Laoag City - Two outstanding DILG provincial offices earned the accolades of DILG Region I as they were recognized during the 1st Quarter Regional Management Committee (RMC) Meeting held at the Plaza del Norte Hotel and Convention Center recently.
DILG Regional Director James Fadrilan identified the awardees for 2016 as DILG La Union and DILG Pangasinan.
DILG – La Union received the distinction as the Most Compliant Provincial Office for its exemplary performance in the implementation of the different PPAs of the department and timely submission of required reports and financial and administrative requirements. On the other hand, DILG-Pangasinan was declared as the Most Outstanding Provincial Office on Locally-Funded Project implementation for the speedy compliance with project requirements and prompt submission reports.
Fadrilan said the award system acknowledges the effort of the provincial offices which contributed to the notable accomplishments of DILG R1, as he further emphasized the importance of team synergy.
“I congratulate you all for all a job well done! The Provincial Offices are the forefront program implementers of the Department, hence the DILG R1 cannot accomplish much without the Provincial and Field Officers (FOs). But let us all be reminded and I would like to emphasize that in team synergy, the product of the whole is more than the product of each individual,” he stated.
“We are not a team because we work together. We are a team because we respect, trust and care for each other,” he added.
He also expressed hope that each provincial office regardless of their ranks in the award system will continue to do what is expected of them.
The awards had three (3) categories: 1) compliance awards on PPA implementation; 2) compliance awards on financial awards and administrative requirements; and 3) special awards on LFP Implementation.
