Assessment team for BSGLG formed
by Jessa Mardy P. Samidan / PIO

A four-man team was formulated to assess three pilot barangays of Baguio City as official entry to this year’s search for Seal of Good Local Governance for the Barangays (SGLGB) spearheaded by the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

The team will be led by DILG City Director Evelyn Trinidad as chairperson with Councilor Michael Lawana, Noel Mabutas of the City Mayor’s Special Services Division, and Rose Taguibos of the Federation of Barangay Health Workers as members.

The team will assess three top performing barangays based on the six indicators set by the DILG, specifically on peace and order, financial administration, disaster preparedness, social protection, business friendliness and competitiveness, and environmental management.

The DILG-Baguio shortlisted Irisan, Fort Del Pilar, and Imelda Village as the city’s official entries to the SGLGB. Documentary requirements to attest the presence of required barangay services will be assessed on completeness and truthfulness before the endorsement is submitted to the DILG-Cordillera.

Trinidad said the SGLGB was patterned after the SGLG for local government units launched in last year but the winners will be announced in the last quarter of 2019.

A “3 plus 1” principle of excellent barangay governance will be used in computing the scores based on the six indicators.

Under the peace and order indicator, the barangay will be assessed on the functionality of Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council and Barangay Peace and Order Committee, together with the performance rate in the Lupong Tagapamayapa incentive awards and maintenance of Registry of Barangay Inhabitants.

For financial administration, the practice of accountability and transparency by adhering with accounting and auditing standards and compliance with the Barangay Full Disclosure Policy plus the percentage increase in local resources shall be the indicators.

Assessment on disaster preparedness will be based on the functionality of the Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction Management (BDRRM) Committee, extent of risk assessment and Early Warning System, extent of preparedness for effective response and recovery, and accomplishment rate of projects reflected in the BDRRM or similar plan.

For the social protection indicator, the barangay will be gauged based on the functionality of the Violence against Women Desk and Barangay Development Council, access to health services in the barangay, and representation of civil society organizations in barangay-based institutions.

For the business friendliness and competitiveness, assessment will focus on the barangays’ efforts in encouraging business and employment with the enactment of Barangay Tax Ordinance and issuance of barangay clearance within seven working days as indicators.

Environmental management will tackle barangays’ compliance with the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 while looking into the presence of materials recovery facility, the presence of a collection system to ensure segregation of wastes at source, and functionality of the Barangay Ecological Solid Waste Management Committee.
