It pays to be prompt and compliant - DILG

by Alice E. Nicart

BORONGAN CITY, Eastern Samar, Jan 11 (PIA) –- The Aquinogovernment is ready to acknowledge good deeds, particularly transparency - whether the doer is an individual, a group, of a local government unit (LGU). In this case, it is a local government unit that is always ready and prepared to submit the required documents to the central office.

So said Nida B. de la Cruz, program manager of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) here, as she referred to the provincial local government unit of Eastern Samar which was recently declared a recipient of the Good Housekeeping Seal.

The prompt and early compliance of the LGU in submitting the needed documents resulted in the province’s entry to the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal. It meant a cash incentive of P15 million from the DILG’s Local Support Fund (LSF).

Asked for comment, Gov. Conrado Nicart was elated because according to him, he can pursue his plan to construct more farming facilities with the said financial assistance without so much lobbying with some friends in the Senate.

De la Cruz added that should Eastern Samar continue to comply this 1st quarter, more cash incentives will be accorded of the province to the tune of P7 million. Municipal LGUs would be awarded as well with P1 million each.

Together with the province, the following municipal LGUs were also able to meet the DILG initial requirements and were awarded the following: Balangiga - P600 thousand; Dolores – P1 million; Hernani - P400 thousand; Maydolong - P900 thousand; San Julian - P600 thousand; Sulat - P700 thousand; and Guiuan - P1 million.

Similarly, should they be able to sustain the DILG requirements, they would be candidates to receive the next financial support as previously mentioned.

Good Housekeeping Seal is awarded as incentive to good performing LGUs vis-à-vis sound fiscal management, transparency, and accountability which is in line with President Benigno Aquino’s advocacy and promise to the Filipino people.(PIA-Eastern Samar/AEN)
