RPDO is ARMM’s First Accredited Agency


             Civil Service Commission Resolution No. 1101006 dated August 8, 2011 granted the Regional Planning and Development Office-Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (RPDO-ARMM) the authority to take final action on its appointment.

            The CSC Agency Accreditation Program delegates to qualified agencies the authority to take final action on their appointments to positions in the first, second and third levels of the career service including equivalent positions in the non-career service. Hence, appointments issued by accredited agencies are no longer submitted to the Civil Service Commission for approval.

             Amid political instability prevailing in the ARMM, RPDO maintained its integrity in human resource management and development following strictly civil service law and rules. After a series of assessment and monitoring and by initiating best practices in public personnel administration, RPDO has shown its capability to self-manage its human resources.

             RPDO’s accreditation came at the most perfect time when ARMM desperately needs exemplars that will serve as inspiration for others to follow. In a simple but meaningful ceremony attended by RPDO officials and employees, the Certificate of Accreditation was formally handed over by CSC-ARMM Director Resurreccion P. Pueyi to RPDO-ARMM Executive Director Diamadel E. Dumagay.
