Government officials and employees from various offices nationwide joined the online Zumba organized by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) on 1 September 2023, to kick off the 123rd Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (PCSA) celebration.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles together with Commissioners Aileen Lourdes Lizada and Ryan Alvin Acosta led the online Zumba organized by the CSC Regional Office I as part of the institution’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding the mental and physical well-being of civil servants.

“To the 1.9 million-strong workers of government, a very happy and dynamic 123rd PCSA to all of us. This morning’s activity marks the start of the month-long activities we have rigorously prepared and waited for these past few months. Building upon the success of last year's Online Zumba and Film Showing, in partnership with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), we are once again hosting these events to promote workplace recreation and alleviate the pressures of our work,” said Chairperson Nograles.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) and the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) ensuring the effective implementation of Republic Act (R.A.) No. 11032, or the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018 (EODB EGSD)”, on 31 August 2023 in Diliman, Quezon City.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles and ARTA Secretary Ernesto Perez, together with CSC Commissioners Ryan Alvin Acosta and Aileen Lourdes Lizada and ARTA Undersecretaries Gerald G. Divinagracia and Geneses R. Abot, led the ceremonial signing of the landmark agreement aimed to improve anti-red tape reforms and foster an environment conducive to ease of doing business in the government sector.

“Today’s MOA signing is more than just a symbolic event because it has far-reaching implications in the realm of public service. The CSC and ARTA are tasked under the EODB EGSD to ensure that we promote integrity, accountability, and establish best practices to prevent corruption in the government. This event, finally, seals the deal between the CSC and ARTA to ultimately delineate the functions and mandates of the offices under R.A. No. 11032,” explained Chairperson Nograles.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) launched the amended Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9242 or the Philippine Tropical Fabrics (PTF) Law on 30 August 2023 in Quezon City.

The legislation mandates the use of PTF for the official uniforms of government officials and employees.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles spearheaded the occasion, accompanied by fellow members of the Inter-Agency Technical Working Group (TWG), which includes representatives from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and the Department of Agriculture (DA). The event also enjoyed the presence of CSC Commissioners Aileen Lourdes Lizada and Ryan Alvin Acosta, along with representatives and officials from private stakeholders, demonstrating their solidarity and endorsement of the initiative.

Government officials and employees may avail of special treats and discounts on purchases, accommodations, and activities this September in celebration of the 123rd Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (PCSA).

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles announced that the CSC has partnered with various private establishments to offer exclusive rates and freebies for the 1.9 million active civil servants as well as retired employees in recognition of their hard work and commitment to public service.

“Inihanda natin itong special treats bilang pasasalamat sa ating mga kawani. Talaga namang hindi matatawaran ang inyong mga sakripisyo upang matugunan ang pangangailangan at mabigyan ng dekalidad na serbisyo ang publiko anumang oras. Salamat po sa inyo,” said Chairperson Nograles.
