The virtual awards rites for the 2020 and 2021 Search for Outstanding Government Workers will be held at a later date to make way for the nomination process. 

The Search recognizes outstanding contributions of national or local impact, and display of exemplary behavior adhering to Republic Act No. 6731 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards of Public Officials and Employees. The Presidential Lingkod Bayan, CSC Pagasa, and Dangal ng Bayan awards are the highest honors a civil servant may receive in his or her career.
