Sunday, October 6, 2013
DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has signed an executive order (EO) creating the performance challenge fund (PCF) project implementation team in the city.
The EO 35 defined the PCF as a financial subsidy facility as mandated under the Local Governance Performance Management Program under the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
"The PCF is a facility envisioned to help stimulate local governments to put premium on transparency and accountability to enable them to avail themselves of financial support to jumpstart and sustain local socio-economic development initiatives supportive of national government goals and priorities," read the EO, which Duterte signed on October 3.
The PCF recognizes the good performances of LGUs in internal housekeeping under the areas of planning, fiscal management, transparency and accountability and valuing performance management.
Duterte, through the EO, created a team to implement the PCF effectively. It is composed of the city mayor as chair, city administrator as co-chair, and members from the City Planning and Development Office, City Accountant’s Office, City Engineer’s Office, City Health Office, City Social Services and Development Office, City Environment and Natural Resources Office, City Agriculturist Office, City Council chair on committee on finance, ways and means and appropriations, CDC-NGO representative, and CDC-project monitoring committee-NGO representative.
