In partnership with the Sarangani Vice Governor’s Office (VGO), the RESOURCEGov 2 Project Team, composed of Project Officer Mr. Jan Solomon B. Edrozo and Project Documenter Ms. Lorielyn P. Patoc, oriented the barangay captains and their staff about the Legislative Information Tracking System (LITS) during the Liga ng mga Barangay Meeting on September 19, 2019 at Liga ng Barangay Hall, DILG Office, Glan, Sarangani Province. There were 25 participants (Male 20, Female 5) who were present during the LITS orientation. The initiative to roll out the system to the barangays other than Malapatan and Maasim is of the Sarangani VGOs who are also developing local experts for the system. The VGO intends to start rolling out the LITS to the BLGUs in 2020.
Before the orientation, the BGO and the project team conducted a courtesy visit to the Glan Mun. Mayor Hon. Vivien Yap, M.D. to inform her of the activity and intention of the VGO. Mr. Edrozo presented a short overview of the project particularly the LITS to inform the barangay chief executives of the benefits of adopting the system. Ms. Patoc enforced the presentation by saying that the system is given out for free and that their respective secretaries will be oriented on how to use the LITS. After the orientation, the barangay secretaries presented their laptops to be installed with the system. However, only one out of 10 units was installed with LITS on the same day. As agreed with the Vice Governor’s staff, the next installation will be done on the Liga ng mga Barangay Meeting on November 2019.
