Premier Guest House, Malacañang
May 17, 2023

Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin leads the Philippine Quality Award (PQA) Conferment Ceremony at the Premier Guest House in Malacañang on 17 May 2023.

The PQA is an integrated approach for performance management that sets the standard of excellence to help organizations in the Philippines achieve world-class performance.

Established through Executive Order (EO) No. 448, issued by former President Fidel V. Ramos on 3 October 1997, the award is given to both public and private groups that demonstrate excellence in quality and productivity. This was institutionalized on 28 February 2002 through the signing of Republic Act (RA) No. 9013 or the Philippine Quality Award Act.

Moreover, the PQA is the highest level of national recognition for exemplary organizational performance. The Award or Recognition is given by the President of the Philippines, to which, the Executive Secretary is representing the Chief Executive in this day’s ceremony.
