129 Calabarzon LGUs pass DILG’s Good Financial Housekeeping


For its consistent compliance with the Full Disclosure Policy (FDP) and conformity with financial administration standards, rules and regulations of the Commission on Audit (COA), 129 local government units from the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon) passed the Good Financial Housekeeping (GFH) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government for the fiscal year 2017.

The GFH is a component of the coveted Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) which is awarded to provincial, city, and municipal governments that have shown remarkable performance across several areas of good governance.

Based on the official list released by the DILG – Bureau of Local Government Supervision on October 6, 88 percent of the 147 LGUs in the region composed of five provincial governments, 18 city governments, and 106 municipal governments made it to the list of 1,559 LGUs nationwide which have obtained the said GFH mark. See full list of 2017 GFH passers here. 

The GFH passers have satisfactorily complied with the minimum criteria set by the DILG specifically obtaining unqualified or qualified COA opinion and compliance to FDP. First implemented in 2010, FDP mandates LGUs to disclose financial transactions to the public in three conspicuous places and uploading the same in an online portal maintained by the Department.

The GFH passers will be given certifications which entitle them to have access to national program windows like the Local Government Support Fund – Assistance to Municipalities (LGSF-AM), Special Local Road Fund (SLRF), and Sagana at Ligtas na Tubig Para sa Lahat (SALINTUBIG) Program.—R4A
