This is a tool for assessing barangay performance in terms of service delivery and compliance to the provisions of the 1991 Local Government Code and other issuances.  Through the system, city and municipal governments, which exercise supervision over their component barangays and the barangays themselves, will be provided with a clear picture of the performance of barangays, particularly in the areas of Administration, Social Services, Economic Development and Environmental Management.

Under BGPMS, barangays are expected to come up with their State of Barangay Governance Report or SGBR whose content serves as basis for the city and municipal governments and the DILG in coming up with the necessary interventions and/or assistance to them.  The System was field-tested in 4,798 barangays in the middle of 2011.

Office Commitments:

  • Provide all barangays with technical assistance
    • in preparation of SGBRs and Analysis Report, Barangay Development Plans based on BGPMS results
    • to improve barangay performance rating

The Lupong Tagapamayapa is an administrative body created by law to operationalize the barangay justice system which is better known as the Katarungang Pambarangay. It is not in legal contemplation a court (DOJ Opinions No. 95, s. 1981 and No. 43, s. 1982). The Lupon or its Chairman and the Pangkat do not try cases and decide cases which are the essence of the jurisdiction vested upon a court of law (Gonzales v. Court of Appeals, 151 SCRA 287, 291-292 [1987]).

Katarungan Pambarangay (KP) is the Philippine response to the continuing global search for indigenous mediation structures capable of resolving disputes within a community, and beyond the formal courts of justice. The principal feature of KP is the Lupong Tagapamayapa. For years of conflict resolution of experiences, there is the view that successes have been largely attributed to the commitment and dedication of Lupon members in the performance of their duties and responsibilities. Cognizant to the significant contributions of the Lupons in the furtherance of the KP objective through the years, the DILG launched the Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentives Awards, both as a function of public policy and as a tribute to outstanding Lupon performance.

The Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentives Awards (LTIA) was established pursuant to Section 406 (b) of the LGC of 1991 which mandates the DILG to grant economic and other incentives to Lupong Tagapamayapa (LT) for their outstanding contributions to attain the objectives of the Katarungang Pambarangay.

It was established in 1997 as a means to institutionalize a system of granting economic benefits and other incentives to the Lupong Tagapamayapa that demonstrates exemplary performance in settling disputes at the grassroots level. The performance and accomplishments of the lupons were evaluated by committees organized at the regional, provincial and municipal levels on the basis of a) efficiency of operations; b) effectiveness in securing the katarungang pambarangay objectives and c) creativity and resourcefulness of mediators.

Role of DILG:

  1. To spearhead the organization of different Award Committees in different levels.
  2. Regional Director as the Chairman in the Regional Awards Committee
  3. DILG Offices in the Provincial, HUC’s, CC’s and Municipal levels provides technical and secretariat services to the committees; and
  4. Provide economic and other incentives/awards to the declared winners

It is a ground breaking initiative of the Local Government Academy (LGA) in its commitment to come up with harmonized and holistic capacity development delivery mechanism for the local government units.

The NEO consisting of three parts, is intended to capacitate LGUs in formulating a term based development roadmap that is anchored on the national agenda.

Part I. General Orientation Program

Track 1: Orientation Program for the new set of Local Officials to help them understand the LGU State of Local Governance, their tasks and responsibilities, critical steps for the 1st 100 days in office and assist them in crafting an ELA.

Track 2:  Special Orientation for local chief executives that will be designed depending on the needs of LCEs as identified by the leagues of local governments


Part II. Provincial Orientation and Alliance Building

The Provincial Government supported by the DILG, thru its provincial offices, will conduct this part of the NEO program to help provincial governments define their strategic direction. Together with the component cities and municipalities, the provincial governments are expected to formulate the development agenda and investment priorities thru the ELA. The alliance building workshops shall ensure the vertical and horizontal integration of local government plans.


Part III. Special Topics on Core LGU Operations and Sectoral Concerns

After going thru the orientation program, local officials may immediately avail of training programs on various local governance areas. Briefing on special topics will focus on Governance, Administration, Social Services, Economic Development and Environmental Management. An inventory of training programs for LGUs offered by national government agencies, local resource institutions and other training institutes will be made available thru the Local Governance Resource Centers (LGRCs).
