The Performance Governance System (PGS) is a local adaptation of the Balanced Scorecard pioneered by Robert Kaplan and David Norton. The Balanced Scorecard is a management tool designed to align the organizations’ activities to its vision of transforming strategic plans from an attractive but passive document into “marching orders” for the organization on a daily basis. By adopting the same concepts espoused by the Balanced Scorecard, the PGS aims to help organizations translate its visions into actionable and concrete strategies that will lead to the realization of breakthrough results which will make organizations more sustainable and more responsive.

The main objective of the PGS is to help PGS Partners create results that impact the lives of the Filipino people. Coming from the tenet that good governance is good strategy formulation plus consistent strategy implementation; the elements of the PGS are expected to motivate PGS partners to have the discipline of executing and monitoring their strategy which hopefully will bring about performance results. Taking into consideration the progress and development of the partner in creating transformation, these elements are required to be fulfilled by the PGS partner before becoming successfully conferred the PGS stage.



The first stage of the PGS requires institutions to build on their organization’s strengths and create a long-term strategy roadmap, governance scorecard, portfolio of strategic initiatives. Institutions must demonstrate how their vision serves as a reference in identifying the priorities and initiatives that will be pursued as solution-generators for development challenges and constraints.



The second stage of the PGS requires institutions to cascade the strategy to the lower-level units and allocate financial resources for strategic initiatives. At the same time, they must establish an Office for Strategy Management (OSM), a Multi-Sector Governance Council (MSGC), and create a Communication Plan for the transformation program.



The third stage of the PGS requires institutions to demonstrate that their previously installed governance mechanisms function toward producing emerging breakthrough results. At this point, the scorecard should evolve to more than just a performance-tracking document and become a guide for decision-making by leadership team.



The final stage of the PGS is all about breakthrough results and the presence of a governance culture in the organization supported by sustainable mechanisms. At this stage, institutions must be able to align every effort toward transformation and better delivery of public service. Lastly, the institution must also be able to demonstrate that it has spread the advocacy of good governance with other organizations.

Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City-- The Armed Forces of the Philippines signed with the Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MFI) and Rotary Club of Makati Metro (RCMM) the Memorandum of Agreement for the 2016 The Outstanding Philippine Soldiers.

The AFP Chief of Staff General Hernando DCA Iriberri along with MFI president Mr Aniceto M Sobrepeña, and RCMM president Atty. Al Miguel T Leogardo led the signing which also signals the start of the annual search.


Present in the ceremony are senior military and defense officials including Major Service commanders and past TOPS awardees. Among them are AFP Vice Chief of Staff Mgen Romeo T Tanalgo (2009), AFP Sergeant Major Romeo H Jandugan (2009), 1st Air Division Commander MGen Raul Del Rosario (2011), and Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations BGen Carlito Galvez, among others.

“The search for TOPS started in 1994 and has produced 176 awardees who continue to serve as models of excellence, professionalism, nobility, and integrity in their service,” Leogardo said during the ceremony.

Now on its 16th iteration, TOPS has become a highly sought after award among soldiers who have shown exemplary service worthy of the honor.

“This is our social contract to all the men and women of the AFP for tirelessly battling for the peace of our nation. We believe that Filipino soldiers do not just fight insurgents or defend our territorial integrity, but continuously maintain a strong relationship with the community they serve,” Sobrepaña said.

General Iriberri lauded both MFI and RCMM for the enduring partnership and the support they have given in recognizing the valuable contributions of the Filipino soldiers to the country.

“More than recognizing the men and women of the AFP, the success of the search for TOPS is a testament to the relevance and responsiveness of the entire AFP to the nation,” Iriberri said.
