THE Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in Davao Region will implement “Barangay Newly Elected Officials towards Grassroots Renewal and Empowerment for Accountable and Transparent Barangays (BNEO-Great)” program after the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections in May.
DILG regional director Wilhelm Suyko said BNEO-Great is a capacity program with sets of activities and learning interventions to support the changing needs of the barangays.
Through the term-based capacity development program, it is expected that elected barangay officials will appreciate their mandated tasks and responsibilities and elected officials should show improvements in their personal, managerial and leadership skills.
Barangays are also expected to show measurable positive performance towards good governance as well as demonstrate and contribute to the desired public administration values such as transparency, accountability, integrity, and citizen participation.
Suyko said the DILG plans to conduct a series of BNEO-Great capacity development programs in August to December this year. He also urged barangays to contact them through their hotline numbers 297-2701, 297-2606 and 297-2604 for inquiries.
