NEUST receives FOI Award for 2020

On November 25, 2020, the Freedom of Information held its 1st virtual FOI Awarding ceremony. Out of the hundred SUCs nominated in the 2020 FOI awards, there were only three universities that were acknowledged and given special recognition: the University of the Philippines, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, and the Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology headed by its president, Dr. Feliciana P. Jacoba. These three universities were awarded as FOI Champions.

The basis in the selection was the excellent performance in the implementation of the Freedom of Information, being part of the University’s daily operation in terms of the clientele’s request for information; consistency of early compliance relative to the PBB requirements; early submission of the other requirements asked by the FOI management office; and constant coordination with the FOI Management Office for some queries and update on FOI matters.

The people behind the success of the NEUST FOI are Dr. Sarah Alvarez (Planning and Development Office Director); Dr. Arceli Millan (University Publication and Media Affairs Office Head and FOI Focal Person/Receiving Officer); and Engr. Christopher Ladignon (University Record Office Head and FOI Decision Maker).

Kudos to our beloved University! Long live NEUST!
