher during the public revalida or performance report.

The public can view the Governance Commission’s strategy map and performance scorecard at www.gcg.gov.ph, which shows how the agency plans to raise the service delivery and financial performance standards of GOCCs and contribute more effectively to the President’s agenda of inclusive growth and development. 

Currently, the Governance Commission is also rolling out its own program for institutionalizing an equivalent performance governance system in GOCCs known as the Performance Evaluation System (PES) for GOCCs.
