As an organization, the Office of the City Accountant, headed by Ms. Glezen Leah Marie Vedad-Remigoso, CPA, believes that every workforce should have a self-imposed responsibility to society in areas such as the environment, the economy, employee well-being, and competition ethics. This is more commonly known as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). As such, the timeline below shows the current undertakings of the Office since July 2019:
- July to November 2019

- January to September 2020
One of the lived traditions in the Office of the City Accountant which is still being practiced until today is the birthday celebrations of workers who were born in that particular month. Each month, the birthday celebrants will prepare sumptuous food for their co-employees making this a time of savoring the essence of not just being a co-employee, but more so of being in one family that gives birth to the branding as “Pamilya Accounting”.
