BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Aiming to provide excellent public service and to ensure a better quality of life for all, the Provincial Government of Bataan underwent Stage 1 Audit of the ISO 9001:2015 Certification (Quality Management Systems) last December 11.

ISO 9001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

Participating departments/units for the ISO 9001:2015 are the following: Provincial Governor’s Office, Iskolar ng Bataan, Bids and Awards Committee, Provincial Accounting Office, Provincial Treasurer’s Office, Provincial Budget Office, Provincial General Services Office, Provincial Engineer’s Office, Provincial Human Resource Management Office, Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, Metro Bataan Development Authority, and Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office.

The purpose of stage 1 audit is for the auditors to gain knowledge of the company’s policies, objectives, risks, and processes. During the opening meeting, Gov. Abet Garcia presented the PGB’s profile; Atty. Ethelwolda Aldea (ISO Coach, NEO AMCA Innovative Solutions Corporation) delivered a short a message; and Ms. Aurora Tabuton (Auditor, NQA Philippines Inc.) gave an overview of the stage 1 audit.

After the opening meeting, the audit itself took place and later followed by the closing meeting wherein the results/findings were discussed. For all the participating departments, there were good and not so good points, but the overall evaluation led to one thing: they all PASSED.

The objective of a stage 1 audit is to determine an organization’s readiness for the second stage, which is the evaluation of the implementation and effectiveness of the organization’s management systems. Stage 2 audit will take place on December 18.

Congratulations and good luck!
