DILG IV-A lauds Calabarzon LGUs that get Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office IV-A has lauded the 129 local government units in Calabarzon Region that passed the 2017 Good Financial Housekeeping (GFH).
Manuel Q. Gotis, Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Regional Director of the DILG Regional Office IV-A, has commended the efforts of the Calabarzon LGUs for its compliance with the auditing standards, rules, and regulations of the Commission on Audit (COA).
The Region IV-A is composed of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon.
“Sa lahat ng LGUs na nakapasa sa Good Financial Housekeeping, kami po ay bumabati sa inyong lahat sa pagpapakita ninyo ng kaayusan sa paglalahad ng inyong mga financial transactions at pagsisikap na mapaunlad ang ating bayan,” he said.
Based on the list released by the DILG 88% of the 147 LGUs in the region composed of five provincial governments, 18 city governments, and 106 municipal governments made it to the list of 1,559 LGUs nationwide which have obtained the said GFH mark.
“The said GFH passers have satisfactorily complied with the minimum criteria set by the DILG specifically obtaining an unqualified or qualified opinion from COA and compliance to Department’s full disclosure policy,” the DILG 4-A said.
With the recent development, Gotis expressed hope for all the LGUs in the Calabarzon region to reach100-percent compliance rate in the succeeding GFH assessments.
“Noong umpisahan natin ito noong 2010, ay kakaunti pa lamang na lokal na mga pamahalaan ang pumapasa. Sana sa lalong madaling panahon ay makapasa na ang lahat ng 147 LGUs sa Calabarzon para 100-percent compliance na tayo,” Gotis said.
“Sana gayahin kayo ng lahat ng LGUs sa buong bansa pagdating sa paggastos ng pera ng bayan nang sa gayon ay patuloy nating maitaas ang antas ng paglilingkod sa bayan,” the OIC-regional director added.
