Subsequent to the launching of the SubayBAYAN or Subaybayan ang Proyekto ng Bayan, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG)- Zambales capacitated the LGU SubayBAYAN Focal Persons in navigating the system during the conduct of the Provincial Roll-Out and Orientation on the SubayBAYAN Project Monitoring and Reporting System. It was held on October 29, 2018 at Polytechnic College of Botolan (PCB), Botolan, Zambales.

The activity was attended by the DILG Zambales Field Officers, DILG Zambales Locally-Funded Projects (LFP) Team, DILG Olongapo City staff, DILG Region III staff, and SubayBAYAN Focal Persons from the 13 municipalities of Zambales, Provincial Government of Zambales (PGZ) and Olongapo City.

It aims to fully orient and train all the SubayBAYAN Focal Persons in the various stages of data processing of the SubayBAYAN. The SubayBAYAN serves as the official platform of the DILG in the monitoring and reporting on the progress of implementation of all Locally-Funded Projects (LFPs) administered by the department.

Cluster Team Leader- LGOO VII Melissa D. Nipal of DILG Zambales and LGOO III Maria Clarissa Dimatulac of DILG Olongapo discussed the overview and the implementing guidelines of the SubayBAYAN. Furthermore, ADAS II Paulin Johanne L. Reyes of DILG Zambales facilitated the hands-on training on the SubayBAYAN Monitoring and Reporting System.

Moreover, a total of 89 projects of the province of Zambales are registered in the SubayBAYAN. With this one-stop-shop monitoring system on the DILG-initiated projects, the department hopes that LGUs will be able to boost their efforts to fast-track their project implementation and strengthen their transparency in local governance.
