The National Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP), Career Executive Service Board (CESB), Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), National Defense College of the Philippines Alumni Association, Inc. (NDCPAAI), and National Union of Career Executive Service Officers, Inc. (NUCESO) entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) last 31 January 2012 at the NDCP Auditorium, Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo, Quezon City. The said MOA embodies the general policy and the implementing rules and regulations to facilitate the integration of the competency standards of the fourstage eligibility process into the one-year master in National Security Administration (MNSA) program of the NDCP. Beginning with the ongoing MNSA class, all NDCP

graduates henceforth may be conferred CES eligibility together with their degree upon graduation. Vice President Jejomar C Binay MNSA, the Chairman of the Board and President of the NDCPAAI, considers the integration of the NDCP and CESB systems and processes as a potent instrument for revolutionizing the Civil Service, and does not only benefit future NDCP alumni but also the bureaucracy by providing our leaders with more tools to sculpt our nations future. Dr Fermin R de Leon Jr, NDCP President, sees the harmonization as enriching not only the Colleges academic standards but also its students career credentials and potentials as it prepares them

Excerpts of the Speech of Vice President Jejomar C. Binay, MNSA during the Signing of the CESB-NDCP-NDCPAAI-NUCESO-DAP Memorandum of Agreement on Incorporating the Competency Standards of CES Eligibility into the MNSA Program, Auditorium, National Defense College of the Philippines, Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City, 31 January 2012, 8:30 a.m.


By integrating the CES eligibility process and the MNSA program of the NDCP, each becomes more than just a brick in the edifice of State. The cooperation unleashes a wealth of skill and talent into both areas, and causes new strength to surge in our capabilities and what we deem possible for the nation. All of our institutions select the best men and women they can, and in the screening measures we employ, we seek to sort grain from chaff and determine which of the candidates has the potential to lead. In the crucible of our organizations, we grant not just the opportunity to extract these talents but to provide the tools and training needed to hasten their maturity. By joining forces, our union produces more than what each of us could do alone. We not only have senior executives who have gone through the meticulous CESO process, we also have government executives who have acquired that strategic national security framework and are able to apply this incisive thinking to all of their professional involvements. We have raised the bar and I believe that it shall rise further in the near future. In continuing to examine where we can push the envelope, perhaps you will permit me to suggest a few ideas for future partnerships. The incorporation of national security tracks and studies into executive training may be something that the CESB can consider. The NDCP is certainly more than willing to help, as they have never shied away from working with other government agencies for timely enterprises. I can also assure you of the support of the NDCP Alumni Association any time this should be required. Charles de Gaulle once remarked that all those who can get the best out of others, have always identified themselves with high ideals. We have managed to proclaim the excellence we wish to live. Our next task is to make this MOA and this partnership work. I have every reason to be confident that all of you can get others to do their best. It is my firmest conviction that we will make this work. Mabuhay

At this glorious time, I also urge all stakeholders to apply the same resolve and urgency to look into the standing concern of many NDCP alumni, especially those from the civilian government sector, who have served our country with distinction as thirdthird-level managers.

Today is a milestone that many NDCP Alumni could only dream of. As the NDCP Alumni Chairman and President, I commend the Career Executive Service Board and our alma mater, the National Defense College of the Philippines, for taking this significant first step together and agreeing to integrate their respective systems and processes for the benefit of future NDCP alumni and prospective Career Executive Service Officers. The pioneers beneficiaries of this agreement are the members of the MNSA Regular Course-47 and the officer-students from my other alma mater, the AFP Command and General Staff College. The partnership that we forged today is a potent instrument for revolutionizing the Civil Service. The MOA we accomplished demonstrates that our sense of duty matches the tides of our times. Our resolve provides not just the hope of change but results and proof. At this glorious time, I also urge all stakeholders to apply the same resolve and urgency to look into the standing concern of many NDCP alumni, especially those from the civilian government sector, who have served our country with distinction as third-level managers. Indeed, today we disprove the mistaken notion that bureaucracies are hampered by inertia and are slow to change. In the mission of molding leaders for the governments service, the NDCP and the CESB are more united than ever as partners. The challenges that we face as a nation are new fronts which demand that the most capable professionals man our various battlements. It is incumbent upon us in government to guarantee the best training and education for our leaders, and whenever possible, transform these into strategic opportunities.

to be more qualified and responsive to the demands of civil service. More importantly, as NDCP contributes to the AFPs pool of reservist officers with every MNSA graduating class, so too will the College contribute to the civil services pool of career executive service officers with an MNSA education. Joining Vice President Binay in signing the MOA were CESB Chair Bernardo P Abesamis, NDCP President Fermin R de Leon Jr PhD MNSA, DAP President Antonio D Kalaw Jr CESO I, and NUCESO President Corazon C Davis CESO II. Standing in as witnesses during the MOA signing were CESB Executive Director Ma Anthonette V Allones MNSA CESO I, NDCPAAI Secretary-General Shirley Marie Pelaez-Plaza MNSA, and the CoChairs of the Technical Working Group which drafted the MOA, BGen Ernesto R Aradanas MNSA AFP, and CESB Deputy Executive Director Arturo M Lachica, CESO II. The activity was attended by senior officials from the Department of National Defense and the Armed Forces of the Philippines, together with members of MNSA Regular Class 47 of the NDCP and the AFP Command and General Staff College Class No. 55.
