OSM 2020 in Review

Year 2020 for OSM began with a very strong start, as it was able to prepare the Basic Governance Documents in preparation for the PGS Proficiency Stage. However, due to the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic to the Department, the PGS implementation along the DSWD Strategy 2028 was significantly affected.

The Champions of the Strategy through the PGS Core Team and the Multi-Sectoral Governance Coalition or MSGC was established. Heading now the MSGC is one of the stalwarts of evidence-based management - Dr. Celia Reyes of the Philippine Institute for Development Studies.

To ensure the alignment of the DSWD Response and Recovery Plan or RRP to the current strategy, the OSM conducted an on-line assessment focused on the plan design or elements and cohesiveness, content - referring to the alignment with the Department Strategic Focus and COVID-19 National Action Plan, and effectiveness or pertaining to plan implementation.

Its review was also one of the case studies presented in the Institute for Solidarity in Asia or ISA’s Skills Lab Webinar Series on the PGS Strategy Review alongside PGS Trailblazers and Palladium Hall of Famers.
