Receiving the award on behalf of the NTC were Deputy Commissioner Alvin Bernard Blanco and FOI Officer, Ms. Divina N. Daquioag.
Upon accepting the award, Deputy Commissioner Blanco said that the Commission, through its FOI Officers’ daily intervention in the FOI portal and standard platform, will continue to abide by the principles of the FOI Program as well as activities as the NTC constantly strives to render transparent, fast and reliable public service to the Filipino people.
