A signing of Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the Management Information System (MIS) for the Comprehensive Development Plans (CDP) and MIS Workshop were held on March 19, 2019 at Smallville 21 Hotel, Iloilo City.  The said activities signify the MIS for CDP Formulation takes off in Region 6.
Considering the low number of approved Comprehensive Development Plans (CDPs) in Region 6, DILG in partnership with University of the Philippines – Visayas (UPV) developed the “SUC-Assisted Approach in the formulation of the Comprehensive Development Plan”. The launching of the Management Information System (MIS) for CDP Formulation is one of the components of the program.
This is a software developed to respond to the challenges in the generation, management and updating of data of the Local Government Units (LGUs).  This software shall serve as management and data storage tool for LGUs in the collection of primary and secondary data and will be utilized for the Ecological Profile (EP) of the target LGUs.
The program targets LGUs that have not yet formulated their CDPs and Comprehensive Land Use Plans (CLUPs); LGUs revising or updating their CDPs; and LGUs without CDPs but with updated CLUP and/or for SP review.
“The only counterpart that DILG is asking from you is the commitment to finish your Comprehensive Development Plans through the series of workshops and writeshops. With the partnership of the University of the Philippines-Visayas (UPV) and DILG, we hope na maubos ang LGUs na walang CDPs sa Region 6.” said DILG R6 OIC-RD Engr. Ariel O. Iglesia during the MIS Workshop.
Representatives from the first batch of target LGUs which came from Province of Antique (Barbaza, Bugasong, Culasi, Tibiao, Hamtic and Pandan), Iloilo (Anilao, Banate, Carles, San Enrique and Sara) and Capiz (Pres. Roxas) gathered to join the MOA signing.
The program is supported by the Local Government Support Fund-Assistance to the Disadvantaged Municipalities (LGSF-ADM) Program which is designed to equitably assist all municipalities in the delivery of basic services by providing financial subsidy to municipalities for the implementation of their priority programs and projects.   Support to Local Government Programs – Oversight Project Management Office (SLGP-OPMO) provided the funds amounting to Php 25M through a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed last March 23, 2018.
With the MIS, the LGUs now have a specific system in place to observe proper data generation, management and updating in compliance to the demand of latest policies and guidelines.#
