Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Tabuk, Kalinga — After nearly a decade of implementing the Performance Governance System (PGS), the Kalinga Police Provincial Office was evaluated on its Institutionalization stage or the last phase of the program this November 10.

PGS, which is an adaptation of the performance management tool of the Harvard University Business School, is said to translate vision to actionable strategies that could lead to ‘breakthrough results’ to make an agency more sustainable and responsive to its purpose.

In the Philippines, PNP is among the 6 government agencies chosen and mandated to participate in the program, which is why the PNP Peace and Order Agenda for Transformation and upholding of the Rule-Of- Law (PATROL) Plan 2030 was then crafted.

In an interview, Police Colonel Davy Vicente Limmong, Kalinga Police Provincial Director informed that KPPO underwent the Institutionalization Evaluation Process Performance and Impact Audit at Camp Juan M Duyan as part of the validation of their performance and impact which are indicators if they can pass the last stage of PGS.

Limmong said that the activities include the presentation of KPPO’s accomplishments and the focus group discussion with the audit team from the PNP national headquarters led by Police Colonel Ercy Nanette Madriaga.

Additionally, the audit team also interviewed key personnel, non-uniformed personnel, and stakeholders regarding the performance and impact of the unit.

Meantime, the Kalinga Police Provincial Director said that the results of the evaluation may be released probably months from now after deliberation in the national.

History of Performance Governance System in KPPO

Initiation Stage

The Performance Governance System has four stages – Initiation, Compliance, Proficiency, and Institutionalization. The units have to pass each stage in order to get to another.

KPPO Information Officer Police Lieutenant Ruff Manganip narrated that it was on July 12, 2012, that KPPO started the Initiation stage. He narrated that during this phase, they formulated the Kalinga Police Provincial Management Strategy Unit to handle the Integrated Transformation Program and Performance Governance System.

Subsequently, on September 21 of the same year, they organized the Kalinga Provincial Advisory Council, which is composed of representatives from various sectors in the society.

On June 10, 2014, KPPO passed the Initiation stage.


For the Compliance stage, Manganip explained that this is the formalization of all the plans and programs, cascading of the visions and the strategies, and aligning budget and human resources to the visions and strategies.

On March 7, 2016, KPPO did not just pass the stage, but rather they were awarded the Silver Eagle Award, which corresponds to a 90-94% rating. Manganip revealed they were only points short for the gold.


As for the Proficiency stage, KPPO bagged another Silver Eagle Award for the said phase on June 10, 2019.

The proficiency stage is the analysis and examination of strategy execution; creation of the Office of Strategy Management; and regular monitoring and review of strategies.
