DILG Region 3 conducted its First Quarter Program Evaluation for Calendar Year 2012 on April 12, 2012 at DILG Regional Office, City of San Fernando, Pampanga.
The evaluation was aimed to address issues and concerns encountered by the regional and field offices in terms of DILG program implementation during the first quarter of this year. It also served a venue for the Regional Management, Provincial Directors, City Directors and Cluster Team Leaders to identify better and more effective mechanisms and strategies on how to improve the field and regional operations in the succeeding quarters.
Highlights of the activity include the presentation of CY 2012 First Quarter Accomplishments by LGOO IV Carren C. Musni, designated Regional Planning Officer, discussion of program updates and deliverables for the second quarter by the Division Chiefs of the Capability Development Division (CDD), Monitoring and Evaluation Division (MED), and Financial and Administrative Division (FAD), and clarification of legal issues concerning LGUs by ARD Jonathan Paul Leusen, Jr. and Regional Legal Officer Myron Cunanan.
Programs, projects and activities discussed included, among others, conduct of 47th Batch Induction Training, LGU Revenue Code Updating, Installation of MDG Tracking System LGPMS, LGU Webpage Development, CBDRM implementation, LGPMS Data Validation, BGPMS roll-out, SGH assessment, PCF project requirements monitoring, SaLin Tubig beneficiaries, LTIA assessment, BPLS adoption, conduct of a Regional Peace and Order Forum, training and travel policies for local officials and DILG personnel, submission of Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN), Clustering strategy of Cluster Team Leaders (CTLs) and Search for Best DILG Regional Director/ Provincial/City Teams.
Towards the end of the activity, a video presentation on the Rebirth of an Eagle was shown. The video conveyed the analogy of eagles and humans and the need for a rebirth process and transition from one state to another, that without this change, an individual would not grow and become what he is meant to be. Likewise, an AVP on the principle of TEAM (Together, Everybody Achieves More!) was played depicting the message, “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, and working together is success”.
In closing, RD Florida M. Dijan, urged everyone to heighten passion for performance and develop stronger camaraderie between and among peers. She likewise enjoined Field Officers to strengthen local partnerships, the DILG having an oversight function over LGUs. She is in high hopes in leading an excellent team towards achieving the best performing region.
