Six (6) local government units (LGUs) in Region 6 were recognized by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) for their exemplary performance in complementing the national government’s efforts in the eradication of the country’s woes on illegal drugs.
The City of Passi and municipalities of Alimodian, Anilao, Dueñas, and Dingle in the Province of Iloilo, and the Municipality of San Jose de Buenavista in Antique received the 2019 National ADAC Performance Award, in a ceremony held at the Manila Hotel on December 16, 2019.
The six municipalities achieved one hundred (100) or perfect score with an adjectival rating of ideal (highly functional) based on the 2018 ADAC Performance Audit.
Further, the award is given to LGUs which have maintained or decreased their drug affectation as reported by the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency. LGUs which recorded an increase or maintained 100% drug affectation, even though they have high ADAC functionality scores, are disqualified.
DILG Undersecretary Ricojudge Janvier Echiverri congratulated the LGUs and encouraged them to continue what they have started in the campaign against illegal drugs.
“Do not cease and never get tired. Our relentless campaign against illegal drugs are already paying off. Let us hold on to the momentum that we have,” he said.
During the ADAC performance audit, the ADACs’ functionality are adjudged on the following criteria: (1) organization, (2) conduct of quarterly meetings, (3) allocation of funds, (4) implementation of ADAC plans and programs, (5) support to ADACs in component LGUs, and (5) innovations.
Provincial, regional and national audit teams spearheaded the audit process which included data gathering and verification, audit results calibration and finalization, and presentation of audit results.
Pursuant to Joint Memorandum Circular No. 2018-01 entitled, ‘Implementing Guidelines on the Functionality and Effectiveness of Local Anti-Drug Abuse Councils,’ and the DILG’s Memorandum Circular No. 2019-117 or the ‘2018 Anti-Drug Abuse Council Performance Audit,” the National ADAC Performance Award was conceptualized to institutionalize a system of recognition for ADACs with exemplary performance, inspire LGUs and their ADACs to excel in the performance of their duties and responsibilities, and gather anti-illegal drug innovations and distinctive programs implemented by LGUs.
