PCSO Achieved an Impressive Performance Scorecard Rating of 92.5 Percent for Efficiency, Exemplary Performance in CY2022
MANILA, Philippines (October 30, 2023) — The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) achieved an impressive performance scorecard rating of 92.5 percent for calendar year (CY) 2022 as assessed by the Governance Commission for Government-owned and Controlled Corporations (GCG).
This was a significant milestone for the agency, reflecting 5 years of hard work to meet its performance targets.
After a thorough validation by the GCG, the PCSO exceeded most of its targets set last year, particularly in gross revenue or sales, collection efficiency and budget utilization.
These achievements contributed to the agency’s high rating.
The agency’s score of 92 percent in 2022 was a huge leap of 34 percent compared to its 2021 score of 56 percent.
PCSO general manager Melquiades “Mel” Robles expressed gratitude to PCSO employees for their unwavering commitment and challenged them to continue striving for excellence and exploring greater possibilities.
He stressed the importance of working together, supporting one another and achieving more significant milestones.
Additionally, the PCSO had shown a solid commitment to rationalizing the use of charity funds, improving process efficiency, maintaining ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certification and ensuring the timely distribution of mandatory contributions.
These efforts further contributed to its high performance scorecard rating.
In 2022, the PCSO surpassed its annual sales target of P 46.1 billion by 125 percent.
It generated gross receipts of P57.51 billion from various gaming products, including Lotto, Digit Games, Small Town Lottery and Scratch It.
“We are proud to have achieved such a high performance scorecard rating for CY 2022,” said Robles.
“Our team [had] been working tirelessly to ensure we meet our targets and deliver on our mandate of assisting those in need,” He continued.
PCSO employees are eligible for the performance-based bonus (PBB) grant but the agency must comply with the documentary requirements set by the GCG.
Based on GCG MC 2019-02, an agency can apply for the grant of PBB upon receiving a GCG-validated scorecard and achieving a weighted average of at least 90 percent in its performance scorecard and 100 percent compliance with statutory liabilities.
