October 29, 2011
MANILA, Philippines — Tarlac province
and ten of its municipalities were given the Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH)
by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), officials
DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo bestowed the honor on Tarlac Governor Victor
Yap and the mayors of San Manuel, Ramos, Pura, Anao, Bamban, Camiling,
Capas, Mayantoc, Moncada and Paniqui in a ceremony held at Clark Freeport,
“The SGH is conferred to local government units (LGUs) that have excelled
in the areas of planning, budgeting, revenue mobilization, financial
management and budget execution, procurement and resource mobilization,”
said Ria Ramos of DILG-Tarlac.
LGU recipients of the said merit have obtained a “no adverse” report from
the Commission on Audit (CoA) which means that they have complied with all
the requirements of the government’s auditing agency.
“SGH honorees automatically vie for the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF)
wherein chosen LGUs receive P1 million each from the national government
which will be utilized for projects supportive to the attainment of the
United Nations Millennium Development Goals such as eradicate extreme
poverty and hunger, achieve universal primary education, reduce child
mortality and promote gender equality,” Ramos said.
For 2011, the PCF grantees in Tarlac were the municipalities of Ramos,
Pura, Anao and San Manuel.
Apart from being a requirement for the PCF, the SGH is also a criterion
in the selection of regional and national Gawad Pamana ng Lahi (GPL)
