CSF Receives Performance Challenge Fund [ Monday, 3rd of August 2015 | 2 years ago ]
Mayor Edwin D. Santiago together with San Fernando DILG Officer Engr. Jose Algy Canlas, City Treasurer Mary Ann Bautista and City Engineer Efren De Leon received the award.
The city received 3 Million pesos for the city’s continuation of proposed projects; the money will be used for the concreting of farm to market roads in the city.
According to Mayor EdSa, this will be a great help in continuing the projects of the city in creating a more progressive and developed community.
In 2011 and 2012, the Department of Interior and Local Government through its Performance Challenge Fund provided incentives to LGUs that showed the fundamentals of good governance by meeting the requirements of the Seal of Good Housekeeping.
The PCF subsidy will be used to finance local development projects indicated in the 2014 Annual Investment Program of LGUs consistent with the priority thrusts of the national government.
The PCF shall be used in accordance with its guiding principles in which it would support the advocacy of the LGU in improving overall performance, accelerate local inclusive development, sustain provision of incentives of LGUs, foster cooperation among stakeholders and amplify the civil society organizations in the DILG appraisal and monitoring of LGU projects.
The requirements were accountable governance, transparent governance and the frontline service performance.
A total of seventeen local government units were given the Performance Challenge Funds or PCF, but only twelve were able to receive the awards last Thursday since the other LGUs were not able to complete the necessary requirements of the DILG.
Along with the City of San Fernando, the other recipients were San Jose del Monte, Angat from Bulacan, Guagua, Lubao, Mabalacat, Mexico and Porac from Pampanga, Capas, Concepcion and Gerona from Tarlac, and Limay from Bataan.
The DILG seeks to rationalize national government intergovernmental transfers to LGUs and encourages convergence of local development initiatives and in line with the national development agenda and priorities.
