Tacloban City gets DILG seal of “Good Financial Housekeeping” anew

TACLOBAN CITY – The City Government of Tacloban recently passed the Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping (SGFH) – one of the core assessment areas of the Seal of Good Local Governance conceived to promote transparency and accountability in Local Government Operations by the Department of Interior Local Government (DILG).

In an official list released by the Bureau of Local Government Section (BLGS) of the Regional DILG signed by Alfred Mamuyac, Melany Quiton, and Director Atty Odilon Pasaraba, Tacloban passed the 2018 SGFH along with six other cities in the region.

City DILG Director Atty. Darwin Bibar, in an interview over “Sumat Tacloban” – the biweekly radio program of the City Information Office, said that the certification is an indication that the local government unit under the leadership of Mayor Cristina G. Romualdez is “compliant with the accounting and auditing standards, rules and regulations.”

He added that other areas considered for the seal were the functionality of the local development council, adherence of the local government to the full disclosure policy and the good utilization rate of the development fund, the COA Audit Opinion, and sound revenue generation initiatives.

The DILG financial clearance got by LGU Tacloban is the latest to the growing list of national and regional awards it has reaped in the past years such as Seal of Child Friendly Local Governance Award, the Seal of Good Local Governance, the Most Improved Local Government Unit (LGU) among highly Urbanized Cities Award by the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI), the Gawad Parangal Hall of Fame Award for the Best Cooperative Office in the Country, and the Gawad Kalasag Award for the Tacloban City Rescue Unit. – H.J.
