NPC is certified FOI-compliant – PCOO

State-owned National Power Corporation has been certified as fully compliant to the enhanced Freedom of Information (FOI) program requirements as confirmed and validated by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO).

The certification came after Napocor completed and made accessible its FOI Manual and all FOI reportorial requirements as established by the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring Information and Reporting Systems.

Napocor President and CEO Pio J. Benavidez said that the certification from PCOO confirms Napocor’s continuous efforts upholding good governance through transparency.

We believe that FOI does not only promote accountability among ourselves as public servants, but we also empower our stakeholders and the public by providing them with access to information about our projects, performances and targets,” Benavidez said.

Executive Order No. 2, series of 2016 provides the FOI program requirements. It gives the general public the Constitutional right to information, public and official records, and documents.
