MANILA, Philippines — The Office of the Vice President (OVP) has earned more accolades recently — this time from the Civil Service Commission (CSC) and the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), Vice President Leni Robredo said in a statement issued on Monday.

From the CSC, the OVP got the PRIME-HRM Level II Accreditation for Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management — a distinction given to offices that are able to develop their human resources to a more competitive level.


From the DAP, it got a citation called Government Best Practices for COVID-19 Response for two of its programs — the  Community Learning Hubs and the Free Shuttle Service.

“Last week, we were also awarded our ISO Certification which we have been achieving every year since we first got our ISO Certification in 2017,” Robredo said.

The OVP launched the Community Learning Hubs in partnership with several local government units with the aim of allowing students to get tutorial help and access to key gadgets and internet connectivity as the pandemic required a shift to distance learning modes, like online classes or a modular system.

The free shuttle program, also done in collaboration with private sector partners, started in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic when lockdowns shut down public transportation. It was set up for health workers and other frontliners reporting for work.

In one gathering where she presented her platform as a presidential aspirant in the 2022 elections, Robredo said that, as part of her labor agenda, she would want the regain the people’s trust in government.

On several occasions, Robredo referred to the achievements of her office, including getting the highest ratings from the Commission on Audit, as examples of what she could achieve if elected president.

Robredo and her running mate, Sen. Francis Pangilinan, are facing an uphill battle, as recent surveys have placed them in the middle of the pack.

But recently, Robredo’s camp expressed delight after a survey released last November showed that her numbers were improving, showing her in second place behind former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
