The City Government of Mati recently underwent the DILG’s national validation for the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) programs. This aims to promote transparency and elevate the level of good governance in delivering public service to its constituents.
The SGLG is a recognition of good performance of provincial, city and municipal governments, not only on financial housekeeping, but also on other areas that directly benefit the people.
In order to become a recipient of the SGLG which will make the LGU eligible to access the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) which is a support fund to finance local development initiatives in furtherance of national government goals and strategic thrusts, a local government shall pass all three core assessment areas, namely: Good Financial Housekeeping, Disaster Preparedness and Social Protection; and at least one essential assessment area namely: Business Friendly and Competitiveness, Peace and Order, or Environmental Management.
Eyeing for the SGLG, the City of Mati could not just simply leave things to chances but is performing better, ensuring to meet the set criteria as indicated in the pre-assessment survey.
Our gratitude to the national validators from DILG Zamboanga Sibugay headed by LGOO VI Oliver Ombus together with LGOO VI Patrick Paglinawan for having a great time with us.
