TACLOBAN CITY- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) in the region will conduct inspection to all government agencies and government-owned and controlled corporations to check if they are implementing the Anti-Red Tape Act (Arta) of 2007.
The inspection of all government agencies and government-owned and controlled corporations is under its “Arta Watch” campaign, said CSC Regional Director Victoria Esber.
Esber said that the Arta Watch is part of the implementation of the Anti-Red Tape Act.
The CSC conducts an unannounced spot check to agencies which renders frontline services as part of the enforcement of the Arta Watch.
“The government agencies in order for them not to fail in the conduct of the Arta Watch must prepare themselves because anytime of the week during office hours we will visit them,” Esber said in an interview with Leyte Samar Daily Express.
She also emphasized that the CSC is not exempted in observing the Arta Watch. “Before the CSC conducts an Arta Watch to other government agencies, we ensure that all our provincial and regional offices are Arta Watch compliant,” Esber said.
The CSC regional director stressed that all government agencies must give their very best in serving the public, especially to their clients.
She said that they must serve their clients with a smile in order for them to be Arta Watch compliant.
Esber said that they will conduct an investigation and file appropriate charges to those government officials or employees who are not doing their jobs especially when there is a pending complaint against them.
The CSC also checks if a government agency is strictly observing the “no noon break policy”. (RYAN GABRIEL L. ARCENAS)
