Bislig City – Mayor Librado C. Navarro successfully defended Bislig City’s achievements in compliance to its enrollment to the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA) at Makati City recently.

ISA is an independent body that helps various agencies and Local Government Units (LGU) in achieving a sound Performance Governance System. ISA also oversees the enrollee’s journey in planning and collaboration with other civic organizations; evaluate their development plan and performance without biases. The performance of an enrollee refers to their fulfillment of every stage of the Performance Governance System (PGS).

The PGS drives four stages such as: initiation, compliance, proficiency and institutionalization. Each of the stages has corresponding activity to be accomplished by the participating agency or local government unit. At the 1st stage or Initiation, the local government must formulate a clear view of its target pertaining to different subjects related to its growth – such as processes, employees and constituents by crafting a strong and attainable vision, mission and core values. The 2nd stage or Compliance will only be completed by cascading the PGS or informing and letting the employees participate in the accomplishment of the vision, as well as the establishment of the Office of Strategic Management (OSM) in order to facilitate the creation of a working committee that will ensure the sustainability of the PGS program.

The 3rd stage or Proficiency is the phase wherein the participation of the employees and the citizens in accomplishing the City’s vision is evident. The final stage or Institutionalization will show that the vision’s accomplishment became a way of life of all citizens.

Dubbed as “revalida”, the activity served as the final event of the first stage wherein public institutions’ breakthroughs will be assessed by ISA and a third party basing on Performance Governance System (PGS). With the newly crafted and officially adopted vision, mission, and core values, as well as the City’s efforts to tap other civic organizations, Bislig City has victoriously passed the Initiation stage.

Consequently, Mayor Librado C. Navarro scored a Plaque of Recognition for the City’s tireless pursuit of governance and long-term development in the service of the Philippines and the Filipinos. Jointly signed by Mr. Jesus P. Estanislao, Ph. D., President of Institute for Solidarity in Asia and Mr. John D. Sullivan, President of the Center for International Private Enterprise of Washington DC, United States of America, Mayor Navarro got the award last May 4, 2015 at Makati City, Philippines.

Summer is not just for fun, beach, tan and relaxation.

“Summer means job: earning and learning,” The Local Government of the City of Bislig through Mayor Librado C. Navarro said.

The government sees the need of students who wishes to finish their studies. Thus, this program aims to extend financial assistance for the educational expense of the SPES participants who will be enrolling for the next semester or school year.

The government wants the youth to understand that the parents are working diligently with a big responsibility. The LGU officials stressed that work is highly important that it requires patience and dedication. Students must know that it is not easy to earn money. With SPES, the youth are being taught of the value of hardwork, education and family.

 It has been noted that while the times are changing, the man’s culture and values gets less attention. Mayor Navarro wants to change the kind of perspective to strengthen the virtues of today’s Bislig Youth knowing that they can contribute to the city’s development.

The program started on the 14th of April and will end on the 14th of May. The 400 SPES participants have undergone seminars on City Development Plan, Career Development and Youth Values Enhancement. They also had an orientation for a ten-day survey for the Local Information of Bislig Survey System (LIBSS).

In their given time and effort, they will receive 200 pesos per day, sixty percent of which is from the Local Government Unit and forty percent is from DOLE that will be in a form of an educational voucher to pay the school fees of the participants.

SPES may just be an annual summer program but the government intends that the result will be for the benefit of the students’ educational attainment and for their respective families.
