Biliran DEO has been scrutinized according to the availability of information in the different areas of processes including the district’s management process, infrastructure development process from planning and design, construction, maintenance, and support processes to financial management, physical resources management, human resources management, information management, and procurement management.
According to DE Adongay, through assessment has led to clearer understanding of what is needed to achieve development goal and has eliminated the “hit and miss” approach often present in government development goal setting,” said DE Adongay.
“These best assessment performance practices when benchmarked properly can yield excellent result which is a less waste in human resources and funding. This has some implications to infrastructure/ service delivery – resources are often wasted in the improper delivery of services to the people.” DE Adongay added.
During the exit meeting, DE Adongay stressed that Management Audit is one of the current practices in assessing performance of the office.
“Through proper performance practices, we are able to pinpoint the best delivery services by the government and reduce or eliminate wastage often found in the delivery of services where no assessment has been undertaken,” DE Adongay said.
