The DILG Nueva Ecija in coordination with the Provincial Government of Nueva Ecija conducted the Provincial Roll-out on the Gender and Development Plan and Budget Monitoring System (GADPBMS) on January 29, 2020 at Sierra Madre Suites, Palayan City, Nueva Ecija.
This activity aimed to introduce the use of GADPBMS to City/Municipal GAD Focal Person and Provincial Planning and Development Office to expedite the submission and review process of GAD Accomplishment Report and Plan and Budget. This is in accordance with the DILG Unnumbered Memorandum dated January 08, 2020 issued by Dir. Anna Liza F. Bonagua of the Bureau of Local Government Development. Further, LGUs need to adapt the use of the online monitoring system as well as recommend strategies for the further development and enhancement of the system. The integration of online mechanism is necessary for the fast transaction and smooth flow of GAD operations.
Assistant Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Marijune Munsayac welcomed the participants while LGOO VI Alfa Krista C. Reyes in her opening message stated that the GPBMS will play a very important part in the validation under the Social Protection indicator of the Seal of Good Local Governance Law. LGOO V Edgardo W. Adriano, Jr. on the other hand discussed the mechanisms and facilitated the hands-on simulation of the GADPBMS.
