QC Council is 2015 Most Outstanding Sangguniang Panlungsod for NCR


The 19th Quezon City Council bested 16 other local government units (LGUs) in the National Capital Region (NCR) as it once again emerged as the most outstanding Sangguniang Panlungsod upon winning the 2015 Local Legislative Award at the regional level.

This is the second victory in a row for QC Council, having bagged the award last 2012.

The much-coveted Local Legislative Award was launched in 2006 by the Philippine Councilors’ League (PCL) in partnership with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). The award recognizes the exemplary performance of sanggunians, particularly of cities and municipalities, for legislating measures that help build the foundation of meaningful local administration and development.

The award is granted every term of local elective officials, i.e. every three years, and the assessment for this year’s award covers the period July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2015. The award criteria include (1) effectiveness of the legislative agenda, (2) availability of legislative documents, (3) efficiency of performance of the sanggunian (4) quality of office set-up and staff complement (5) legislative citations and awards and (6) capacity development for legislators and staff.

The award has three categories: provincial level, regional level and national level.

The QC Council was assessed along with other LGUs in NCR by the Regional Awards Committee, composed of the evaluators from the DILG as chairperson, Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).

The City Council vows to remain committed to good governance as it enacts legislations that are timely, responsive to the needs of the people and uphold transparency, accountability and stakeholders’ participation.
