Department of Budget and Management Undersecretary Goddes Hope Libiran has been named as the Top Communicator of Government Agencies-Philippines for the year 2023 by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD).

Usec. Libiran is a proud resident of San Fernando, Pampanga.

After completing the nationwide “Boses ng Bayan” job performance assessment, RPMD named USec Libiran as a โ€œstandout performerโ€, showcasing her as an exceptional communication leader within Philippine Government Agencies.

The lady USec from the DBM secured an impressive 89.7 percent, sharing the top spot with Mico Clavano of the Department of Justice, who received an 88.9 percent job satisfaction rating.

According to RPMD, the assessment of these communicators is crucial for the transparent, clear, and responsible dissemination of governmental information, which is fundamental to maintaining public trust and the functionality of national institutions. Their effective communication, particularly during critical times such as crises or significant policy changes, is essential for maintaining governmental credibility and public trust.

Criteria for this assessment includes clarity and accuracy of information conveyed, timeliness of responses, adaptability to new communication channels, the ability to engage diverse audiences, crisis management, and consistency across communication platforms.
Ethical communication standards emphasizing honesty, integrity, and respect for privacy were also strictly evaluated.

Regular and systematic evaluations are crucial not only for maintaining high performance but also for encouraging continuous improvement and professional growth among government communicators, RPMD said. Such evaluations enhance the overall effectiveness of government communication strategies, which supports improved governance and strengthens democratic processes.

Other notable communicators included were Marge Gutierrez of the Department of Interior and Local Government with 87.3%; Edu Punay of the Department of Social Welfare and Development with 85.6%; Daphne Oseรฑa-Paez of the Presidential Communications Office with 84.1%; and Dana Sandoval of the Bureau of Immigration, who scored 82.5%.

Meanwhile, commendations were given to Jonathan Malaya of the National Security Council with 80.2%, Felix William Fuentebella of the Department of Energy with 78.6%, Reynaldo Munsayac of the Office of the Vice President with 76.3%, Mike Poa of the Department of Education with 74.2%, and Jean Fajardo of the Philippine National Police with 70.7%.

“I am immensely proud of the professionalism and dedication exhibited by these individuals. Their pivotal roles in enhancing transparency and shaping public perception establish them not just as representatives of their agencies but as vital conduits between the government and the public,โ€ RPMD Global Affairs Analyst and Executive Director Dr. Paul Martinez said.

Martinez also highlighted the importance of their work, stating, “Effective communication by these spokespeople ensures that all stakeholders clearly understand government policies and actions. This clarity is crucial for preventing misinformation, managing public expectations, and building a cooperative relationship between the government and its citizens. Furthermore, in times of crisis, these communicators are indispensable for delivering urgent and accurate information that can safeguard public safety and stability.”

He concluded, “Their capacity to convey complex information in an accessible manner significantly contributes to informed public discourse and decision-making. This is essential for fostering civic engagement and sustaining democratic governance. Therefore, we must continue to recognize and enhance the skills of these top communicators to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of our governmental communication efforts.”

The “Top Communicators of Government Agenciesโ€”Philippines (year 2023)” segment was a vital component of the “Boses ng Bayan” survey, a comprehensive nationwide initiative involving 10,000 respondents carefully selected from a large voter pool of 65 million. The survey’s methodology, characterized by a 95 percent confidence level and a margin of error of ยฑ1 percent, highlights its reliability and the significance of its findings in gauging public opinion.
