PAGADIAN CITY, Nov. 18 (PIA) – Deputy Regional Director for Administration Sr. Supt. Randolf R. Delfin of the Police Regional Office (PRO9) on Monday, announced that PRO9 obtained a GOOD rating from the audit team in the implementation of the second stage of Performance Governance System (PGS) compliance.

The PGS is a performance management and measurement tool adopted by the Philippine National Police which ensures the continuity of change and transformation and giving the PNP a firm grip on the roadmap that is simple, strategic and long-term.

The PGS is divided into four (4) stages, namely: initiation, compliance, proficiency, and institutionalization.

Delfin made the announcement during the exit conference with the chiefs of police (COP) of Zamboanga del Sur held at the conference room, Camp Abelon, this city.

He lauded the PRO9 for obtaining an overall rating of 93.33 with an equivalent adjectival rating of 4 best practices and 2 good practices during the compliant stage.

Although they obtained satisfactory grades from the national audit team, Delfin encouraged all PNP personnel to improve their performance. For the PNP to succeed and to attain its vision of making the entire police force as highly capable, effective and credible organization, they should double their efforts and improve their ratings.

The PNP personnel should exert more effort to attain a very satisfactory, if not outstanding grades, according to the police chief.

During the conference, the PGS evaluation process was presented by the audit team to monitor progress of implementation and execution of the program towards the attainment of its vision.

“The PGS, a framework of PNP’s Integrated Transformation Program (ITP) serves as a challenge for the entire police organization on how to address the missed opportunities and improve their performance,” Delfin explained.

Earlier, Delfin conducted an interview with the members of the Provincial Advisory Council (PAC) to determine how effective the PGS is to its internal and external stakeholders.

The PAC, chaired by Vice Governor Juan Regala acts as an oversight and advisory body with members representing oversight agencies, private sector, and key stakeholders.
