In support of integrity and transparency of public service, Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) retains its fully compliant status with the enhanced Freedom of Information (FOI) requirements as validated by the Presidential Commissions Operations Office (PCCO).
Following section 5.7 b of Memorandum Circular No. 2020-1 issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force, the university was able to accomplish the required updated University FOI manual and related FOI reports which can be accessed on our university’s transparency seal page.
Enabled by Executive Order No. 2, series of 2016, the FOI program allows Filipino citizens “to request any information about government transactions and operations, provided that it shall not put into jeopardy privacy and matters of national security.”
PUP continues to show its support for this initiative by upgrading several systems, services, and programs related to strengthening freedom of information within the university.
In 2020, PUP also received 2020 FOI Award under the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) Category) for its commendable contribution to the FOI program through the launching of the Online Student Support Services Action Center (OSSSAC).
