Zamboanga: DILG launches the 2023 Seal of Good Local Governance for Barangay


The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), through City Director Ginagene Vano Uy, met with the heads of the City Government, Thursday, June 15, 2023 at the City Hall Conference Room to discuss the mechanics of the Seal of Good Local Governance for Barangays or SGLGB.

The Seal of Good Local Governance for Barangay (SGLGB) is a progressive performance assessment and recognition system that aims to give distinction to barangays with remarkable performance across various governance areas. It also intends to encourage barangays to continuously progress in delivering efficient, equitable and quality public services. It puts primacy to integrity and good performance as pillars of meaningful local autonomy.

The 2023 SGLGB roll-out covers the assessment and profiling of Barangays for the year 2022. Aside from the SGLGB’s parameters, processes and timelines, the rollout will also look into the feasibility of the new SGLGB implementation arrangement to be led by the local governments and engagement of other partner-stakeholders. This implementation scheme is in consideration of Section 32 of the Local Government Code which mandates the cities and municipalities to exercise general supervision over their respective barangays.

The City Government together with DILG shall form assessment teams anchored on the principle of ONE AUDIT that aims to look into the functionality of Barangay Development Council, Barangay Council for the Protection of Children, Barangay Peace and Order Committee, the Barangay Violence Against Women’s Desk, among others.

The 2023 SGLGB assessment is scheduled to be completed by July 31, 2023.
