LGPMS is a remarkably sophisticated system of performance management.
As to mayors who find themselves in the position of local chief executives, perhaps many of them do not realize this LGPMS constitutes the 'mayor's curriculum' - the subjects that they should have systematically schooled themselves in before they became mayors.
Robredo said that LGPMS topnotchers do not only earn the distinction of being among the best performing LGUs but they will also have a greater chance to be nominated to the Gawad Pamana ng Lahi, which is being conferred to LGUs that advances the tenets of good governance based on certain criteria, including the LGPMS.
For 2011, the following are the top performing provincial, city and municipal governments with their corresponding LGPMS rankings: Provinces Bohol (4.91); La Union (4.89); Cavite (4.88); Pangasinan (4.87); South Cotabato (4.864); Mountain Province (4.855); Albay (4.839); Bulacan (4.836); Rizal (4.832); and Ilocos Norte (4.828).
Robredo involved civil society groups in validating the LGPMS
, an online self-assessment tool that enables provincial, city and town governments to determine their capabilities and limitations in the delivery of basic services, a Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) report said.
