The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) conferred again the 2016 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) to the province of Pangasinan for sustaining excellence in local governance.

In a letter addressed to Gov. Amado I. Espino III, DILG Sec. Ismael Sueno lauded Pangasinan for sustaining its remarkable performance and commitment in upholding the standards of transparency, integrity and service delivery.

During the turnover of awards held November 7 at the Capitol Plaza, Gov. Espino III did not only cited the efforts of the provincial officials but also recognized the support of all Pangasinenses to the various programs of the provincial government.

DILG’s validation report showed that Pangasinan passed all the minimum requirements of the SGLG’s core components and essential areas.

The core components are: financial administration, social protection and disaster preparedness; while essential areas are business friendliness and competitiveness, peace and order, and environment management.

The SGLG award entitles Pangasinan with cash award through the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) to finance various development projects and other program ‘windows’ subject to specific program guidelines.

Under the administration of then Governor now 5th District Representative Amado T. Espino, Jr., Pangasinan was already a recipient of the Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH) award in 2011 and 2012.

The SGH measures the levels of LGU’s compliance to the Department’s Full Disclosure Policy in the areas of budget, revenues and procurement, and has no adverse COA findings, as well as compliance to Anti-Red Tape Act’s requirement.

When the SGH was leveled up to SGLG, the province received again the award in 2015.

SGLG upgraded its criteria in assessing local governance practices of LGUs.  Participating LGUs do not only comply on the requirements of good financial housekeeping, but are also competent in facing threats posed by disasters (Disaster Preparedness), and provide the needs of persons with disabilities, women, indigenous people and children (Social Protection).

SGLG also motivates LGUs to promote investment and create employment (Business-Friendliness and Competitiveness); protect the constituents from threats to life and security (Peace and Order); and safeguard the environment (Environmental Management).
