Quezon City Conferred DILG 2017 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) Print

The Quezon City Local Government was awarded the 2017 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), passing all the assessment criteria.
According to the DILG, the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) symbolizes integrity and good performance through continuing governance reform and sustained local development. The SGLG is a progressive assessment system adopted by the Department to give distinction to remarkable local government performance across several areas.
The Seal is also an indication that the local government’s governance frameworks are aligned with the National Government’s goals as delineated in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) to bring about the vision of inclusive growth, high trust society and a globally-competitive knowledge economy based on the principles of “Malasakit, Pagbabago at Patuloy na Pag-unlad”.

This year, the DILG raised its overall assessment criteria from “3+1” to “4+1”. Peace and order has been added to the core assessment areas, which include Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness, and Social Protection. The new essential area is Tourism, Culture and Arts, which was introduced to measure the LGUs efforts along this concern.
At least 81 provinces, 145 cities and about 1,489 municipalities were evaluated for this year’s SGLG.

LGUs that receive the SGLG will have access to DILG’s other programs and capacity development assistance. They will also be eligible to access the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) to finance their local development initiatives.
SGLG is guided by the provisions of the Republic Act 7160 (the Local Government Code of 1991), the General Appropriations Act of 2017 and Administrative Order No. 267 of 1992.
