Winning is derived from commitment towards work and perseverance to triumph.
After the dedication shown, time and effort invested, and service rendered, SDO Muntinlupa received its ISO 9001-2008 Quality Management System certification on March 16, 2016.
Dr. Mauro C. De Gulan, Schools Division Superintendent (SDS) was delighted to finally learned that ISO Accreditation was successfully clinched by the Division of Muntinlupa, through the efforts of all the members of the organization from the lowest up to the highest ranking positions.
“Everyone manifested selfless desire and made incomparable contributions, which of course are rooted on the concept of ascendancy for advancement. Now that we are ISO accredited, this obliges us to do more and achieve more.” was Dr. De Gulan’s challenge.
The said accreditation greatly spoke about the competent management system of the division. After having passed the numerous orientations and auditing procedures for almost six months, SDO Muntinlupa proved that it had achieved the objectives set by the organization and shown conformity to the standards.
Armed with this ISO certification, SDO officials and staff hope to continuously improve customer satisfaction as regards the consistent delivery of effective and efficient services among its stakeholders.
More so, the ISO certification is a testament to the wise and effective use of resources and improved risk management of the Schools Division Office.
Though it was indeed overwhelming to be recognized as the first ISO certified Schools Division Office in the country, the SDS said, “We still have more to improve and becoming better will remain our top priority.”
Keeping up with the ISO quality management standards, the SDO is fueled with the drive to better attain a more systematic process of doing various transactions as well as provide technical assistance to the schools.
“It is indeed very timely. This is a great manifestation that CI is prevailing in the Division, and this only happens when responsible members of an organization act as a team towards the attainment of a common goal”, Dr. De Gulan emphatically said.
