The State University was able to customize the eBPLS of DILG for the Municipal Government of Limay, Bataan, thus, paving the way for the LGU to utilize the system resulting to a more efficient and effective governance and management.
The award was given on March 12, 2014 at the BPSU by CDD Chief Martin Porres B. Moral in behalf of RD Florida M. Dijan and received by Dr. Gregorio J. Rodis, Vice-President for Administration and Finance and Dr. Teresita R. Castillo, Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs in behalf of Dr. Delfin O. Magpantay, President.
The implementation of the Alliance on the Streamlining the eBPLS and for the LGUs in Central Luzon is an initiative of the DILGR3 Regional Management to support national government’s efforts in the pursuit of excellence in local governance. This is in accordance with the thrust of the national government to curb red tape in the bureaucracy and rid the systems of delays and unwarranted requirements. To realize the attainment of more business-friendly local government units, an innovative approach was employed – forging public-private alliance.
The DILG’s partnership with Bataan Peninsula State University and the Bataan Chamber of Commerce and Industry has paved the way for the successful customization of the generic eBPLS software of the Department for the pilot recipient municipality of Limay, Bataan.
According to the LGU Officials, the municipality has benefited from the system through the improved and efficient collection of business taxes that resulted to an increased income.
With this milestone, the Department is planning to showcase the LGU as “learning center” for replication of other LGU’s in the Province.
