Verify the authenticity and assess the impact of the milestone accomplishments of the finalists of the Metrobank Outstanding Filipinos Award
PSSC was commissioned by Metrobank Foundation Inc. (MBFI) to validate the accomplishments of its shortlisted nominees for the Outstanding Filipinos Award. MBFI sought a more stringent vetting process after it unified the awards for teachers, soldiers and policemen and raised the prize money from P500,000 to P1 million. PSSC engaged the services of 16 researchers to carry out the validation over a period of three weeks. PSSC completed the projectin July and the winners were selected in August.
