Benchmarking Report

Posted 07 July 2022

While the DSWD achieved PGS Proficiency, Third Party Audit results by the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA) show that there is a need to strengthen not only its OSM, but also its MSGC. This is needed in order for the Department to sustain its efforts along the Strategy. Further, the MSGC may also be replicated in the

regional offices to widen the external stakeholder support for the DSWD, to help in

the attainment of its strategic position.

The Benchmarking with the Philippine Children's Medical Center and Bureau of Customs - Port of Cebu intends to strengthen the selection, composition, structure and identification of projects of the National MSGC to help contribute to the Department’s breakthrough results and sustain the strategy and the PGS implementation; and to guide the DSWD in localizing its MSGCs at the Field Office level.

This Benchmarking session is not only a response to the recommendations of the Third Party Audit, but also serves as a continuation to the learnings harvested by the Department during its Annual Scorecard Summit with the Bureau of Customs (BoC), particularly on the management of MSGC projects.
