The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region XIII conducted a series of coaching sessions entitled Review on the Full Disclosure Policy (FDP) and Orientation-Workshop on the Redesigned FDP Portal in five (5) batches for Agusan del Norte and Butuan City; Agusan del Sur; Surigao del Norte mainland; Dinagat Islands and Surigao del Norte Siargao; and Surigao del Sur on March 11-19, 2014.
The activity intended to assist the Local Government Units (LGUs) comply with the full disclosure provisions of laws such as Local Government Code (RA 7160, Section 352); the Government Procurement Reform Act (RA 9184); and the General Appropriations Act (RA 10352, Section 84) through the implementation of the Full Disclosure Policy of the DILG which allows the LGUs to upload the financial documents requiring disclosure as well as enables the public to view, download and print the financial documents of the LGUs.
During the activity, LGU FDP Focal Persons were reoriented on the FDP and taught how to utilize the redesigned FDP Portal, the host website for all the LGUs’ financial documents. Ultimately, it was the intent of the Department to promote to LGUs ownership of FDP compliance as part of their public accountability and transparency and that the activity is a way for them to appreciate more this constitutional responsibility to the public at large.
Anybody who wishes to peruse the financial documents of their local governments can access the FDP portal via http://fdpp.blgs.gov.ph (Don Manuelo O. Patrimonio, RIO-Designate, DILG XIII)
