DILG issues memo on 2016 accreditation of CSOs to the local special bodies

VIRAC, Catanduanes, July 29 (PIA) - The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) invites civil society organizations to be part of Local Special Bodies (LSB’s) that will help in local governance and development process of local governments.

DILG Catanduanes provincial director (OIC) Uldarico S. Razal Jr. said the initiave is in accordance with Memorandum Circular No. 2016-97 issued on July 19, 2016 for the 2016 Accreditation of Civil Society Organization’s (CSO’s).

Razal added that pursuant to Article 64 of the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of the Local Government Code, the Local Government Units (LGU’s), upon the assumption of the newly-elected Sanggunian must have accreditation of CSO’s for purposes of representation in LSB’s.

Although the IRR of the Local Government Code include the People’s Law Enforcement Boards (PLEBs) as one among the LSB’s, the provisions of the Code as to the manner of selecting representatives to the LSB’s do not find applicable to the PLEBs.

 As such, the circular does not apply to the PLEBs. Likewise, the Circular does not apply to the Pre-qualification, Bids and Awards Committees, now called Bids and Awards Committees established, considering that unlike the old PBAC, the composition of the BAC is now limited to local government personnel occupying plantilla positions in LGU’s .

Major activity and scheduled relative to accreditation and selection are indicated as follows: Inventory of CSO’s, (July 11-29, 2016); Call for Accreditation (August 1-12, 2016); Accreditation Proper (August 15-26, 2016); Selection of Representatives to the Local Special Bodies (LSB’s) (Sept. 5-16, 2016; Reconstitution and Convening of LSB’s (Sept. 19-23, 2016).
