The Civil Service Commission (CSC) welcomed the results of a recent national survey where it ranked 9th among the most trusted, and 10th among the most approved government agencies.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles expressed his gratitude to the Filipino public for trusting the agency as it performs its mandate as the central human resource agency of the Philippine government.

“Isang karangalan para sa CSC ang mapabilang sa pinagkakatiwalaan at sinasang-ayunang institusyon ng gobyerno. Makakaasa ang sambayanan na ating iingatan ang tiwalang ito at pag-iibayuhin pa ang ating mga ginagawang programa at serbisyo tungo sa mas mahusay na serbisyo sibil ng bansa,” said Chairperson Nograles.

As of 10:00 a.m. today, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) National Computer Emergency Response Team (NCERT) has informed the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Integrated Records Management Office that the CSC system and database were not breached or attacked.

As the central personnel agency of the government, the CSC is mindful that it handles sensitive data on a daily basis, including personal information, appointment records, and the like, in fulfilment of its mandate to provide services and programs on human resource management.

The CSC recognizes that the institution must always be in a defensive position to protect itself from cyber threats by ensuring that our information technology (IT) systems are secure and the necessary infrastructure is in place to protect sensitive personal data from cyber attacks, such as identity theft and phishing scams.

Rest assured that the CSC takes this matter seriously and with utmost urgency, and will cooperate with the DICT and other relevant government agencies to investigate this report. The CSC remains committed to protecting personal data and upholding privacy rights while promoting IT awareness and maximizing technology in the workplace.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) urged government servants to draw inspiration from Filipino war veterans’ stories of patriotism and nationalism as the nation celebrates the 81st “Araw ng Kagitingan” or Day of Valor.

In his video greeting posted 10 April 2023, CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles enjoined the 1.8 million lingkod bayan nationwide to draw inspiration from the fallen heroes’ selfless acts of upholding the nation’s interest over and above their own.

He cited Jose Abad Santos, a civil servant who rose from the ranks to become the fifth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines, for his legacy of patriotism by refusing to disclose information to the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II despite being taken captive and facing execution.

Complaints and appeals which are non-compliant with the technical requirements of the 2017 Rules on Administrative Cases in the Civil Service (RACCS) may be dismissed by the Civil Service Commission’s (CSC) Assistant Commissioner for Legal.

The CSC released Resolution No. 2300030, promulgated on 13 January 2023, which designates the Assistant Commissioner for Legal to issue orders dismissing administrative cases found to be defective based on technical grounds provided in the 2017 RACCS, or the rules of procedure for handling disciplinary and non-disciplinary administrative cases lodged in the CSC.

The rule is in response to the increasing number of complaints and appeals found to be defective and dismissible due to the failure of concerned parties to observe and strictly comply with the requirements. This would allow the Commission to focus on resolving cases based on the merits, thus streamlining the process and leading to speedier disposition of administrative cases.

The rating can be generated thru the Online Civil Service Examination Result Generation System (OCSERGS) at found on the CSC website. All examinees, whether they passed or failed the test, can use the system.
