|Reference No. (2020-06-16)
|FOR :||All Honorable Mayors
|FROM :||The LCP Executive Director
|RE :||Reiteration of the New and Earlier Deadline for the Submission of Complete Documentary Requirements for the Local Government Support Fund – Assistance to Cities (LGSF-AC)
|DATE:||23 June 2020|
The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) requested the assistance of the League in ensuring that all cities will be able to utilize their respective allocation contained in Local Budget Circular No. 123 dated 12 February 2020 which appropriates an amount of Php 2,489,800,000 to enhance the existing or develop new public open spaces in publicly owned lands to make cities sustainable, livable and resilient.
As stated in the Circular, the FY 2020 LGSF-AC funds will only be released to cities upon submission of complete and compliant documentary requirements on or before 31 August 2020. However, a recent communication from the Department of Budget and Management stated that the new deadline for the submission of complete requirements had been moved to 30 June 2020 to synchronize all submissions for the Local Government Support Fund and to ensure that LGUs will have ample time to implement the project within 2020.
According to DBM, the new deadline has been communicated to LGUs, and this advisory is a reiteration of that communication. Kindly complete the necessary documentary requirements contained in LBC 123 and submit them to the DBM Office of the Secretary – Technical Review Unit on or before 30 June 2020.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Atty. Shereen Gail Yu-Pamintuan
LCP Executive Director
