ANNUAL REPORT

Department of the Interior and Local Government

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 CY 2013 proved to be a year of challenges and great expectations for the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region IX in relation to technical, administrative and in its overall scope of organizational operations in general.

Having faced with various opportunities, situations and circumstances along the way, DILG Region IX under the stewardship of Regional Director Paisal O. Abutazil, has been consistently relentless in its efforts of initiating, introducing and adapting reforms and strategies, and strengthening and further refining its existing operational mechanisms directed towards achieving the main thrusts and objectives of the Department, as strongly espoused by Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas.

With transparency, accountability and active people participation as the basic and governing tenets of its operations, the various Field Operating Units (FOUs) of DILG in the entire Zamboanga Peninsula extended the necessary support to regional management through the Municipal Local Government Operations Officers (MLGOOs) in an effort to realize its goals and targets for 2013 in terms of program and project implementation in the five (3) Provinces of Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga Sibugay; five (5) Cities of Dapitan, Dipolog, Isabela, Pagadian and Zamboanga and in all the sixty-seven (67) municipalities in the region, respectively.

Aligned with the thrusts and objectives of the national government, DILG Region IX forged successful partnerships with the different local government units (LGUs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and National Government Agencies (NGAs) to ensure that programs and projects are cascaded, interpreted and successfully implemented at all levels of governance.

Priority thrusts and programs covered under each of the program outcome such as the Full Disclosure Policy (FDP), Sagana at Ligtas na Tubig sa Lahat (SaLinTubig), Payapa at Masagang Pamayanan (PaMaNa), Bottom-Up Planning and Budgeting (BUPB), Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH), Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM-CCA), Streamlining Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS) among others, and LGU compliance to the various Department directives and issuances have been closely monitored and complied with.

Further, technical assistance and capacity building interventions were provided and extended to LGUs to address identified governance performance gaps.

 Despite the challenges encountered in the various stages of program implementation, P/P/As were satisfactorily and substantially implemented and accomplished, as reflected in this Annual Report.

 

BUSINESS-FRIENDLY AND COMPETITIVE LGUs

 

  1. Streamlining of Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS)

The program on Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS) was given priority for CY 2013 to ensure the efficiency of the provision of basic services delivery in the local government units, among other government institutions, anchored on the tenets of transparency and accountability.

With the objective of eradicating red tape practices in the bureaucracy thereby fast tracking the various procedures and processes in government transactions, LGUs in Region IX have streamlined their respective business licensing systems and procedures in accordance with the national service standards consistent with R.A. 9485 otherwise known as the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007.
Since its implementation in 2010, a total of 35 target and non-target LGUs in tourism sites have adapted BPLS reforms, as follows:

  • CY 2010  to 2012   -           18 LGUs
  • CY 2013                 -           17 LGUs

TOTAL                   -           35 LGUs
