About the PCSA

The annual PCSA celebration commemorates the signing of Public Law No. 5 or An Act for the Establishment and Maintenance of an Efficient and Honest Civil Service in the Philippine Islands on 19 September 1900.

The celebration is also pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 1050, series of 1997 signed by the late President Fidel Valdez Ramos declaring the month of September as the Civil Service Month.

The PCSA has a 10-year overarching theme, Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant-Heroes, which reflects the collective experience of the government workforce in the new normal, and in pushing for digital transformation and innovations to uphold public service excellence and continuity.

The 123rd PCSA has a variety of exciting activities scheduled, such as the 2023 Public Sector Human Resource Symposium, 2023 Awards Rites for Outstanding Government Workers, Government Online Career Fair, Plant-Run, Golf for a Cause, Bloodletting Activity, Virtual Recognition Program for Contact Center ng Bayan Partner Agencies, and PRIME HRM Awards.
