The Office of the President of the Philippines (OP; Filipino: Tanggapan ng Pangulo ng Pilipinas), is an administrative, advisory, and consultative government agency that aids the president of the Philippines in performing their duty as head of state and chief of the executive branch of government.
The Office of the President (OP) was created through Administrative Order No. 322, s. 1997. The order was issued following the submission of position papers by the officials of the Department of History of the University of the Philippines, and the Board of National Historical Institute which conducted deliberations and consultations in four meetings held at the Malacañang Palace from May 5 to June 25, 1997.
The order established the office retroactively to the date of the date of the Tejeros Convention. The convention was held on March 22, 1897, which saw the election of Emilio Aguinaldo as President of the Revolutionary Government of the Philippines.
The Office of the President's mandate is to provide administrative, advisory, consultative and other support services to the President in the latter's exercise of their powers and functions as Head of State and of the Executive Branch.
The executive powers of the President under the 1987 Constitution from which the Office of the President mandate emanates, includes among others the President's power of control over all the executive departments, bureaus and offices, and the chief executive departments, bureaus and offices, and the Chief Executive's Constitutional duty to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed. Based on said executive powers of the President, the OP proper would perform the following core functions:
- Respond to the specific needs and requirements of the President to achieve the purposes and objectives of the Office and the other agencies under it which include those under the chairmanship of the President, those under the supervision and control of the President, those under the supervision and control/administrative supervision of the OP, those attached to it for policy and program coordination, and those not placed by law or order creating them under any special department
