OLONGAPO’S COMPREHENSIVE BARANGAY PROFILE IS FIRST IN THE PHILIPPINES
The seventeen (17) barangay chairmen, assisted by Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) City Director Eliseo de Guzman, handed the hard bound copies of the CBP to Mayor Gordon during the flag raising ceremony of city officials and employees on June 22, 2009 at Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.
“Ang CBP ang magsisilbing bibliya ng bawat barangay. This will be the primary source of information about the barangay community and to the potential entrepreneurs as a basis for their major decisions for gainful business opportunity,’’ said Mayor Gordon.
DILG City Dir. de Guzman stressed that Olongapo is pioneering in the CBP implementation in the country. “Ang Comprehensive Barangay Profile (CBP) ng Olongapo ay ang kauna-unahan sa Pilipinas kaya maipag-mamalaki natin ito. Ang mga barangay ng Olongapo lamang ang naka-kompleto na ngayon ng CBP sa bansa kaya masasabi ko rin na dumaan ito sa ‘butas ng karayom bago natapos.’’’
He also pointed-out the importance of CBP in providing factual basis for planning and decision making in the delivery of public service of the barangay. It provides the general characteristics, demography, social, cultural and economic dimensions, its potentials as well as its weaknesses.
Meanwhile, Olongapo City Public Library Administrator Elizabeth Daduya also received copies of the CBP. ‘’Magagamit ang CBP ng mga kababayan natin na nais malaman ang history ng kanilang barangay, magtungo lamang sila sa Public Library,’’ said Daduya.
DILG-Olongapo City launched and initiated the project to develop a comprehensive profile of all the seventeen (17) barangays of the city through the search for the best and most comprehensive barangay profile, winners of the search are guaranteed cash incentives from the city government and trophies/plaques of recognition from the DILG.
