Orani cascades SGLG to the barangays

ORANI, Bataan – On November 6, 2018, the DILG issued Memorandum Circular No. 2018-194, the 2018 Seal of Good Local Governance for Barangay (SGLGB) aimed at encouraging and challenging the barangays to scale up its performance and practices of good governance adhering to the principles of accountability, transparency, performance and effectiveness.
A consistent SGLG awardee, the local government of Orani, with Mayor Efren “Bondjong” Pascual, Jr. at the helm, even before the issuance of the above mentioned Memorandum Circular has already conceptualized and laid down the guidelines in cascading said award and incentive program to the 29 barangays of said municipality.
Taking off from the Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH), the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG), award and incentive program is the Department of the Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) response to the clamor of the people for integrity and performance in public service, challenging local governments to continue good governance practices while providing better public services.
To date, it continues to challenge provincial, city, and municipal governments to do better not only today but also in the years to come.
Originally, the SGLG assessment covers all provinces, cities, and municipalities across the country. However, cognizant of the crucial role being played by the barangay in the overall development of the community and that of the nation, the DILG has embarked on cascading the implementation of the SGLG to the grass root level, to the barangays.
Based on the assessment criteria provided by the DILG, Orani has four (4) core areas, namely: Peace and Order, Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness, and Environmental Management; coupled with two (2) essential areas: Social Protection and Business Friendliness and Competitiveness.
To date, they are done with the validation; calibration is set on March 11-13. To show their support to this program, Governor Abet Garcia has committed 3M pesos for the incentives, in addition to the 2M pesos pledged by the LGU of Orani and another 5M pesos, making the total amount of incentives to be divided among all qualifying barangays to 10M pesos.
