Performance evaluation of the Bank’s Board of Directors is central to corporate governance. Performance rating sheets initially developed by the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) and continuously improved by the Corporate Governance Committee are disseminated yearly to evaluate the performance of the Board and the Board-level Committees. The results of the performance assessments are evaluated and deliberated upon annually by the Corporate Governance Committee in a duly constituted meeting.
The Bank encourages the continuous education of the Directors. One of the results of the performance evaluation is the identification of the direction of the policy for the continuing education of the Directors, in order to address certain areas of concern in the performance of the Directors, if any.
The rating scale for each item is from 1 to 5 (5 being the highest) and the total points are rated from 0% to 100% (95% - 100.00% as Superior, 85% - 94.99% as Ideal and 80% - 84.99% as Acceptable). There are 69 items in the Board rating instrument and 38 items in the Individual Rating of Board Members.
This rating instrument is divided into four categories with corresponding weights.
I. Board Functions and Responsibilities (30%)
II. Board Structure (10%)
III. Board Process (30%)
IV. Board Performance (30%)
This rating instrument is divided into five categories with corresponding weights.
I. Competence and Independence (25%)
II. Commitment to Corporate Governance (25%)
III. Transparency (20%)
IV. Audit & Risk Oversight (20%)
V. Committee Activity (10%)

The results of the Performance Rating System of the Board and Board-level committees for CY 2019 were discussed and noted by the Corporate Governance Committee in a meeting held on July 03, 2020 (CG Com Resolution Nos. 20-028 to 20-035).
Another performance evaluation tool for directors, the internet-based Performance Evaluation for Directors (iPED) System was developed by the Governance Commission for GOCCs (GCG) to increase the level of confidentiality and security in the information being given by the directors. The Director Performance Review (DPR), one of the components of the Performance Evaluation for Directors in the GOCC Sector, appraises the performance of individual members of the GOCC Governing Board. The DPR Forms are being accomplished and submitted by each director directly to the GCG through the iPED System.
