Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address?: The Assistance to Disadvantaged Municipalities (ADM) will contribute to addressing the policy and governance gaps in the implementation of local programs and projects by harmonizing the ADM processes with existing systems of the local government to strengthen these existing systems: The governance focuses on building the partnership of the LGUs with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and People’s Organizations (POs) in the selection and monitoring of infrastructure projects through the Local Development Councils (LDCs). The policy gaps refers to the fiscal and infrastructure imbalances in local service delivery. - Fiscal Gap – refers to the insufficiency of the municipal governments’ revenues to cover basic infrastructure requirements. This is based on the finding that compared to the other levels of local governments such as the barangay, province and city, the municipal government is the most disadvantaged in terms of Internal Revenue Allotment. - Infrastructure Gap – refers to the difference between the required basic infrastructure to reduce poverty and promote economic growth and the current stock of infrastructure.; What is the commitment?: The program shall aim to contribute to the building of empowered, responsible and responsive LGUs. It shall serve as a tool to assist all municipalities to access basic facilities by strengthening the LDCs to become more able partners in national development and strengthening of LGU abilities to deliver basic services. It shall provide a revitalized thrust to government's efforts to contribute to the realization of a responsive national priorities and budget.; How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? : The program shall follow a five-year governance roadmap during which milestones each year are set to serve as the basis of pre-conditions to the funding of and implementing locally funded projects. Target Year MILESTONES Year 1 Fully Functionalized Local Development Council Year 2 Enhanced Quality of Local Development Investment Program Year 3 Institutionalization of Full Service Delivery System Year 4 Strengthened Vertical Linkage of Local Plans Year 5 Improved Municipality Asset Management and Resource Mobilization Capacity ; Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?: The ADM program implementation will hopefully be able to advance OGP values especially to promote transparent, accountable, participatory local governance, ensuring that local development councils, with the participation of non-government/civil society organizations, are fully functional and independent third party monitoring and evaluation are conducted. It also leverages technology to strengthen governance with the establishment of the ADM Portal.; Additional information: As provided by Republic Act 10924, the budget for this program is P19.43-billion for FY 2017 and FY 2018. This commitment is in line with the Philippine Development Plan 2017 – 2022 Chapter 5 on Ensuring People-Centered, Clean, and Efficient Governance.
