The Civil Service Commission (CSC) yesterday recognized government offices which best complied with the provisions of the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA), a law which aims to improve frontline services.  The activity, “ARTAnized: The ARTA Dekada Celebration”, highlighted the accomplishments in the 10-year implementation of ARTA.

“It is quite overwhelming to see today a bright future for the Philippine public service, as we are now accompanied by a number of public service giants or those who have shown passion in complying with the Anti-Red Tape Act—the ARTAnized offices and agencies, that is how we call them,” CSC Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala said in her keynote message.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has conferred the Local Treasurer Eligibility on 1,234 individuals out of 6,521 examinees of the Basic Competency on Local Treasury Examination (BCLTE) held last November 26, 2017.

Janine Lynn Ochia from Northern Mindanao (Region X) topped the exam with a 92.78 rating, followed by Alvim Batol from SOCCKSARGEN (Region XII) with a 91.67 rating. Remar Doromal also from Region XII and Kevin Pumares from Ilocos (Region I), tied in third place with a 90.28 rating.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) reminds the public that aside from the traditional pen-and-paper mode, the Career Service Examination can also be taken through a computerized mode—CSC Computerized Examination (COMEX).

The CSC recently released the dates for the COMEX at CSC Central Office and Regional Offices. The CSC Central Office will conduct COMEX-Professional level on February 6 and 13, April 3, 17, and 24, May 8 and 22, and June 5 and 19. The Sub-Professional level will be conducted on January 30 and May 29.
