8 LGUs in Cordillera assessed outstanding in peace & order
by Jessa Mardy P. Samidan / PIO

Eight local government units in the Cordillera have earned good reviews in the 2018 performance audit conducted by the Peace and Order Council (POC) under the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

The city government of Baguio got a rating of 90.86 percent earning a first level rank.

Based on the DILG report, the city was able to perfect its score in four out of five pillars particularly on the presence of all required documents related to peace and order as well as the presence of good practice on Integrated Participatory Community Building Program (IPCBP) for Persons with Substance Use Disorder (PSUD).

The performance audit team gave bearing to the city’s effort in establishing its program on PSUD as best practice of the City Human Rights Justice Peace and Order Council.

Baguio fell short of percentage point on Pillar 4 having a 30.86 percent rating out of 40 due to the late submission of POC reporting forms for the first and second quarter of 2018 including the late submission of the POC Secretariat 2018 Annual Report.

Also garnering an outstanding POC performance is the 5th class-component City of Tabuk, Kalinga with an 82 percent final score while Ifugao had a final score of 87.43 percent.

In the municipalities’ category, the second class towns of Bontoc and Paracelis in Mountain Province were able to get a final score of 93.14 percent.

The same score was given to the 4th class municipalities of Bauko and Tadian as well as the 5th class town of Barlig, also in Mountain Province.

LGUs with outstanding final score will be eligible for the Most Outstanding Peace and Order Award after passing a rigorous validation phase by the DILG central office.

Other LGUs in the region passed the POC performance audit except for 16 towns that were given a failing mark due to lack of good practice to comply with Pillar 5 checklist.

The LGUs that failed the peace and order audit include Mankayan and Tublay in Benguet and Boliney, Bucloc, Daguioman, Lacub, Lagangilang, Lagayan, Licuan-Baay, Malibcong, Manabo, Peñarrubia, Pidigan, Sallapadan, San Quintin, and Tayum all in Abra.
