The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warns the public against unscrupulous individuals engaged in a money-making scheme using the name of the Commision.  
We have received reports that certain individuals who pretend to be officers of the CSC are calling government employees to inform them that an administrative case has been filed against them before the Commission. These government employees are then instructed to pay a certain amount of money in order to settle said administrative case.  
The public is advised not to fall for such scam. Please immediately report such activities to the CSC through the:  
Office for Legal Affairs

4th Quarter issue of the Civil Service Reporter for 2019
Posted January 15, 2020

 

FROM THE CHAIRPERSON’S DESK:

Remembering our Filipino values this Yuletide season  

We have longed for this time of the year when we can wind down, celebrate a year’s worth of achievements, reflect on our deeds, and be simply grateful for everything. The CSC joins you in all these activities brought by the Yuletide season. 

We hope that, amid the festivities, we can help each Filipino take time to remember our values as a nation. Our short feature on public service values is coupled with highlighted quotes from some of the nation’s Outstanding Public Servants to inspire civil servants and the aspiring ones. We also urge citizens to nominate for the next year’s Search to recognize outstanding contributions to the public service. 

Driven by our commitment to the continuous improvement of public service to Filipino people, we deliver the good news of CSC’s submission of its updated Citizen’s Charter to the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) in compliance with the Republic Act No. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act (EODB EGSD)

Stories about our active participation in the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW), and the laws and policies against sexual violence highlight how we Filipinos value women in our society. These stories also underscore CSC’s steadfast commitment toward women empowerment and gender equality. 

To inspire government agencies to continually transform HR practices and systems, we have included in this issue HR articles featuring CSI’s 4th quarter Leadership Series, Green HRM forum, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ PRIME-HRM journey, and CSC’s message to local chief executives. 

These, among other stories, can be found in this issue and we hope you enjoy the read. 

We are deeply grateful for your continuous support. As we bid this year farewell, let me, on behalf of the CSC, extend to you our warm greetings of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The CPro is a program offered by the Civil Service Commission as an alternative mode of satisfying the qualification standards for division chief and executive/ managerial positions where the educational requirement is a Master’s Degree, provided that the other requirements are also met.  It is designed to equip government leaders/managers with the five (5) leadership competencies,  such as Thinking Strategically and Creatively, Leading Change, Building Collaborative, Inclusive Working Relationships, Managing Performance and Coaching for Results, and Creating and Nurturing High Performing Organization,  as a means towards enhancing their effectiveness in leading their respective organizations.  

Candidates for the RPL Track are expected to have already acquired the targeted competencies through previous real-life work experiences.    

B. QUALIFICATION / ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Applicants for the program shall be considered based on the following priorities: 

Priority 1:  Those who are designated as Officer-in-Charge to Division Chief or equivalent positions due to lack of master’s degree;

Priority 2:    Those being considered for the Division Chief or Executive/ Managerial positions;  and

Priority 3:   Those in the private sector planning to establish a career in the public sector.

C. WHERE TO FILE APPLICATION FORMS

E. SCOPE OF PRE-QUALIFYING TEST AND COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT STAGE

A pre-qualifying test shall be administered to registrants to determine who among them could directly proceed to competency assessment.  The Pre-Qualifying Test (PQT) consists of the following:

1. Multiple Choice (MC) is a two-hour general ability test consisting of 100 multiple choice-items.  The test covers the five (5) leadership and management competency areas, namely: Thinking Strategically and Creatively (TSC), Leading Change (LC), Building Collaborative, Inclusive Working Relationships (BCIWR), Managing Performance and Coaching for Results (MPCR), and Creating and Nurturing High Performing Organization (CNHPO),  with 20 percent weight allocation for each competency area.

2. Essay Test (ET) -  is a 2-hour test consisting of five (5) questions relating to leadership and management competencies.  The following criteria shall  be adapted in rating the test:  a)  Organization/Cohesiveness (30%); b) Clarity and Conciseness (20%);  and c) Substance (50%).

The result of PQT shall be released on January 31, 2020 for Batch 5 and May 4, 2020 for Batch 6. 

E.2  PORTFOLIO BUILDING

Candidates who will pass the Pre-Qualifying Test shall proceed to the next phase of the program which is a 90-day Portfolio Building.  They will attend an orientation which includes a module on Portfolio Building in order to be   equipped with the necessary concepts and skills to build portfolios of competencies that were demonstrated in the course of their previous work experience.

 In building their portfolio, they need to cite instances from their work history in which the targeted competencies were displayed. Evidence manifesting the targeted competency should be recent, or within the last three (3) years.

E.3  COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT STAGE

The CPro candidates shall be subjected to competency assessment which is composed of three (3) parts with the following weight allocation:

1. Written Test (10%)

To establish conceptual grounding of the candidate on the competency being assessed.

2. Portfolio Review (PR)

To establish the candidate’s capability to demonstrate the leadership competencies in the workplace with appropriate sets of evidence through the portfolio of actual work experiences with appropriate sets of evidence that demonstrate the leadership competencies.

3. Behavioral Event Interview (BEI)

In-depth validation of findings and ratings in the portfolio review of the candidate. This interview allows the assessors to further probe on the competencies demonstrated by the candidates. On the other hand, it also allows the candidates to give further details about the sets of evidence presented in the portfolio.

The combined rating for PR and BEI is 90%.

F. CONFERMENT AND ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATE

A candidate, after having successfully passed the assessment on all of the five Leadership Competencies required in this Program,  shall be conferred a Certificate of Leadership and Management.
