TACLOBAN CITY, Philippines  – Two provinces and five towns in Eastern Visayas have passed the 2014 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Among the awardees were the provinces of Biliran and Northern Samar, and the municipalities of Barugo, Carigara and Jaro, all in Leyte; Limasawa in Southern Leyte, and Gandara in Samar.

The winning local government units (LGUs) passed the three SGLG core indicators such as disaster preparedness, social protection and good financial housekeeping, and at least one essential indicator – business friendliness and competitiveness, peace and order, and environment.

The SGLG challenges LGUs to continue good governance practices and improve basic services, and compliance to the full disclosure policy and observance of the guidelines set by the Commission on Audit.

SGLG recipients will have the opportunity to avail themselves of the DILG performance challenge fund, which they could use for development projects.

Provincial winners will get an incentive fund amounting to P7 million each while the municipalities will receive P3 million each.
