Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi leads members of the DOE family in receiving International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Certificates awarded by the Development Academy (DAP) of the Philippines and the AJA Registrars, Inc. yesterday (4 February) at the agency's headquarters in Taguig City.
"The process was rigorous and required us to abandon the limiting mindset that has been hampering the DOE from keeping up with rapidly changing times. Now, we are closer to raising the bar of public service," Sec. Cusi said in his closing remarks.
The ISO Certification was part of the Government Quality Management Program, which seeks to promote and enhance public sector performance, develop an institutional infrastructure, establish the citizens' charter of key government offices and recognize citizen-driven government organizations.
Among the awardees of the ISO 9001:2015 certificates were the Energy Resource Development Bureau, Oil Industry Management Bureau, Energy Policy and Planning Bureau, Records Service Division, and Lighting and Appliance Testing Laboratory Services.
