PS PhilGEPS officials, led by Executive Director Bingle B. Gutierrez, attended the Executive Briefing on the development of an IMP last October 13, 2016 at the DBM Executive Lounge in Malacanang, Manila. DBM Secretary Benjamin E. Diokno provided the Opening Remarks during the activity and emphasized the need for everyone to contribute in curbing corruption in government as it negatively impacts the entire country.
In attendance from the Office of the Ombudsman were Asst. Ombudsman Evelyn Baliton and Acting Director Hilario Favila. From the Office of the President, Atty. Froilan Montalban discussed the overview of the IMP.
The next steps for the PS-PhilGEPS towards developing an Integrity Management Plan would be to set up an Integrity Management Committee and the conduct of an Integrity Assessment. The equally-important tasks of implementing the IMP and conducting the progress of implementation will then follow.
