2017 Gawad CES Nomination Deadline Extended to June 15

30 May 2017



The deadline for acceptance of nominations for The 2017 Gawad CES Awards Program is extended until June 15, 2017.

The “Gawad CES” is a Presidential Award administered by the Career Executive Service Board that recognizes, rewards and promotes performance excellence in public service by honoring government executives, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and achievements in public service.

The Award is open to all Career Executive Officers and Third Level Eligibles occupying positions that require performance of executive, leadership and/or managerial functions.

Government agencies, national and regional associations of career executive officers and non-government/civil society organizations, through their Heads of Offices or Chief Executive Officers or a superior/subordinate or any individual from the nominee’s agency who has substantial knowledge of the nominee’s leadership/ managerial attributes and accomplishments are qualified to nominate for the Award.

Winners are selected through a three-level screening process. The first or pre-screening level is done by the CESB Secretariat to ensure adherence to criteria and completion of documents. The second level screening is done by a group of previous years’ winners of the GAWAD CES who short-lists from among the nominees the finalists for in-depth validation. The third and final level screening is done by the Committee on Awards (COA) which selects the winners for the year’s GAWAD CES from among the validated finalists. The COA is a nine-person committee composed of five private-sector representatives who are considered luminaries in their field, a representative from the National Union of Career Executive Service Officers, Inc. (NUCESO) and three CES Board members.

Winners will receive a P100,000 cash prize, a plaque of recognition signed by the President of the Philippines and a Gawad CES statuette.
