Pursuant to the implementation of SubayBAYAN or the "Subaybayan ang Proyekto ng Bayan", as the department's official platform of transparency in LGU's implementation of Locally Funded Projects, the Department of the Interior and Local Government – (DILG) Zambales capacitated and trained its Field Officers and LGU SubayBAYAN Focal Persons during the conduct of SubayBAYAN Follow-Through Training-Workshop on November 12, 2019 at Vista Marina Hotel and Resort, Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
The activity was facilitated by the DILG Zambales headed by Provincial Director Armi V. Bactad, CESO V, in coordination with the DILG Central and Regional Office.
Present during the activity are 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 aimed to further enhance the capacity of the participants in data processing, while at the same time addressing inconsistencies being encountered in the system.
The SubayBAYAN is the official portal of the Department in the reporting, monitoring and providing the public with an accurate information on the implementation of Locally Funded Projects (LFPs). It provides real time information on various projects' physical and financial status, and offers feedback mechanisms.
With this capacity-building activity, the department hopes that the LGUs will be able to boost their efforts to fast track the project implementation in order to cater the rising public expectations when it comes to service delivery.
