San Simon e-Governance impresses Zambales-Olangapo

Even top caliber cities and municipalities include San Simon, a third class municipality, on the top of their shortlist as a model of e-governance.  

The Municipality of San Simon is exceptionally proud of these special entitlements extended by other LGUs and government agencies as it demonstrated and popularized replicable best practices on its computerization program once more to the 13 towns and one (1) city of the province of Zambales or the Business Licensing Officers of Olangapo and Zambales Association (BLOOZA) in a benchmarking mission last September 5, 2014.


     Mayor Leonora C. Wong as the “think tank” of innovation, together with IT Supervisor Aljie Tayag, took the spotlight on imparting and sharing with them the exemplary performance and outstanding efforts, accomplishments and further innovation of the FEAST (Fast, Effective, Accountable, Simple, and Transparent) program particularly the Documented Streamlining Program in the Issuance of Business Permit.

   Amazed by its technological reforms and modernization initiatives, what really impressed the BLOOZA delegates is the humble background of the town as a third class municipality to be at par or even to surpass the LGU “big names” nationwide magnifying the numerous awards, citations and accolades it has earned to be branded as a model of e-governance. 


Sandra Dee S. Elcanir, President-BLOOZA / BPLO-Olongapo, commended and appreciated San Simon for its innovation best practices in which she said that other low-income municipalities in Zambales will surely replicate in their localities.


     She also emphasized that these ideal practices will be translated to the over-all satisfaction of taxpayers and increased revenue to serve more programs and projects to the people.
     PD Leonila T. Baluyut of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)- Zambales was impressed by the excellent leadership of Mayor Wong for the IT best practices of the Municipality. 

     “I’m very much impressed in the way all these things were put in place, the systems, all the innovations, the implementations and even the monitoring and the continuous leveling up of the LGU. I’m impressed with all the awards na na-achieved, commendable talaga and remarkable ang mga improvements. Sa akin yung top to bottom approach ni Mayor Wong is very effective kasi these innovations came from the top management so talagang will power. Aside from that, it was this mindset to be productive, to be always on the toes. Na match yon more than our expectations,” Director Baluyut said. 

     With this remarkable feat, Mayor Wong said that more than these badges of honor is the pursuit for efficiency and good governance all in the name of public service.
