CORTES BOHOL, February 1, 2014 (PIA) –As the elections in the country discriminates no one from running for office, the government also makes sure all those newly elected officials in the most basic unit of government knows what they are into. 

In this line, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) puts up the Barangay Newly Elected Officials program, a term-based capacity building program implemented to enhance the proficiency of barangay officials in performing their mandated tasks and responsibilities, said Josie Montes, DILG local government operations officer.

But, while it is term-based capacity development program for officials elected 2013-1016, the DILG sees this a one that must sustain beyond the term, adds Ma. Reina Quilas, another LGOO, citing other components that stretch beyond the term. 

The ultimate goal is to create better performing and more responsible barangay officials who will eventually be model public servants getting awards and recognitions in governance, Quilas points out. 

According to the DILG, this term’s BNEO is set to start within the month to April, considering that Bohol will have to train 10 officials on each of its 1109 barangays. 
Speaking at the weekly Kapihan sa PIA, the DILG through local government officers Montes and Ma. Reina Quilas said the BNEO has been fine-tuned to allow local government officials to put up a planned deliverables. 

A 3-day capacity development seminar for barangay officials, BNEO contains skills trainings on basic rules and responsibilities of barangay officials, basic budgeting, basic finance, basic legislation including parliamentary rules and procedures, revenue generation as well as other specialized courses that would eventually help local government officials perform their tasks efficiently, Montes said. 

Lest people think that the BNEO is like the junkets that most people think would happen during gabs like this, LGOO Quilas explained that the training is also expected to get local leaders present three deliverables. 

The BNEO becomes a venue for local leaders to draft as a team, their Barangay Agenda for Governance and Development, Barangay Development Plan and the Barangay Capacity Development Agenda. 

The BNEO also orients officials to the Barangay Based Institutions which are mandated by law to assure the efficient operation and set the proper venue for peace and progress in the barangays.

A course which is also available in local government academies and training institutions, the BNEO can also be gleaned from the bible of the local governments and a simplified primer available at the town LGOOs, Quilas said.
