Background

Every year, the Philippine civil service commemorates the enactment of Public Law No. 5, “An Act for the Establishment and Maintenance of an Efficient and Honest Civil Service in the Philippine Islands” on 19 September 1900. The bureaucracy also celebrates the achievements and contributions of the men and women in government who uphold the country’s societal goals and over-all vision. 

Thus, civil servants are enjoined to actively take part in this anniversary celebration. This year’s activities are meant to remind us of improving ourselves and the quality of our service for the benefit of the Filipino people. The anniversary celebration is also anchored on one of AmBisyon Natin 2040’s key areas for development planning, which is building a high-trust society.  

Theme 

As the premiere human resource institution of the Philippine Government, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) continues to hold activities that inspire and motivate individuals, build teams and networks, promote solidarity among government workers, and uphold public service values. 

These are principles that guide the CSC in spearheading the 119th Anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service with the theme: 

Civil Service at 119: Upholding Integrity and Building a High-Trust Society 

The following activities shall be undertaken at the national, regional, and agency levels, while all CSC Regional Offices (CSC ROs) are to conduct parallel activities in their respective regions:

1. Display of Anniversary Banner in government offices’ facade, digital billboards, websites, or social media accounts 

All government agencies are encouraged to post the official anniversary tarpaulin on conspicuous areas in their respective offices, or post the digital version on their digital billboards or social media accounts. 

Below are the files and specifications for PCSA promotional materials. Agencies may use the layered file to customize their display and/or add text, logo, etc. However, kindly retain the branding design to ensure consistency on all PCSA materials.
