Bohol benchmark model bags four major awards

Rey Anthony H. Chiu

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol Sept 10 (PIA) -- When it rains, it pours.

Four major distinctions embellish Bohol’s trailblazing methods in governance and public service, a distinction which may well be a benchmark model for other local government units aspiring to beat themselves in performance.

Last week, national dailies carried Bohol in its headlines for the honor it snagged by bagging the country’s best governed province in a web-based self assessment tool using a rating system called the Local Government Performance Management System as set up by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) .

Bohol netted a 4.937 on a scale of 5 for its performance in 2010, based on administrative, social, economic and environmental governance.

The week before that, the province also received a rare distinction for local governments with the Kaakbay Award in partnership with Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) which is a benchmark for partnership in job generation and technical education support.

The week before that too, Bohol hammered its stakes in nutrition by bagging the Consistent Regional Outstanding Winner in Nutrition (CROWN) Awardee through the Regional Nutrition Council (RNC) in the Visayas.

This week also, The Civil service Commission (CSC) announced the Dangal ng Bayan Presidential Award for local government officials honor for Governor Edgar Chatto.

In his weekly radio program called Kita ug ang Gobernador, Chatto said the achievements are just part of the enhancement that Bohol is undertaking in improving the quality of its service delivery to the people. 

He said, “While we receive the honors of being the best province in governance and number one, we must not use it to brag but to inspire our people to better their service and to elevate our performance to the people.”

While inspiring, we public servants must use it as a challenge because we will be competing with our own performance.

We do not compete with any province, but with our own performance as a benchmark to top the following year, Chatto urged. (30)
