DSWD caps 71st year anniversary celebration with awards on quality service
Posted 03 March 2022
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) will be presented with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 Certification for its Quality Management System (QMS) and the Silver Trailblazer Award for its Performance Governance Scorecard (PGS) journey during the culminating activity of the Department’s 71st year founding anniversary on February 28.
Through the PGS and with the guidance of the Multisector Governance Council (MSGC) and the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA), the Department was able to increase the number of self-sufficient Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) households from 300,000 in 2019 to more than 800,000. Furthermore, the Department’s centers and residential care facilities (CRCFs) with Center of Excellence Status also increased from 14 to 30.
The awards summarize the Department’s continuous pursuit for quality public service delivery. Under the leadership of Secretary Rolando Joselito D. Bautista, the Department revived the PGS, which is a holistic and collaborative framework for designing, executing, monitoring, and sustaining roadmaps to reforms in the Department to improve the delivery of its services.

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.
