Welcome to the 2021 Philippine Civil Service Anniversary webpage!
Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 1050, series of 1997 declaring the month of September as the Civil Service Month, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) will be spearheading the 121st Anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service in September 2021. This is in observance of the establishment of the Philippine Civil Service by virtue of Public Law No. 5 (An Act for the Establishment and Maintenance of an Efficient and Honest Civil Service in the Philippine Islands) on 19 September 1900.
The CSC is also introducing a 10-year overarching theme, Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant-Heroes, reflecting the path the civil service has to take to build on the gains of last year’s modernization efforts in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the role of HR in building a competent and credible workforce in the new normal.
The details of the month-long celebration is also on CSC Memorandum No. 9, s. 2021.
