To ensure the quality and sustainability of the projects, the Project Development and Management Unit (PDMU) of DILG-RO XII conducted a Consultative Conference-cum- Coordination Meeting for PCF Projects last June 5, 2019 at FB Hotel in Koronadal City. Among the participants were the fourteen (14) Local Government Units which have been recipients of the PCF from 2016 onwards.
DILG XII Regional Director Josephine Cabrido- Leysa, CESO V graced the conference with her opening address. In her speech, she encouraged the LGUs to maintain their commitment to the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) awards and remain as awardees if possible. She remains hopeful that the number of awardees for this year will increase.
RD Leysa highlighted the significance of the said Activity wherein LGUs can formulate strategies that they can utilize whenever problems arise during the project implementation. Similarly, LGUs can replicate various best practices which were innovated or introduced by other LGUs in order to uplift their performance in terms of local governance.
Engr. Herminia S. Ontoy PDMU Chief, led the discussion on the guidelines on the implementation of PCF projects and eventually presented the status of the projects per LGU. She posed a challenge to the participating LGUs to be “responsive to the findings given by the Technical Engineers.” According to her, “taking the recommendations given by the engineers will assure us that the project will last longer, thereby benefitting the next generation”.
At the end of the conference, the participating LGUs completed their action plans required for the completion of their targets.
