ANGELES CITY -- The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) recently cited Angeles City (highly-urbanized city category) for garnering top scores in the Local Governance Performance Management System (LGPMS).
Other local government units in Central Luzon with top scores are Tarlac (provincial category), Cabanatuan (component city category), and San Luis, Aurora (municipal category).
“LGPMS is an online self-assessment management and development tool that enables provincial, city and municipal governments to determine their capabilities and limitations in the delivery of basic services,” DILG Regional Monitoring and Evaluation Division chief Lerrie Hernandez explained.
Administrative Governance covers local legislation; development planning; revenue generation; resource allocation and utilization; customer service-civil application; and human resource management and development while Social Governance encompasses health services; support to education services; support to housing and basic utilities; and peace, security and disaster risk management.
"Economic governance consists of support to agriculture sector; support to fishery services; and entrepreneurship, business and industry promotion and Environmental Governance is composed of forest ecosystem management, freshwater ecosystem management, coast marine ecosystem management, and urban ecosystem management," Hernandez added.
Moreover, Valuing Fundamentals of Good Governance involves participation, transparency, and financial accountability.
