October 15, 2020

The DILG Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) continues to support local government units (LGUs) in the region through the provision of training on Local Road Networks Development Plan (LRNDP).

“The capacity development interventions aim to enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of our provincial government employees on local road and public financial management, specifically updating the local road network development plan based on the required guidelines,” said Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP) Regional Coordinator Angeline Castro.

The LGUs are required to prepare their LRNDP in order to participate and access funds through the CMGP for Road Repair, Rehabilitation and Improvement Program of the national government through the DILG and Department of Budget and Management (DBM).

Castro explained that CMPGP is a performance-based downloading of fund program which will be sent directly to the provincial government upon completion of various requirements for the rehabilitation, improvement, and upgrading of provincial roads. ?

Moreover, she underscored that the LRNDP will serve as a development guide to support the sustainable growth of more specific local road network for the region.

It can be recalled that the Provincial Governments were mandated to develop their six-year (2017-2022) Provincial Governance Reform Roadmaps (PGRR) to achieve the governance reform targets on the seven key reform areas (KRA): Local Road Information Management, Local Road Network Development Planning, Local Road Construction and Maintenance, Local Road Asset Management, Internal Audit, Budgeting, Revenue Generation and Expenditure Management, Procurement.
