Pres. Mallari recognized as CSC RO 3 awardee under Honor Awards Program


Tarlac State University President Dr. Myrna Q. Mallari was listed among the awardees of the Civil Service Commission Pagasa Award yesterday, September 30, in a video uploaded by the CSC Regional Office 3 on Facebook as part of its concluding activities for the 121st Philippine Civil Service Anniversary.

The CSC Pagasa Award is conferred to an individual or group for their outstanding contributions resulting from an idea or performance that directly benefit more than one department of the government. This is under the “Outstanding Work Performance” category of the CSC’s Honor Awards Program (HAP).

Under the individual category, Pres. Mallari was recognized for the projects under her leadership which was proven beneficial not just within the university but also among the network of SUCs (state universities and colleges) in the country.

Among her notable contributions to TSU is the Institutional Development Framework Plan and Roadmap compliant to performance standards of government regulatory bodies and international organizations.

All her plans are focused on “people” inclusive of students, faculty members, personnel, parents, potential employers, and other concerned institutions and sectors.

The HAP covers all elective officials and appointive officials and employees holding permanent, temporary, coterminous, contractual, and casual status of employment in the government, whether stationed in the Philippines or abroad.


TSU caps off September with QMS audit


Tarlac State University ended the month of September with the Quality Management System (QMS) online surveillance audit by the ACS W3 Solutionz.  

The university was again visited virtually by the certifying body auditors, Mr. Shahid Mushtaq and Mr. Waseem Khan, through Microsoft Teams to audit its processes and systems procedures against the standards of ISO 9001:2015 or QMS. 

Part of the two-day audit is to review forms and records concerning internal and external issues, interested parties and their needs and expectations, leadership, planning, support services, operations, performance evaluation, and continual improvement. 

Since the audit was done virtually, the auditors also requested a virtual campus tour to further verify the university’s compliance with the standards. 

The present certifications of the university (ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2007) are valid until October 2021. For the new audit cycle, the university administration has decided to maintain and strengthen its QMS as it is the most appropriate and available standard for the academe which still includes standards on environment, health, and safety. 

These standards have contributed to the development, productivity, quality services, and effectiveness of the institution. [Maria Adelaida D. Calayag]
