SIQUIJOR, Feb 20 (PIA) -- Local government units only have until March 23, 2012 to enter and update data in the local governance performance management system (LGPMS) web database.
Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG)-Siquijor officer-in-charge Kenneth Kilat said a DILG memorandum advised LGUs that the LGPMS online data capture form (DCF) for 2011 is now available, so that LGPMS LGU-data encoders can now enter data or information into the system.
The LGPMS is an online tool that assesses LGU performance in the areas of administrative, social, economic and environmental governance. It also included assessment on the fundamentals of governance which include transparency, participation and financial accountability, Kilat said.
LGUs that fail to enter data to the said database will not be able to generate an LGPMS electronic report, the Memo also said.
Kilat said that the LGPMS can help in preparation of annual reports by automatically generating data such as state of local governance performance, state of local development, and financial performance.
To ensure the completion and validation of data entries within the prescribed timeline, the DILG has advised the local government operation officers or LGPMS focal persons to provide assistance to the LGUs within their jurisdiction. (mbcn/rac/PIA-Siquijor)
