 Days before Sec. Jesse Robredo died on a plane crash last Aug. 18, 2012, the Department of Interior & Local Government released the list of Top LGUs who performed well and met the parameters set by the agency on LGPMS State of Performance for CY 2011.

 LGPMS, or the Local Government Performance Management System, the State of Performance Index  is a system designed by DILG to measure the performance of each LGU in areas of Good Planning, Sound Fiscal Management, Transparency, Accountability, Valuing of Performance Information and Good Housekeeping, in general.  It also integrates Health & Local Tourism Management.

 In a report transmitted to Angono, Rizal Mayor Gerry V. Calderon by Ms. Linda S. Estipular, Angono Municipal Local Government Operations Officer, The Local Government Unit of Angono tops the Municipal Ranking by Province with a rating of 4.81 points, with 5 being the highest  (see table below).

 Highlighted in this report is the LGU’s performance in four (4) areas of governance: (1) Administrative Governance, (2) Social Governance, (3) Economic Governance, and (4) Environmental Governance.   A special report is included to determine how the fundamentals of good governance such as Participation, Transparency, and Financial Accountability are valued in the LGU.  It is to note that the LGU’s performance was assessed based on the responses of the LGU’s Team to the questions provided into the LGPMS database.   A Performance Scale is used to identify areas with excellent performance and areas for improvement. A perfect scale of 5 denotes excellent performance while performance scales of 1-4 indicate areas for improvement.  Although scales of 3 and 4 are relatively high, there are areas which can still be improved on.  All these are explained in detail as you read the entire report at http://www.blgs.gov.ph/lgpmsv2/appshome/report/rpt-eSLGPR-public.php?frmIdLgu=821&frmIdPerfArea=2&frmIdDcfCode=8

Meanwhile, the Province of Rizal ranked 2nd from among the five (5) provinces in CALABARZON Region.
