CSC explains Ease of Doing Business Act to gov’t workers

BONTOC, Mountain Province, Sept. 26 (PIA) -- Public servants in the province are one with the nation’s government  bureaucracy  in celebrating 119th anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service this September with various activities.

 

The Civil Service Field Office – Mountain Province (CSCFO-MP) launched the month-long celebration   on September 2 during the first Monday flag raising ceremony hosted by the CSCFO-MP, Mountain Province State Polytechnic College (MPSPC) and the Army Reserve Command.

Director Anita Verina T. Paredes presented the 12 salient features of the implementing guidelines of the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery or the EODB EGSD Act of 2018 which was already approved in April 15 and is already effective.
 
The EODB EGSD Act aims to establish efficient service delivery, prevent graft and corruption, reduce red tape, and expedite business and non-business transactions in government. It also provides for rules, tools and mechanisms designed to improve frontline service efficiency and ensure customer satisfaction.

The salient features include the coverage of the EODB EGSD Act which applies to all government offices and agencies including local government units, government-owned and controlled corporations, and other government instrumentalities, whether located in the Philippines or abroad, that provide services covering business and non-business related transactions as defined in this Act.
 
Other key components include the Citizen’s Charter wherein posted information should have a comprehensive and uniform checklist of requirements, Zero Contact Transactions, 3-7-20 Day Processing Time, Grant of Automatic Extension, Anti-Red Tape Authority, Anti-Red Tape Unit in the CSC, Report Card Survey, Administrative Jurisdiction and Penalties, Violations and Persons Liable, and Implementing Rules and Regulations.

MPSPC President  Dr. Rexton F. Chakas  also briefly explained the meaning of the CSC anniversary theme of “Civil Service @119: Upholding Integrity and Building a High-Trust Society.”

A high trust society, he said, is one when the behavior of the population towards each other is predictable – meaning  people  follow broadly understood norms of behavior supported by rule of law.

During the launching, Provincial Administrator Amador P. Batay-an led the   civil servants in the province in reaffirming and renewing their commitment as public servants.

Government employees  in Mountain  Province reaffirm and renew their commitment as public servants during the launching of the 119th Philippine Civil Service anniversary  in the capital town of Bontoc. 

Other lined up activities included a tree planting the Supang-Data provincial road in the municipality of Sabangan and trekking for a cause on September 20 spearheaded by the Provincial Council of Personnel Officers. Proceeds of the activity would be given as financial assistance to patients undergoing dialysis at the Bontoc General Hospital. . (JBS-PIA CAR, Mt. Province)
