The Civil Service Commission ( fil|Komisyon ng Serbisyo Sibil, abbreviated as CSC) is one of the three Constitutional Commissions of the Philippines with responsibility over the civil service. It is tasked with overseeing the integrity of government actions and processes. The commission was founded in 1900 through Act No. 5 of the Philippine Commission and was made a bureau in 1905. The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is the central personnel agency of the Philippine government responsible for the policies, plans, and programs concerning all civil service employees. It has 16 regional offices throughout the country. The other two Constitutional Commissions are the Commission on Elections and Commission on Audit.


The 1987 Constitution staggered the terms of the members of the Constitutional Commissions. Of the first appointees, the Chairman would serve seven years (1st line), a Commissioner would serve five years (2nd line), and another Commissioner would serve three years (3rd line). Term refers to a fixed period, while tenure refers to the actual period that a person held office. The names of the first Members of the CSC since 1987 were mentioned in ''Gaminde v. Commission on Audit''. Incumbents # Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala # Commissioner Atty. Aileen Lourdes A. Lizada # Assistant Commissioner Ariel G. Ronquillo # Assistant Commissioner David E.
