The Commission on Audit is committed to recognize creativity, innovation, efficiency, productivity, courage, and selflessness of its people in the public service. This led to the adaptation of COA Resolution No. 2002-007 dated October 3, 2002 establishing the COA Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (PRAISE).

Years after, the Commission expanded the coverage of its PRAISE, in compliance with Rule X of the Omnibus Rules Implementing Book V of Executive Order No. 292 and Republic Act (RA) No. 6713, by issuing COA Resolution 2016-004 dated April 1, 2016 which aims to promote uniformity and consistency in the implementation of the awards and incentives program.

Even then, it continuously holds awarding ceremony to recognize exemplary employees, mainly to espouse appreciation and inspire productivity, which traditionally coincides with COA Anniversary every month of May.

The COA PRAISE Committee, chaired by Director Maria Carmina Paulita J. Pagayawan, leads its implementation and is being administratively supported by the members of the Human Resource Management Office.
