The article presents a study assessing the records management program of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC). It focuses on the records section of the Commission which is the government's primary funding branch for sports development and assigned by law to provide administrative services. The study, which uses the International Standard for Information Management, centers on the components of a record management program which include policy and guidelines, records management processes and controls, and personnel training. The study indicates how constant changes in the senior management trigger issues within the organization. Moreover, it reveals PSC's lack of process regarding indexing and classification of records. Recommendations for the PSC to improve its operation are included.
