LGU Pagbilao awarded Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) 2017

The Local Government Unit of Pagbilao has finally notched the highly-coveted Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) for 2017.

The Calabarzon Regional Office of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on the evening of November 8, 2017 has released the final and official list of SGLG 2017 awardees through its social media accounts. (Read here: Calabarzon SGLG Awardees Announced)

The Pagbilao LGU, headed by Mayor Shierre Ann Portes-Palicpic, emerged one of the seven (7) Municipal Government awardees in Quezon Province, alongside the Municipalities of Gumaca, Mauban, Mulanay, Panukulan, San Antonio and Unisan. Additionally, the Province of Quezon, led by Gov. David C. Suarez, is also an awardee of the SGLG 2017.

The Pagbilao LGU underwent the strict assessment by the Regional Assessment Team of the DILG on May 22-23, 2017. The National Validation was held August 23, 2017. (Read here: LGU Pagbilao Assessed for SGLG 2017)

In the Calabarzon Region, three (3) Provincial Governments are listed as SGLG 2017 recipients: Laguna, Rizal and Quezon. The Municipal Government awardees are: Bauan and Malvar in Batangas Province; Carmona, Kawit, Magallanes, Maragondon, Naic, Rosario and Silang in Cavite Province; Kalayaan, Nagcarlan and Pagsanjan in Laguna; Angono, Binangonan, Tanay and Taytay in Rizal Province; Gumaca, Mauban, Mulanay, Pagbilao, Panukulan, San Antonio and Unisan in Quezon. The City Government awardees include the Cities of Antipolo, Batangas, Biñan, Calamba, Bacoor, Dasmariñas, Imus, San Pedro and Sta. Rosa.

The Seal of Good Local Governance is considered as one of the highest achievements of a local government unit. It is awarded annually by the DILG to deserving LGUs across the country that were able to meet the much stricter “4+1” assessment criteria.

This 2017, for a local government unit to be awarded the highly-coveted Seal, it needs to pass all of the four (4) core areas: Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness, Social Protection, and Peace and Order; and at least one (1) of these areas: Business-Friendliness and Competitiveness; Environmental Protection; and Tourism, Culture, and the Arts.

Along with the SGLG Marker, which stands proof of a responsible, efficient and corruption-free governance, SGLG 2017 recipients are also set to receive cash incentives from the DILG. Said cash incentives will be used by the awardees to finance their local development projects.

The Seal of Good Local Governance is guided by the provisions of Republic Act 7160 also known as the Local Government Code of 1991, the General Appropriations Act of 2017 and Administrative Order No. 267 of 1992.
