Executive assistant Samuel Montoyo Sr. said he intends to recommend to the mayor and the city administrator that commendation be given to barangays that have good performance in the Business One-Stop-Shop (BOSS).
He cited, for example, barangays 11 and Alangilan that have punctual representatives and consistent attendance in the BOSS set up at the Bacolod Government Center.
Montoyo said the participation of the barangays in the BOSS was 100 percent, as of Jan. 9, but there are those who have a problem on absences and tardiness, and that defeats the purpose of the BOSS.
He said they will report their performance to the Department of Interior and Local Government, Department of Trade and Industry, the Anti-Red Tape Act Authority, and the Office of the President.
Montoyo said they will also require barangay officials to attend a seminar on their roles under Republic Act 11032, or the Ease of Doing Business Act, before the BOSS starts next year.
RA 11032 states that the barangay is part and component of the program of Ease of Doing Business. So he presumes that they are required to participate in the BOSS until February 28, he said.
However, he will seek clarification on the matter from the DTI, DILG, Civil Service Commission, and ARTA national since they have not yet received a copy of the implementing rules, Montoyo said.*
