The Civil Service Commission has presented the Dangal ng Bayan Award (regional level) to two employees of the Commission on Audit for “extraordinary act of public service under Republic Act 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employes.
Eyren Yulde of Cluster 3, Corporate Government Sector and Benito R. Ong of the Information Technology Office Systems and Technical Services Sector received their award during virtual ceremonies held at the COA Commission Proper Board room.
The two outstanding COA employes have been automatically included in the shortlist of nominees for the Dangal ng Bayan Award in the National Level.
COA Chairman Michael Aguinaldo lauded Yulde ang Ong for being honored by the CSC, saying that their feat served as an inspiration for all audit agency employees and other public servants to strive to excel “in the performance of their duties with utmost honesty and integrity.”
“Their efforts showed a great sense of accountability and public service,” Aguinaldo said.
Yulde was recognized for her audit efforts which contribute significantly to the achievement of the Commission’s constitutional mandate to safeguard government funds and properties.
On the other hand, the CSC cited Ong for “leveraging the use of Information Technology (IT) in enhancing the Commission’s services which eventually resulted to savings.”
Meanwhile, former COA Commissioner Jose A. Fabia was among the 2020 retirees and loyalty awardees recognized by the audit body during its virtual l recognition program held recently.
The Commission’s recognition of its retirees and loyalty awardees highlighted a simple COA Christmas celebration centered on the theme “Pasko 2020: Pag-ibig at Pag-asa sa Gitna ng Pandemya.”
As a safety precaution in this time of pandemic, the Commission held the traditional Christmas greetings to the Commission Proper through a virtual ceremony and omitted the annual Christmas lunch with low-salaried employees.
