Glan earns ‘Seal of Good Housekeeping’

GLAN, Sarangani, Jan 12 (PIA) -- In recognition of its exemplary performance in governance, transparency and accountability, the local government unit (LGU) of Glan has been chosen as one of recipients of the 2012 Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH) awards of the Department of Interior and Local Government.

A mechanism that recognizes good performance, the SGH is given to LGUs that have excelled in the areas of planning, budgeting, revenue mobilization, sound fiscal management and budget execution, procurement and resource mobilization, transparency and accountability, and giving value to performance management.

An SGH award means that a recipient LGU has religiously complied with all the provisions of the Anti-Red Tape Act as well as the Full Disclosure Policy of the DILG with regard to project implementation and financial transactions.

Aside from topping the standards on full disclosure and transparency, LGU-Glan bagged the award because of its “no adverse findings” from the Commission on Audit, and because of the efficiency in the implementation of its programs and projects.

A P1 million incentive from the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) is usually given to the best performing LGUs, but, for one reason or another, DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo had decided to up the PCF incentive for Glan to P2 million, according to Zorayda Grafilo-Labos, chief, DILG-Glan.

“Surely, this is something for Glan to be proud of and another feather in the cap of the administration of Mayor Victor James Yap, Sr.,” she said.

She said the incentive is in line with the Millennium Development Goals for the implementation of priority projects designed to boost tourism and local economic development as well as comply with the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 and the Ecological and Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.

For tourism and local economic development, the projects include school buildings, rural health units, health centers and birthing facilities, roads, bridges, tourism facilities, irrigation systems, post harvest facilities, cold storage facilities, ports and wharves and other economic infrastructures.

On the other hand, projects--such as flood control, reforestation, solid waste management facilities, storm drainage and related flood protection---are on tap for Adaptation to Climate Change and Disaster Preparedness. (GLAN INFO & NEWS SERVICE/PIA GENERAL SANTOS CITY)
