Commission on Appointment confirms Lizada

February 09, 2019

Newly-confirmed Civil Service Commission (CSC) chief Aileen Lourdes Lizada vowed to include among her priorities the retirement program for state workers while looking forward to “gawing lingkod bayani ang bawat kawani.”

The CSC has welcomed the Commission on Appointment (CA)’s confirmation of Lizada whose term will expire in 2025.

The new commissioner pointed out the need to re-invigorate the civil service, re-instill the value of service and integrity among the 1.5 million civil servants.

Lizada also promised to strictly monitor every worker’s performance through individual performance commitment reports and qualification standards.

She cited the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act or Republic Act No. 11032 as an important tool to improve public service delivery.

According to Senator Grace Poe, “we need a game changer like her,” citing Lizada as a model of excellence and integrity.

While serving the Office of the Ombudsman in Mindanao for 12 years, Lizada was known as a staunch “crime buster and anti-graft lawyer” before her transfer to the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board or LTFRB.
