In line with the commemoration of the 121st Philippine Civil Service Anniversary, the said event is the culmination of its month-long celebration, with the theme “Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant Heroesโ€. The observance highlighted the thrust and priorities of the agency as reflected in the award winners’ office performances.

Among the four (4) award categories underscored during the event, the PRIME-HRM is the one that answers the need to successfully transform the agencies’ HRM systems. Ultimately, the award mirrors the level of excellence for good governance and efficient public service as reflected in the Offices’ competencies and practices.

Pacing with PRIME-HRM

As emphasized in CSC Resolution No. 2100170, promulgated on February 16, 2021, the DSWD FO X bagged the honor to receive such award by virtue of the findings during the onsite assessment by the CSC RO X conducted on October 30-31, 2021 and the validation conducted by the Human Resource Policies and Standards Office (HRPSO).

With the said assessment and evaluation, it was found and confirmed that the agency has met the PRIME-HRM Level 2- Maturity Indicators in the Systems, Practices, and Competences of the four (4) core HRM Systems: (a) Recruitment, Selection, and Placement; (b) Performance Management; (c) Learning and Development; and (d) Rewards and Recognition.

Among the findings also included the continuous compliance of the Office with the Civil Service Law and rules in its implementation of the other HR programs. Its maintenance of HR records was also part of the commended findings.

Along with the award comes other eight (8) privileges including the authority to approve appointments (subject to post-audit); exemption from Section 96 of the 2017 ORAOHRA, as amended; 50% of appointments issued subject to review by the CSC FOs; 20% discount for the HRMO or one (1) Agency Representative on trainings/conferences conducted by the Civil Service Institute; and 20% discount for the HRMO head or one agency representative in CSC ROsโ€™ training sessions and conferences.

Additionally, the DSWD FO X may now announce its projects and projects bureaucracy-wide through the official CSC website. The agency may also reap other benefits as approved by the Commission in the future.
As the CSC further resolved, the DSWD FO X shall also be entitled to key responsibilities as the PRIME-HRM Bronze Awardee.

Among such responsibilities include maintenance of the status under Level 2 and continue to improve on its HRM systems to meet the indicators of the next higher level.
The agency also bears the duty to comply with the 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions, as amended, and other Civil Service Law and rules in the issuance of appointments and implementation of other HR actions.

The DSWD FO X Regional Director, Ms. Mari-Flor Dollaga Libang, expresses her utmost gratitude while acknowledging the challenges that come with the honor in receiving this award.

โ€œOn behalf of our Secretary Rolando Joselito Bautista, we are grateful that our commitment to meritorious and fair human resource processes is validated and recognized. This PRIME-HRM Bronze Award is owed to my fellow angels in red vest for resiliently serving with utmost integrity and keeping up with necessary development. We pray that by this effort we will be able to inspire those who aspire to join in civil service.”
Onwards with PRIME-HRM

In line with this, the CSC Field Office โ€“ Misamis Oriental shall extend technical assistance to help ensure incessant improvement of the HRM systems in the DSWD FO X.

As the new HRMD Division Head of the DSWD FO X, Ms. Lois Marie Murillo is thrilled to maintain and surpass what the agency has been achieving over the years in the field of streamlining and maximizing its HR efforts.
“We take this award as a reminder of the essence of our duty in upholding our nation in this time of crisis, and drive us to serve with excellence and competence,โ€ Ms. Murillo says.

Ms. Murillo also acknowledges the efforts and leadership of the Division Chief, Ms. Portia G.

DSWD KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP eyes CDD institutionalization in Additional Financing

The additional three-year implementation of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services-National Community-Driven Development Program (KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP) is seeking LGU adoption of its processes and strategy alongside the delivery of community-decided sub-projects to strengthen their pandemic response.

KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP is known for using the Community-Driven Development (CDD) strategy in implementing community projects where people become actively involved in local planning, budgeting, and implementation.

The additional financing will scale up the use of the Disaster Response Operations Modality (DROM) to respond to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other major disasters, and to pursue the institutionalization of CDD in barangay local development planning in partnership with the DILG.

In Region X, 49 municipalities across five provinces will implement NCDDP AF with a target grant of more than PHP600 million for year one. Sub-projects for funding include: capacity building on COVID-19 response and mitigation, establishing or upgrading isolation facilities, water and sanitation facilities, cash-for-work schemes, improvement of rural access roads, procurement of PPEs, and support to community-based livelihood.

A three-year priority list of sub-projects based on the results of the COVID-19 Rapid Damage and Needs Analysis (RDANA) of the barangay will be gradually funded by the municipal LGU as the Program transitions into an LGU-led modality.

The institutionalization of CDD in the local level is being solidified with the integration of CDD elements in the Barangay Development Planning (BDP) Process in partnership with the DILG. By 2023, an enhanced BDP guidelines with harmonized CDD principles and practices will be rolled out to BLGUs.

Over the years, DSWD KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP has demonstrated success in empowering local communities to tackle inadequacies in basic infrastructure and improving welfare in rural areas.

A CDD Bill is currently filed in the 18th Congress that seeks to institutionalize CDD as a national strategy for poverty alleviation and inclusive growth. More local government units across the country have adopted the CDD strategy in their local planning process, seeing the gains of CDD in improved local governance and lasting benefits of the sub-projects.

With the passage of the CDD Bill, the whole of governmentโ€”from national line agencies down to local government units will use participatory mechanisms to implement community-based programs, activities, and projects; facilitating a more inclusive and people-centered development.

In Region X 1,944 sub-projects have been delivered since 2014 in identified poor municipalities, creating opportunities for paid labor during the construction of the sub-projects, and sustained economic activity brought about by better facilities and physical assets in the community.

With the current pandemic, Community-Driven Development should all the more be at the forefront as community priorities are also changing in response to COVID-19.

In 2020, the DROM for COVID-19 response delivered 213 sub-projects worth more than PHP130 million into eight municipalities in Region X, benefiting almost 130,000 households across communities and creating temporary employment for people who suffered income losses due to the pandemic. These projects were supported by the local government unitsโ€™ financial counterparts for the sub-project completion and other logistical support for the Program in their municipality.

The KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP is one of the social protection programs of the DSWD to be fully devolved to LGUs by 2024 in light of the Mandanas Ruling. With the passage of the CDD Bill, a Knowledge and Research Institute (KRI) will become the spiritual successor of the KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP which shall endeavor to improveย the CDD practice in local government units and continue the gains of Community-driven development.

As such, the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) has launched a Face Mask Distribution Project entitled โ€œLibreng Mask Para sa Masa.โ€

The DSWD with the full coordination of the other national government agencies is continuously implementing safety and health protocols in order to minimize the transmission of the COVID-19.
