Three (3) local government units in Bataan underwent national validation for the 2022 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) on August 31, 2022.
These are the municipalities of Bagac, Hermosa and Samal. The national validators are from DILG Region XII-SOCCSKSARGEN. Assessments were held through documents review and on-site inspections of structures in the LGUs.
SGLG is the highest recognition and the most prestigious award given by the DILG to excellent and performing LGUs in the delivery of public service through compliance to pertinent national laws and guidelines.
Republic Act No. 11292 has also institutionalized the SGLG to recognize the outstanding performance of LGUs particularly in the 10 governance assessment areas.
