The provincial government of Surigao Del Norte, located at the northernmost part of Mindanao island, has institutionalised the use of the Local Government Performance Management System (LGPMS), a web-based e-scorecard tool that is used to determine the level of performance and development of local government units.


The LGPMS is managed by the Department of Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) Bureau of Local Government Supervision. It is a web-based system that has the ability to produce information on the state of local governance performance, and the state of local development, using governance and development indicators.


Mary Jane V. Catulay of DILG Surigao del Norte presented the LGPMS results for CY 2012 which highlighted the province’s performance indicators with excellent results. She also identified several weak points, and gave emphasis on drafting measures to enhance its performance.


Based on the report, the province of Surigao del Norte had a slight decrease in performance which Catulay attributed to the changes in administration.


The province regained its strength and got an overall performance rating of 4.66 in CY 2011. The performance even ascended more for CY 2012 at 4.71.


With LGPMS, the provincial government of Surigao del Norte can continuously monitor its performance in the delivery of services to its constituents and improve efforts in the pursuit of excellence in local governance.
