“Seal of Good Housekeeping” program of the DILG-Quezon Province

A repost from www.pia.gov.ph. LUCENA CITY, Quezon, June 14 (PIA) — Thirteen towns in Quezon province are now under assessment by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) relative to the selection of best performing LGUs in connection with the “Seal of Good Housekeeping” program of the DILG.

Dr. Pedro Mendoza, provincial director of the DILG-Quezon said the ‘good housekeeping seal’ is given to LGUs that excelled in the areas of planning, budgeting, revenue mobilization, financial management, budget execution, procurement and resource mobilization. LGUs chosen or stamped with good housekeeping seal will receive cash incentive of P1million each from the DILG’s Performance Challenge Fund (PCF). The names of the 13 towns have been withheld after further evaluation, Mendoza added.

Mendoza also said that LGUs aspiring to receive such cash incentive should have ‘no ‘adverse opinion’ report from the Commission on Audit (CoA) which means they should have complied with all the requirements of the government’s auditing agency.

According to DILG, the Performance Challenge Fund which has a P500M fund allocated by congress is an incentive granted selectively by the government to best performing LGUs that have excelled in the delivery of basic public service to their respective constituents.

Meanwhile, the incentive to be received by the best performing LGUs should be used for the implementation of priority projects of LGUs aligned to the national government priorities in order to achieve the millennium development goals (MDG) as well as maintain core road network to boost tourism and local economic development and comply with the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (PDRRM) Act of 2010 as well as the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.

Last year, 2010, the local government of Pitogo, Quezon received P1M from the DILG’s performance challenge fund after conferring with the ‘Seal of Good Housekeeping”.

The program was launched by DILG Sec. Jesse M. Robredo last year. Fifteen towns nationwide became PCF beneficiaries after awarded with the “Seal of Good Housekeeping” (CPG/RMO, PIA-Quezon)
