Caraga Anti-Poverty Team Coaches LPRAT for 2014 BuB Projects

By Florian Faith Jr. P. Bayawa

BUTUAN CITY, Mar. 14 (PIA) -- The Regional Poverty Reduction Action Team (RPRAT) together with the RPRAT implementing agencies has called upon the attention of Local Poverty Reduction Action Teams (LPRAT) of Local Government Units (LGUs) to revise, replace or modify proposed anti-poverty projects for F.Y. 2014 Bottom-up Budgeting (BuB) on March 7-8, 2013 at Dotties Place Hotel and Restaurant.

The provincial coaching was based on the result of RPRAT’s thorough review and scrutiny of the proposed anti-poverty projects submitted by the LPRATs. It was found out that there were some erroneous entries in the Project List and Project Briefs and some proposed projects are not within the menu of programs of the implementing agencies or cannot be proposed as BuB projects as expressly stipulated in the Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) No. 3. In addition, some LPRATs did not conform to the prescribed percentage of LGU counterparts.

DILG Caraga OIC-Asst. Regional Director Donald A. Seronay, in his message said that the Provincial Coaching will provide the venue for clarification, revision and replacement of ineligible proposed projects with the implementing agencies.

The first day of the provincial coaching was intended for selected LGUs of Agusan del Norte (including the city of Butuan), Surigao del Norte and Dinagat Islands, while the second day was for the selected LGUs of Agusan del Sur and Surigao del Sur.

Part of the provincial coaching was the reiteration of the salient features of JMC No. 3 discussed by DILG LGOO VI Jocelyn Jayoma, such as the correct entries of the Local Poverty Reduction Action Plan (LPRAP) and their corresponding Project Briefs, which must include the complete details of the eligible proposed projects.

The revised LPRAPs of the LPRATs will be submitted on or before March 12, 2013 to the DILG Regional Office in both hard and soft copies in ms word/exel and pdf formats for consolidation and integration to the respective plans of the implementing agencies. (DILG-13/PIA-Caraga)
