LGU Claver inks partnership with TMC

CLAVER, SURIGAO DEL NORTE - The local government of Claver headed by Mayor Georgia Gokiangkee forged a partnership with Taganito Mining Corporation (TMC) for the implementation of Community-based Monitoring System (CBMS) for the year 2021.

The partnership includes the turnover by TMC of items such as tablets, computers, power banks, and PPEs/uniforms, among others.

The items will be used by the enumerators, encoders and field editors identified by the Municipal Planning and Development Office (MPDO) during the barangay surveys. The MPDO is the lead office for the implementation and management of the CBMS in the municipality.

Mayor Gokiangkee thanked the LGU’s partner in producing reliable data for future use.

“This undertaking is a significant contribution to the community, especially the marginalized, and we are grateful to TMC for helping us accomplish this,” the Mayor expressed.

Based on the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) - CBMS Portal, the CBMS is an “organized process of data collection and processing at the local level and integration of data in local planning, program implementation and impact monitoring.”

Meanwhile, MPDC Eva B. Casido, ENP shared that the CBMS is expected to kick-off by March 2021 as soon as the software is available for the LGUs to use.

According to Casido, the CBMS data will be used for the preparation of socioeconomic profiles and development plans in Claver.

“It seeks to address the existing data gaps at the local level for diagnosing the extent of poverty at the local level in determining the causes of poverty, formulating appropriate policies and programs, identifying eligible beneficiaries and assessing impact of policies and programs,” Casido added.
