ILOILO CITY - The DILG Region VI upscales the implementation of the Local Governance Performance Management System (LGPMS) by launching the Regional LGPMS Stewardship Award for Provincial Focal Persons (PFPs), LGPMS Coordinators and DILG Provincial Offices on May 7, 2013 at the DILG Region VI Conference Hall, Iloilo City. The launching was done during the workshop attended by PFPs and their alternates coming from the provinces of Aklan, Antique, Capiz, Guimaras, Iloilo and Negros Occidental and LGPMS Coordinators of the cities of Iloilo and Bacolod.
The LGPMS Stewardship Awards aims to incentivize the "above threshold efforts" both at the organizational and individual levels in relation to the continuing advocacy on the use of the LGPMS system by LGUs and their actions to link information to planning, budgeting, service delivery improvement, project development and legislative agenda.
The launching culminates the workshop conducted by the regional office to further enhance the knowledge skills of LGPMS focal persons and coordinators who are expected to technically assist LGUs in coming up with a quality State of Local Governance Performance Report (SLGPR) for 2012. The SLGPR should have an in-depth analysis highlighting the contributing or underlying factors relating to the high or low achievement of the performance of the LGU in all areas of governance. The PFPs will also assist in the preparation of the State of Local Development Report (SLDR) covering the period 2010-2012.
Regional Director Evelyn A. Trompeta said the activity is crucial for the preparation of the SLGPR with the Provincial Perspective (an analysis of the SLGPRs of the provincial government and component LGUs). The SLGPR and SLDR will be very helpful to the new set of local officials. Thus, PFPs and coordinators must be prepared to assist LGUs to maximize the utilization of the results of the LGPMS in planning, budgeting, preparation of the Capacity Development Agenda and the Executive - Legislative Agenda (ELA) and integration of the results in other LGU systems and processes.
