A LAWMAKER on Tuesday called on the agency overseeing the operations of state-run firms or “Government-Owned and -Controlled Corporations” (GOCCs) to lead the way in promoting efficiency, transparency, and accountability in the government service.

Bicol Saro Party-list Representative Brian Raymund Yamsuan also reminded employees of the Governance Commission for Government-Owned and -Controlled Corporations (GCG) that working in government is not merely a job but a commitment to do one’s best in serving the Filipino people.

He said the GCG’s mantra of aiming “G.R.E.A.T.,” which stands for Good Governance, Rightsizing, Efficiency, Accountability and Transparency “should go viral” across the bureaucracy so that government employees can be inspired to do better in performing their duties and responsibilities as public servants.

“Commit to be G.R.E.A.T. – greater and better, not only for yourself but for the Filipino people,” Yamsuan told GCG officials and employees during their flag-raising ceremony held Tuesday morning.

“Hindi lang ito trabaho, commitment ito. Commitment ninyo ito sa inyong sarili at sa taumbayan,” added Yamsuan, who was invited by GCG chairperson Justice (Ret.) Alex Quiroz to deliver an inspirational message during the event.

The Bicol Saro Party-list lawmaker said every government employee should do his or her part in promoting good governance to maintain and even heighten the public’s trust and respect in government.

The GCG’s “young, vibrant and energetic” employees can lead the way in undertaking this mission, Yamsuan said.

He said the GCG’s job of overseeing and monitoring the operations of about 118 GOCCs is “no easy task.”

But under the guidance and leadership of Justice Quiroz, Yamsuan said he is certain that the men and women of GCG will continue to remain committed to being responsible, responsive, and productive public servants.

Justice Quiroz and GCG Commissioner Gideon Mortel presented Yamsuan with a certificate of appreciation following his inspirational remarks.
