PAGCOR (The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation) has taken another significant step towards privatizing its casinos by partnering with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) to facilitate its reorganization. In compliance with the Governance Commission for GOCCs (GCG), PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro Tengco sought the technical assistance of DAP to implement the Compensation and Position Classification System (CPCS) before privatization.

Expressing gratitude to DAP for their support, Tengco acknowledged their role in competency building within the government and their assistance in meeting the documentary requirements of the GCG. The Memorandum of Agreement was signed by Tengco and DAP President & CEO Atty. Engelbert Caronan, Jr., with the aim of reorganizing PAGCOR. Additionally, Tengco expressed his desire for DAP’s involvement in training PAGCOR officers and employees to enhance their skills and competencies.

Caronan expressed his appreciation to PAGCOR for entrusting DAP with the task of implementing organizational changes for the benefit of PAGCOR’s workforce. He reassured PAGCOR of DAP’s readiness to provide the necessary technical services to ensure GCG compliance and successful reorganization.

DAP, a government-owned and controlled corporation, serves as a catalyst for change and capacity builder, assisting agencies and local government units in their development efforts. It helps shape government policies, develop programs, and modernize management structures.

In a recent interview, PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro H Tengco expressed the belief that as a government entity, PAGCOR should have a clearly defined function and should not hold dual roles as an operator and a regulator, as it goes against business ethics.
