RESOURCEGov Project Team conducted a 2-day training to the Bureau of Local Government Finance (BLGF) and selected municipal treasurers of Region 12 on May 22-23, 2019 at the FB Hotel and Convention Center, Koronadal City. This is one of the networking and linkaging actions of the project with the government agencies to popularize the use of the systems in the region. The activity was participated by 43 (Male 16, Female 27) attendees including the BLGF 12, municipal treasurers, their staff and the project team. BLGF is the office to which the municipal treasurer’s offices submit their Statement of Receipts and Expenditures (SREs), the data to which the RESOURCEGov project will gauge the increase of the local revenue collection of its project areas.
BLGF Activing Regional Director Mr. Jeany Tedera expressed his gratitude to Mahintana, through the project, in rolling out such useful tools for the agency, as well as, the treasurer’s offices. He shared that it will not only help them analyze the trend of the collections but also help them forecast collections in the next 5 years. Project Documenter Ms. Lorielyn P. Patoc and Project Officer Mr. Kurt Jurgen Von D. Lumbao facilitated the training in behalf of Project Manager Mr. Roel Ian P. Blanker. The participants were able to generate ODK-based business mapping forms and generated Qlik graphs of their respective municipalities’ SREs which they presented at the end of the workshop. The BLGF and treasurers appreciated the systems and committed to utilize the tools for their own convenience. BLGF said that this is just the first leg of the many trainings and partnerships with Mahintana.
