The DOJ-National Prosecution Service start today its three-day session on Performance Governance System (PGS) to institutionalize transformational reforms in the National Prosecution Service (NPS) in line with the policies of good governance, transparency and accountability.
The PGS, a strategy management tool, will “help the NPS operate to make efforts more sustainable and more responsive to the public.”
Justice Secretary Emmanuel L. Caparas expects PGS to deliver transformative initiatives in the NPS.
“I am confident that with PGS in place, NPS will be able to identify institutional improvements that can enhance performance,” Secretary Caparas underscored.
Prosecutor General Claro A. Arellano, in his welcome message, trusts that PGS would be a rapid framework for reformations in the NPS.
“I hope this session would ignite great beginnings of PGS within the NPS,” PG Arellano further stressed.
The session will specifically determine strategic goals and initiatives and the development of scorecard, among others.
The activity is attended by Regional Prosecutors and Administrative Officers from the various Prosecution Offices nationwide, senior officials from the DOJ-NPS and Directors of the different support services of the DOJ as members of the Technical Working Group (TWG).
The PGS was initiated by the National Prosecution Service and the Planning and Management Service in partnership with the European Union-Philippine Justice Support Programme II (EPJUST II).
