The Department of Agrarian Reform in Bicol has maintained its Level II Accreditation Status for the Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) after a successful revalidation by the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
During the Commitment Building Ceremony held by the CSC in its regional office, April 8, 2014, the DAR together with other national agencies, local government units, government-owned or controlled corporations, state universities & colleges, has been awarded with the Certificate of Revalidation and Certificate of Appreciation by no less than Regional Director Cecilia R. Nieto & Atty. Daisy P. Bragais, Director III of CSC Region V. OIC-Personnel Officer Gil M. Montales represented the DAR V and accepted the Certificates.
The simple ceremony was highlighted with the signing of the Memorandum of Commitment between the Level II Accreditation Status holders and the Civil Service Commission.
The accreditation grants the authority to DAR to take final action on appointments by virtue of CSC Resolution No. 1301358 promulgated on July 2, 2013. PRIME-HRM is a program of the CSC to continuously capacitate agencies in the performance of their human resource management functions, recognize best practices in the various areas of HRM, and serve as a venue for exchange and development of expertise in HRM in the Philippine public service.
All holders of the Level II Accreditation Status, including the DAR, may further aspire to qualify for Level III – Deregulated Status by initiating innovations/enhancements or remarkable development in HR management to eventually qualify for the Center for Excellence/Seal of Excellence recognition given by the Civil Service Commission.
Way to go DAR Bicol! Off to Level III!
