The performance and accomplishments of the lupons are evaluated by committees organized at the national, regional, provincial, city and municipal levels on the basis of a) Efficiency in Operations; b) Effectiveness in Securing the Settlement of Interpersonal Dispute Objective of the Katarungang Pambarangay; c) Creativity and Resourcefulness of the Lupong Tagapamayapa; d) Area or Facility for KP Activities; and e) Financial or Non-financial Support.
By and large, the activity ends successfully. Through her memorandum, DILG-XIII Regional Director Lilibeth A. Famacion, CESO III congratulates all the winners and enjoins them to be prepared in the national assessment.
