Transforming onwards to a professional, responsive world class SOLCOM that is a source of National Pride.
On August 7 - 9 2019 SOLCOM participated in the AFPTR Intervention spearheaded by the Office of the Strategic Studies and Strategy Management (OSSSM), GHQ. Mr. Ricardo M. Sacman and Ms. Laura F. Nisperos, Research Analysts at OSSSM, GHQ composed the audit team for this year’s intervention.
The purpose of the AFPTR Intervention is to sustain the implementation of the SOLCOM Transformation Roadmap, strengthen SOLCOM governance and strategy management system and processes, and determine the unit's eligibility for the institutionalized status, the fourth and final stage in the pursuit into becoming a world–class Armed Forces, source of national pride by 2028.
COLONEL ARCANGEL G GAMIDO JR, Chief of SOLCOM Governance Strategy Management Office (GSMO) presented the Command’s current accomplishments and initiatives, milestones, incentives for its well-performing units and personnel and efforts to communicate hallmarks of success to its external stakeholders.
Some of the recommendations presented during the exit briefing are for SOLCOM to:
+ include End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) as one of its best practices since SOLCOM was recognized as the first AFP unit to implement Executive Order Nr 70 at the regional, provincial and city levels.
+ continuously conduct cascading activities in preparation for the on-site audit random interviews scheduled in October 2019.
+ sustain its accomplishment of a 94.8% or a Gold Trailblazer Award performance rating during last year’s Revalida in connection with its proficient status in the AFPTR.
BRIGADIER GENERAL GREG T. ALMEROL AFP, Deputy Commander SOLCOM, in his closing message, enjoined the SOLCOM Strategy Management Committee that knowing the hallmarks of the SOLCOM Transformation Roadmap is secondary only to our commitment to transform SOLCOM into a world-class status in its services for the people of Southern Luzon.
