|DILG to conduct Regional Orientation on Bottom-Up-Budgetting|
On February 7, 2013, all technical field personnel of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) of regions 10 and 13 will undergo an orientation workshop on the Bottom-Up-Budgeting (BUB) and Planning process in Pearlmont Hotel, Cagayan de Oro City.
BUB is an approach that will be used by concerned agencies for implementation of FY 2014 budget preparation, taking into consideration the development needs of poor cities/municipalities as identified in their respective local poverty reduction action plans.
In line with the President’s “Social Contract with the Filipino People” calling for, among others, transparent, accountable and participatory governance, this program was created under Executive Order No. 43, series of 2011 by the Human Development and Poverty Reduction Cluster (HDPRC), the Good Governance and Anti-Corruption Cluster (GGAC) and the Economic Development Cluster, together with the DILG, Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC).
The DILG is given the responsibility to implement the BUB Program, being the chair of the Regional Poverty Reduction Action team (RPRAT). Thus, there is a need to mobilize its field officers in order for the Department to successfully implement the BUB process and to effectively monitor the implementation of the BUB projects.
The DILG field personnel will be oriented on their roles in the BUB implementation, in their coordination efforts with the different players and stakeholders pursuant to the DBM-DILG-DSWD-NAPC Joint Memorandum Circular No. 3 series of 2012, and in the provision of technical assistance to LGUs for the compliance of requirements for BUB projects. Working together with DILG are the other members of the RPRAT: DBM as co-chair, DSWD, Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Health (DOH), Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Tourism (DOT), National Electrification Administration (NEA) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). ###
