Laguna bags silver in 1st National ADAC Performance Award

 

   The Province of Laguna was hailed as one of the Silver Awardees in the 1st National Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ADAC) Performance Award by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) for local government units (LGUs).

   The DILG recognized 241 LGUs, including the Laguna Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council (PADAC), for their exemplary efforts in complementing the national government’s campaign against illegal drugs in an awarding ceremony recently held at the Manila Hotel, Metro Manila.

   Based on the 2017 ADAC Performance Audit, Laguna garnered 86 Ideal (high functionality) points based on the functionality indicators used to measure the performance of the country’s provincial, city, and municipal ADACs.

   Laguna is among the 21 provinces that scored 85-99 Ideal points.  Only 21 LGUs garnered the perfect score of 100 and will receive P250,000 each as incentive.  All 241 awardees each got a plaque of recognition.

   The performance audit was based on the following criteria: organization of a local ADAC; implementation of ADAC plans and programs; fund allocation; support to ADACs in component LGUs; and conduct of quarterly meetings.

   Governor Ramil L. Hernandez received the award from DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año. Hernandez was accompanied by  Senior Board Member Ruth Mariano-Hernandez and Provincial Peace and Order chief Ms. Maricar A. Palacol.
