Manuel Q. Gotis, CESO III, DILG-Bureau of Local Government Supervision (BLGS) Director and Concurrent Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Regional Director of the DILG Regional Office IV-A, commended the efforts of the LGUs for its consistent compliance with the full disclosure policy and conformity with the auditing standards, rules, and regulations of the Commission on Audit (COA).

“Sa lahat ng LGUs na nakapasa sa Good Financial Housekeeping, kami po ay bumabati sa inyong lahat sa pagpapakita ninyo ng kaayusan sa paglalahad ng inyong mga financial transactions at pagsisikap na mapaunlad ang ating bayan,” he said.

Based on the official list released by the DILG – BLGS 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.

The said GFH passers have satisfactorily complied with the minimum criteria set by the DILG specifically obtaining an unqualified or qualified opinion from COA and compliance to Department’s full disclosure policy.

Citing the increased passing rate, RD Gotis expressed hope for all the LGUs in the Calabarzon region to set a 100-percent compliance rate in the succeeding GFH assessments.

“Noong umpisahan natin ito noong 2010, ay kakaunti pa lamang na lokal na mga pamahalaan ang pumapasa. Sana sa lalong madaling panahon ay makapasa na ang lahat ng 147 LGUs sa Calabarzon para 100-percent compliance na tayo,” he said.

“Sana gayahin kayo ng lahat ng LGUs sa buong bansa pagdating sa paggastos ng pera ng bayan nang sa gayon ay patuloy nating maitaas ang antas ng paglilingkod sa bayan,” the OIC-regional director added.
