Bottom-up budgeting to cover all barangays next year

TAGBILARAN CITY, Jan. 08 (PIA)--The government will expand the coverage of the bottom-up budgeting (BuB) program to cover 42,036 barangays nationwide starting next year, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) announced yesterday.

DBM Secretary Florencio ‘Butch’ Abad said that while all barangays are beneficiaries of the program, implementation shall be in batches.

He said the first 12,000 barangays will receive funding from the national government in 2017. 

The Barangay BuB will provide a subsidy of P1 million to each barangay to be used for the implementation of one to two projects they have identified. 
The program is expected to aid barangays in better formulating poverty reduction action plans and monitoring the delivery of basic services in the communities.

Abad spoke before barangay officials from Albur, Antequera, Baclayon, Calape, Bien Unido, Buenavista, Carlos P Garcia, Dagohoy, Danao, Alicia, Anda, Batuan, Bilar, Candijay, Carmen, and Dimiao at the Consultation Forum on the Barangay Bottom Up Budgeting at JJ’s Seafood Village yesterday.

The consultation forum prepares barangays for Barangay BuB implementation in 14,000 pilot barangays next year. 

The 2-day consultation forum also gives way to the launching of the P6 billion Konkreto at Ayos na Lansangan at Daan Tungo sa Pangkalahatang Kaunlaran (KALSADA) program, a local roads and reform program culled from the Bohol experience and lobbied by Bohol Gov. Edgar Chatto at the national level through the local authorities leagues. 

Abad explained the concept of BuB began in 2013, anchored on President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino's vision of inclusive growth, empowered communities, and a strong democracy. 

The secretary also presented timelines and requirements for the implementation of BuB at the barangay level. 

Gov. Chatto, Vice Gov. Concepcion Lim and ABC President Romulo Cepedoza welcomed the Budget Secretary who also came with DSWD Sec. Dinky Soliman yesterday. (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
