Rey Anthony Chiu 


TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Jan 6 (PIA) – If the recent local government performance results were any indicator, then governance in Bohol must be excellently run with 27 new towns now showing off their seals of good housekeeping (SGH). 

By this, these new 27 towns qualify to get grants from the Millennium Challenge Fund for additional resource in their efforts to beat the United Nation’s established millennium development goals. 

The overseer of all local government operations in the country; the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) awards the seal to local government units which have satisfactorily shown exemplary transparency and accountability, participation and performance innovation into institutionalized status for better service to their constituents and the country in general. 

LGUs with exemplary performance in good governance and internal housekeeping which can be gleaned from good planning, sound fiscal management, values transparency and accountability and a good performance monitoring, are awarded the seal, says DILG Bohol SGH focal person Maria Reina Quilas. 

All LGUS are subjected to the test of good housekeeping, DILG in its website said. 

But for LGUS to earn the seal and qualify for the grant, they must comply with the SGH criteria in key governance performance areas in planning, budgeting, revenue and resource mobilization, fiscal management and budget execution and procurement. 

Passing the threshold for these criteria in the third round of evaluations are Tagbilaran City, Alburquerque, Antequera, Baclayon, Bien Unido, Bilar, Buenavista, Calape, Catigbian. 

Corella, Danao, Dimiao, Garcia-Hernandez, Getafe, Guindulman, Inabanga, Lila, Loon, Sagbayan, San Isidro, Sevilla, Sikatuna, Talibon, Trinidad, Tubigon and Valencia. 

Earlier, the towns of Maribojoc, Catigbian and Balilihan received the awards during the first round of evaluations. 

Then, Loboc, Panglao, Dauis, Clarin, Pres. Carlos P. Garcia, San Miguel, Jagna and Ubay snagged the awards during the second round of local government performance management system assessments. 

This ten makes 36 towns and city in Bohol with the seal, 11 more towns of Bohol’s 47 hoping to get the stamp as soon. 

The third round of evaluations had also the DILG formally stamping to Bohol Province the Seal of Good Housekeeping, one of the very few provincial governments brandishing the citation, says Governor Edgar Chatto last week. (30)
