In its overall performance last year, the province got a very high rating.
This was revealed during the Executive-Legislative Agenda Assessment and Monitoring Seminar-Workshop held recently at Davao City attended by the provincial government officials and department heads of the local government unit of this province.
The activity was aimed at evaluating the performance of the provincial government in 2010 and to identify what and how it has achieved its goals. This will also serve as basis for future plan of action for the next years to better serve the public.
The rating was the result of the State of Local Governance Performance Report (SLGR) by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) for the province using the Local Governance Performance Management System (LGPMS).
The system covers five performance areas and 17 service areas. Performance areas are Governance, Administration, Social Services, Economic Development and Environmental Management.
On the other hand, service areas are composed of Local Legislation, Development Planning, Revenue Generation, Resource Allocation and Utilization, Human Resource Management and Development, Support to Health Services, Support to Education Services, Support to Housing and Basic Facilities; Peace, Security and Disaster Risk Management, Support to Fishery Services, Entrepreneurship, Business and Industry Promotion, Forest Ecosystem Management, Coastal Marine Ecosystems Management, Urban Ecosystems Management, Participation, Transparency, and Financial Accountability.
