PGS Proficiency Audit & Revalida

September-December 2021

Organizations who wish to be certified as PGS Proficient undergo the Proficiency Evaluation Process, a three-pronged assessment composed of the Pre-Audit, the Third-Party Audit, and the Public Revalida, that seeks to validate the functionality of the identified PGS elements.

The hallmark of PGS Proficiency is the presence of emerging breakthrough results through the support of a fully functional Office for Strategy Management (OSM). With a fully functional OSM at helm, cascading to all units and individuals have been completed and refreshed depending on the performance appraisal cycle of the organization, monitoring and reporting has evolved into more meaningful performance assessments, and the strategy has been embedded to day-to-day operations. As such, accomplishments at the unit level and emerging breakthroughs at the enterprise-level are continuously produced.

PGS Core Team Meetings


The PGS Core Team is the Department's champion of the strategy. They are in charge of crafting the Department's Strategic Focus, Strategy Map, Roadmaps, and Governance Scorecards. As part of their role in ensuring that the strategy is operationalized and monitored, a quarterly meeting is held.

MSGC Meetings


The DSWD's reconstituted the Multi-Sector Governance Council (MSGC) as collegial body whose meetings are presided by a Chair or a Vice-Chair whom the MSGC's members have elected through a majority vote among themselves.

The MSGC shall be invited to participate in the DSWD National Management and Development Conference (NMDC) exercise at least once a year and in other activities of the Department relative to strategy execution and agency/office performance monitoring, as may be deemed necessary.

PGS Focal Meetings


The PGS Focal ensures effective implementation of the PGS by ensuring the alignment of office strategic contributions with support services; link the budget into the strategy; and recommend specific action to be undertaken by their respective heads and/or coach monitors in achieving strategic focus and have breakthrough results. For 2021, monthly PGS focal meetings help cascade the commitments and popularize the DSWD Strategy and the PGS technology in the Department.

The Cascading Framework is one of the key elements of the PGS. Cascading is the alignment of lower-level units to the organizational strategy. This requires the formulation of their respective Strategic Contributions supported by a readiness test especially for the Central Office OBS and presentation to and vetting by the EXECOM officers.
