Benguet gets seal of Good Governance
by Susan C. Aro / PIA

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The provincial government of Benguet got the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) for 2015 for its good performance in keeping with its commitment to walk the “daang matuwid” and in raising the bar of excellence in local governance.

As an incentive, the provincial government will get the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) subsidy amounting to P7 million, which will be used for priority projects.

Gov. Nestor Fongwan was informed about the news by Department of the Interior and Local Government Regional Director John Castañeda through a letter dated Aug. 3.

To access the incentive, Castañeda said the identified project should be listed in the province’s 2015 Annual Investment Plan and should fall under the list of eligible PCF modular projects. A project proposal together with other preliminary requirements should be submitted not later than Aug. 20.

One of the documentary requirements, which is for the sangguniang panlalawigan to authorize the governor to enter into a memorandum of agreement with the DILG, was tackled in the regular session of the board held recently.

The SGLG is a scaled up Seal of Good Housekeeping incentive which took off in 2010 aimed in promoting transparency and accountability in the use of public funds by delivering basic services responsive to the people’s needs under good governance.

In order to qualify as an SGLG recipient based on DILG guidelines, the 3 plus 1 principle applies. A local government which passes all three core assessment areas – good financial housekeeping, disaster preparedness and social protection and also at least one essential assessment area, business-friendliness and competitiveness, peace and order, or environmental management will be conferred with the award.
