Bohol gets DILG’s seal Of good housekeeping

By: Rey Anthony Chiu 

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Dec 23, (PIA) – The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) reinforces its “best governed province” for Bohol with this year’s Seal of Good Housekeeping, says Governor Edgar Chatto. 

Among the first provinces to be given the award in this year’s round of evaluations, the seal effectively gets Bohol into the list of local government units that can access a rich resource of development funds in the Millennium Development Corporation’s funds sources, according to the governor. 

Breaking the news during his weekly media interaction Kita ug ang Gobernador, Chatto shared that the DILG has been handing out the seal of Good Housekeeping for towns who have consistently shown high ratings in the Local Government Performance Management System (LGPMS). 

The LGPMS is a web based self-assessment management and development tool that enables municipalities, cities and provinces to determine their capabilities and limitations in the delivery of essential social services, according to Government Assessment Portal. 
The LGPMS attempts to support the development of local governments through improved use of fiscal and human resources, compare local government achievements with set standards and advance these innovations to national platforms for possible replication, explains local DILG key authorities. 

In the previous rounds of Seal of Good Housekeeping evaluations, three Bohol towns got to the DILG list. 

Catigbian, Balilihan and Maribojoc towns each received P1,000,000 as cash award and another resource for locally prioritized programs and projects that dent on the United Nation’s established Millennium Development Goals (MDG). 

The following year, eight more towns barged into the same list after satisfactorily passing the bar of transparency in public service and service capability as sought by the LGPMS. 

The towns of Clarin, Loboc, Dauis, Panglao, San Miguel, Carlos P. Garcia, Jagna and Ubay each qualified for the P1M grant even as Maribojoc, Balilihan and Catigbian easily maintained their seals. 

At the weekly media forum carried over all local radio stations in Bohol, Chatto said the year has been truly fruitful for Bohol. 

Last September, Bohol emerged the “Best Governed Province” among all provinces including component and highly urbanized cities topping them all by capping a total score of 4.935 in a scale of 5. 

Recently, the DiLG also handed Bohol the Pamana ng Lahi regional Award for its exemplary governance, one that qualifies it to the national search. 

The national government, through Technical Education and Skills Development Authority also handed Bohol its prestigious Kabalikat Award for its local innovations in job generation while partnering strongly with the government skills tooling agency. (30)
