DILG 2 registers 100% compliance to FDP

by Thelma C. Bicarme and Vince dela Rosa

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Jan. 16 (PIA) -- The 100 percent compliance of the five provinces, 90 municipalities and three cities of Region 2 to the Full Disclosure Policy (FDP) was the most laudable accomplishment for calendar year 2011 of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in the region.

Regional Director Rolando L. Rafael said the employees of the agency had exerted extra effort which resulted in the LGUs’ full compliance with Republic Act 9485, otherwise known as the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007. This required them to establish their respective Citizen’s Charter to further improve public service efficiency and to curb red-tape, and other requirements of the government.

The regional director said their agency's innovations include the conduct of various trainings and seminars for the newly-elected barangay officials, Sangguniang Kabataan, local officials and functionaries and members of barangay-based institutions, and implementation of the Department’s Performance Challenge Fund and Seal of Good Housekeeping programs that give cash incentives to high-performing LGUs, and LGU Incentives and Awards to give due recognition to the exemplary performance and achievements of the barangays along good governance.

He said that a series of seminars were also undertaken by the agency on disaster risk reduction and management and climate change adaptation with the end-view of making LGUs and barangays disaster-resilient.

“In these seminars, we had emphasized the need for the communities to adopt the ‘You are On Your Own’ or YOYO doctrine, meaning that these communities have to help themselves during emergencies or disaster times,” he further said.

RD Rafael said their office’s annual accomplishments have contributed to the overall effort of the Department to make all LGUs of the country participative, accountable, responsive and transparent.

It can be recalled that Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse M. Robredo, during his June 30, 2011 visit in the region to grace the Tapatan Roadshow on FDP, had lauded the effort of the DILG regional and field officers in ensuring the compliance of all provincial governors, city and municipal mayors of the region to the said policy.

The secretary, likewise, commended the local chief executives for their support to the policy as well as programs, projects and activities (PPAs) of the Department.

Anchored on the principle under the 1987 Philippine Constitutions that guarantees the people’s right to information and based on the Local Government Code (R.A.7160) and the 2010 General Appropriations Act, the FDP mandated local government units to post their budget and finances on their websites, print media and conspicuous places in their respective areas of responsibility.
