PIA Press Release

Saludo is new CSC chair

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (7 August) -- Former Cabinet Secretary Ricardo Saludo now chairs the Civil Service Commission (CSC).

Saludo, occupies the CSC chairmanship ad interim while the Commission on Appointments has yet to pass upon his confirmation.

He succeeded Karina Constantino-David whose term of office expired last February, the CSC online news said.

Saludo's administration will focus on five core values, namely, morale, efficiency, responsiveness, courtesy and integrity (MERCI).

He said the goal of the CSC would be to achieve a more "MERCI-ful" civil service by increasing government pay, intensifying advocacy on merit-based appointments and promotion, maximizing mass media to feature model public servants, and harnessing the benefits of information technology for governance.

Accordingly, Saludo will also push for enhanced personnel evaluation systems, frequent interface between the government and the public, transparency in public sector actions and transactions, and reforms in graft-prone structures and procedures to curb corruption, among other initiatives.

Saludo, who graduated Cum Laude in Bachelor of Arts from the Ateneo de Manila University, finished his Master in Public Policy and Management from the University of London.

He also finished his graduate studies in media and journalism at the Asian Institute of Journalism where he was named as outstanding alumnus.

Saludo was formerly the undersecretary and head of the policy group of the Presidential Management Staff and later became Cabinet Secretary.

In 2003, he was appointed as deputy presidential spokesperson, and concurrently as Acting Head of the Presidential Management Staff in January 2004.

Later, however, Saludo gave up his posts to work full time as head of three new Cabinet Groups, namely the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) Cabinet Group, National Security Council (NSC) Cabinet Group and the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Cabinet Group. (PIA) [top]
