The Civil Service Commission (CSC) urges government agencies to review and revisit their systems and procedures for the purpose of re-engineering, if deemed necessary, as Republic Act No. 11032 mandates faster and more efficient transactions in public agencies.

R.A No. 11032 or “An Act Promoting Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery (EODB-EGSD Act), Amending for the Purpose Republic Act No. 9485 Otherwise Known as the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) of 2007, and for Other Purposes,” signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, on 28 May 2018 prescribes shortened processing periods in business and non-business transactions: three (3) working days for simple transactions, seven (7) working days for complex transactions, and 20 working days for highly technical application/transactions.

Leaders in management training, life coaching, human resource management and organizational development spearheads the 2018 Public Sector Human Resource Symposium which will be held at the SMX Davao Convention Center from July 18 to 20, 2018.

Close to 2,500 HR professionals from government, the private sector, and member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will attend the event. With the theme, “Achieving Breakthrough Results through Strategic HR,” this year’s plenary and concurrent sessions highlight concepts, perspectives, and insights in achieving breakthrough results that impact agency operations and delivery of excellent public service.
