The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has attained its ISO 9001:2008 Certification, as part of the budget agency’s strong commitment to deliver efficient and effective public service.
“We are proud to announce that the DBM operates a quality management system, which has been assessed as conforming to ISO 9001:2008 quality management system standards.
The ISO certification conferred to the DBM is department-wide, as opposed to ISO certification conferred to a particular division or unit of a government office,” Budget Secretary Florencio “Butch” Abad said.
“So far, the DBM is the only government agency to get a department-wide ISO certification on its first try,” Abad said.
The agency was awarded the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 Certification for its systems and processes in relation to policy formulation, preparation of the national budget, management/administration of the national budget, and monitoring and analysis of performance.
