Performance Governance System.
Police Senior Inspector Velmar Gonzales said PPO's Director Senior Superintendent Raymond Sterling Blanco sees to it that policemen in every police station in the four cities and 44 towns in Pangasinan is attuned to the nuances of electronic communication.
“In Class A municipality dapat mga three padala, everyday from the (first) week of June hanggang matapos, Class B apat,” he told this paper when asked how the mechanics work for testing of police in Pangasinan.
He said those policemen would undertake an array of online examinations until they pass them so they can be ready for the electronic - learning test to be conducted anytime from now in the national headquarter in Quezon City.
Gonzales said the review conducted by PPO to policemen all over the province will harness them to distinguish the right answers the examiners ask them when they are finally tasked for the examination in the national headquarter.
He said those who failed the test at the PPO will be asked to re-take until they master the nuances and pass the examination.
Blanco said the PPO passed on March 4 the tough initiation stage of the ITG-PGS at Camp Crame.
ITP-PGS 2030 is the governance road map of the PNP which is an upgraded version of the ITP.
The PGS is the Philippine adaptation of the Balanced Scorecard, a management tool used in tracking the organization’s progress in attaining its vision by 2030.
The test for police offices all over the country has four (4) stages namely the Initiation Stage, Compliance Stage, Proficiency Stage and Institutionalization Stage.
ITP-PGS is where six government agencies that include the PNP are scored by selected evaluators on good governance through the Balance Score Card (BSC) system as required by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) – a United State assistance funding body.
