Zamboanga City reaps DILG award
ZAMBOANGA CITY – The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has awarded the Zamboanga City government some P3 million in government subsidy from the Performance Challenge Fund as part of the incentive for the local government being a recipient of the Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping for 2014.
DILG Director Atty. Mohammad Taha Arakama handed the cheque to Mayor Beng Climaco. The PCF is an in incentive fund to high-impact capital investment projects in the Annual Investment Program (AIP) and sourced out from the 20% Local Development Fund.
It is being administered by the DILG in collaboration with the Department of Budget and Management to recognize good governance particularly in the adoption of “good housekeeping” along the governance areas development planning, sound financial management, transparency and accountability and valuing performance monitoring.
The award was given to Climaco because Zamboanga has passed the 2012 Seal of Good Housekeeping and the 2014 Good Financial Housekeeping. The subsidy will be used to fund modular-type projects in the 2015 AIP.
Climaco is well credited for her hard work and dedication to public service and also being supported by the locals for her many accomplishments as mayor of Zamboanga. Climaco is gunning for reelection in next year’s polls and is likely to run unopposed under President Aquino’s ruling Liberal Party. (Mindanao Examiner, with a report from Sheila Covarrubias)
