Regional Field Coordinator Aldie Mae A. Andoy of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) monitors the Data Utilization Feedback Report of Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer Gladys Piodo of Basilisa, Province of Dinagat Islands together with appointed Listahanan Focal Person Lorry Ensoy on October 24, 2016.

“We decided to appoint a focal person for Listahanan in order to ensure monitoring of utilization. In this way, deserving people will benefit the program and services from the LGU.  Also, it is easy for us to track if the beneficiary is a member of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. Other than that, I instruct my staff to prioritize the Listahanan identified poor households since it is our mandate to help the poor in every situation,” said Piodo.20161024_083511

Recently, staff from NHTU visited all the municipalities in the Province of Dinagat Islands to monitor how the LGUs use the Listahanan Database by collecting the Data Utilization Feedback Reports as well encouraging them to submit letter of intent to access statistics from the updated Database since the review of new guidelines for Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is ongoing due to Data Privacy Act. ###(ABEGAIL R.
