A. Honor Awards Program (HAP)
The Honor Awards Program (HAP) is the rewards and recognition program of the Civil Service Commission. HAP recognizes and rewards the best of the bureaucracy through its Annual Search for Outstanding Public Servants. It highlights the achievements and contributions of men and women in the government exemplifying modern heroism.
The conferment of honor awards aims to motivate or inspire government employees to improve the quality of their performance and instill deeper involvement in public service.

The award is categorized to Presidential Lingkod Bayan, Dangal ng Bayan, and CSC Pagasa Award.
