CITY OF MALOLOS- Bulacan receives another award recognizing its exemplary performance in local governance as the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) conferred Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado the Gawad Pamana ng Lahi Award at PICC in Pasay City yesterday.
After a rigorous process of evaluation and validation, Bulacan emerges on top of all the provinces in the region.
Among the criteria for this award are information from the database of the on-line Local Governance Performance Management System (LGPMS), Seal of Good Housekeeping, international organization or national government agency-bestowed awards, and acknowledged innovations.
Earlier, Bulacan was cited as one of the best governed province according to LGPMS 2010 report with the score of 4.8628.
“Sa kabila ng mga kalamidad na pinagdaanan ng lalawigan, nagpapakita ito na kinikilala pa rin ng ating pamahalaang nasyunal ang pagsisikap ng Bulacan na maitaas ang kabuhayan ng mga Bulakenyo sa pamamagitan ng mahusay na pamamahala. Ito rin ay bunga ng pagkakaisa ng mga mamamayan at epektibong balangkas ng lokal na pamahalaan,” said Alvarado.
Aside from the trophy, DILG also gives Bulacan a P3 million-grant as an incentive for bagging this award.
“Isasaayos natin kung saan natin gagamitin ang P3 million grant mula sa DILG. Pangunahin na nating isasaalang-alang ang pangangalaga sa kapaligiran, pag-iibayo sa ating disaster preparedness at pagdaragdag ng makabagong kagamitan sa ating mga ospital,” the governor added.
President Benigno Simeon Aquino III also lauded the rehabilitation efforts of local government units like Bulacan which were affected by the previous typhoons.
The Gawad Pamana ng Lahi Award is conferred to a province, city or municipality for reason of exemplary performance in administrative, social, economic and environmental governance.
This yearly award is also an instrument to scale-up the valuing of accountability, transparency and involvement to local administration and development. ###
