In light of ongoing health and safety protocols and amidst the Nation’s gradual recovery from Covid-19, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) held virtual 2020 Year-End Performance Assessment (YEPA) and 2021 Commission Planning Conference last February 15, 2021, via Zoom.
Virtually attended by the PRC officials and employees from the central and regional offices, including the Chairpersons and Members of the various Professional Regulatory Boards and the ever-supportive Honorable Commissioners Yolanda D. Reyes and Jose Y. Cueto Jr. and PRC Chairman Honorable Teofilo S. Pilando Jr. The whole-day activity aimed to identify the various issues and concerns encountered by the agency during 2020 and discuss root causes in order to create viable solutions and effective measures to address the same.
The activity covered reports rendered by the heads of concerned Offices, tackling assessment, significant proposals, implementation strategies, research programs, action plans, future directions, and other relevant matters.
Chairman Pilando on his YEPA Report highlighted the 2020 statistics collated from the Commission’s relevant services, including the numbers involving legal matters, issuances, clients served thru operational service centers, and feedback retrieved from the Commission’s official social media accounts.
Commissioner Reyes presented notable details on Computer-Based Licensure Examinations (CBLE), one of the Commission’s on-going significant projects. Commissioner Cueto, on the other hand extensively discussed the Commission’s strategies to combat Covid-19.
With all the plans and advancements projected for the year ahead, PRC is equipped to efficiently and proactively respond to the needs and welfare of its personnel, the Filipino professionals, and the public in general. Indeed, the success of this year’s YEPA hovered the culture of integrity and accountability of the Commission.
