Dads OK Oro’s Devolution Transition Plan for 2022-2024
COMPLYING with Executive Order No. 138 of President Rodrigo Duterte, the local government of Cagayan de Oro has come up with its Devolution Transition Plan (DTP) for 2022 to 2024, which was approved by the City Council during its regular session Monday, December 6, presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy.
The EO instructs all local government units to prepare their DTPs to guide the transition in their full assumption of devolved roles and responsibilities.
The devolution plan covers the phasing of full assumption of devolved functions, services and facilities; capacity development (CapDev) agenda and proposed changes to organizational structure and staffing pattern (OSSP).
It also includes local revenue forecast and resource mobilization strategy and performance targets for devolved functions and services.
It may be recalled that in response to the presidential order, Mayor Oscar Moreno created a study group composed of the city budget officer, City Planning and Development Coordinator, City Legal Officer, City Accountant, City Treasurer, and heads of the Human Resource Management Office, City Information Officer, CSWDD and Office for Community Affairs.
He also created the Committee on Devolution, comprised of concerned departments involved in the full devolution transition.
The plan is in conformance to the guidelines prescribed under the Department of Budget and Management (DBM)- Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) No. 2021-1 dated August 11, 2021, said Mayor Moreno in his endorsement to the City Council.
