1) What did I learn? What was new to me? Was there something that changed my views and why? Focus on and analyze the themes important to you.
Based on RA 7160 otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 199, I have learned that the Local Government Units (LGUs) are mandated to prepare only two comprehensive plans: the CLUP and the CDP. And yet, the LGU were required by other agencies, like NGAs, to prepare various plans which causes a lot of confusion on its part and some were not complied due to various aspects and components to be considered. This maybe because NGAs failed to consult first the LGUs if this plan can be carried out, does the LGU have a budget for this, is this applicable, this should be the priority of the LGU for its inhabitants. The process therefore should be changed. LGU has its autonomy governing over its territory, the other agencies, like NGA, therefore, must respect LGUs power over its inhabitants. The role of the NGA must only be a consultative body. The LGU must then continue to proposed or present priority or special programs and projects to the NGAs which is for the development of its inhabitants as a whole. The NGAs then shall allocate budget, aside from the IRA of the LGU, for those special programs/project.

At first, my perception to some LGUs who do not have yet its CLUP and have not yet done preparing its CLUP is that they are incompetent and not law abiding citizen considering that it is mandated and required by Law. But as we go further, I have learned that there are a lot of things and aspects to be considered in the preparation of the CLUP. Each steps of preparation is a tedious process because it a long-term plan which will be the basis of the LGU in the implementation for its development programs.

Planning is imperative for the LGU in order to carry out its development programs effectively and efficiently and to…...

Public Fiscal Administration

...Public Fiscal Administration fiscal administration generally refers to the process/es involved in the revenue generation, allocation, and expenditures of the government. Public finance belongs to the branch of economics but that was during the earlier times. With the emergence of the field of public administration, much interest has been directed towards fiscal administration. Again, this subfield of public administration covers a wide range of issues and topics affecting government operations like taxation, public expenditures and borrowing, resource allocation, revenue administration, auditing and intergovernmental relations. As Briones (1996) puts it, “public fiscal administration embraces the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of policies and decisions on taxation and revenue administration; resource allocation, budgeting, and public expenditure; public borrowing and debt management; and accounting and auditing.” Through the years, many researches were devoted on these topics and issues; the government has also introduced reforms like reforms in tax administration, value added tax (VAT), expanded value added tax (E-VAT), procurement reforms, the medium-term expenditure framework (MTEF), accounting reforms, re-engineering the bureaucracy program (REBP), transforming local finance, and many others. Fiscal policy refers to the "measures employed by governments to stabilize the economy, specifically by manipulating the levels and allocations of taxes and......

Public Administration

...Name Subject Date Public Administration Public administration is to implement law. In the American system, authority flows from the people to those they vote to govern them. While a legislature passes a law and an executive signs it, the law does not implement itself. That is the task the legislature delegates to the administrator, and it is this chain of authority, flowing from the people through elected institutions to the public administrator, that makes public administration distinctively public. Faithful execution of these laws is the highest calling of public administrators and the core of administrative accountability. The Nature of Knowledge in Public Administration Public administration refers to two distinguishable but intimately related activities: (1) a professional practice (profession, occupation, field of activity), and (2) an academic field which seeks to understand, extend, criticize, and improve that professional practice as well as to train individuals for that practice. The simple meaning of the term is quite direct: it refers on the one hand to the administration or management of matters which have mainly to do with the society, polity, and its subparts which are not fundamentally private, familial, commercial, or characteristic, and on the other hand to the well-organized study of such matters. In this simplest meaning, public administration has to do with supervision the realm of governmental and other public activities. This......

Public Fiscal Administration

...HISTORY OF FISCAL ADMINISTRATION AND THE THEORY AND PURPOSE OF TAXATION Introduction Fiscal Administration is not difficult to define. In simple terms, fiscal administration is the branch of economics that deals with the revenues and expenditures and their impact on the economy. It is the manner of collecting something from the constituents and spending it also for the constituents. And the exact definition according to http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-fiscal-administration.htm, fiscal administration is the act of managing incoming and outgoing monetary transactions and budgets for governments, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other public service entities. Constituents charge leaders, whether governmental or organizational, with establishing fiscal policy as part of their duties in relation to responsible fiscal administration. Fiscal policies are tools for the development of fiscal planning budgets, based on the receipt of anticipated funding. As fund disbursement in the form of payroll, purchases, or other expenses occur, management reports appropriate accounting information back to organizational leaders. Historical data, future revenue projections, and current budget demands determine needed adjustments. The entire process forms the basis for future fiscal administration decision making. Leaders of government, nonprofits, and other public service entities have a fiduciary responsibility to those who put them in office,......

...farmers. Vermicomposting was chosen because its successful use would contribute to the ultimate goal of a sustainable organic agricultural farming. The practice of vermicomposting supports Republic Act No. 10068 otherwise known as the Philippine Organic Agriculture Act of 2010, a landmark legislation to promote, propagate, develop further and implement the practice of organic agriculture in the Philippines that will cumulatively condition and enrich the fertility of the soil, increase farm productivity, reduce pollution and destruction of the environment, prevent the depletion of natural resources, further protect the health of farmers, consumers, and the general public, and save on imported farm inputs.1 It likewise supports the National Organic Agriculture Program (NOAP) of the government which envisions the organic agriculture sector contributing to the country s over-all agriculture growth and development, in terms of sustainability, competitiveness and food security, where at least five (5) percent of Philippine agricultural farm areas practice organic farming; and where consumers both national and international increasingly support Philippine organic food products by 2016. The NOAP aims to promote organic agriculture in the Philippines towards a competitive and sustainable organic industry that contributes to better farm incomes and sustainable livelihood; improved health; environmental protection; disaster risk reduction and resilience to climate change and social......

Fiscal Administration in Law Enforcement

...Research Paper Albert Amos Sr. Fiscal Administration in Law Enforcement LEA432 Prof. Zachary Steward May 4, 2014 One of the most expensive services that local governments provide is police service. As is the case in many local government agencies today, police departments are being asked to provide more services than ever before with less resources available to fund these new initiatives. As it becomes apparent that there is not enough money available to fund necessary programs, and the funding is not forthcoming, local governments have been forced to reexamine themselves to find new ways to provide the essential services that they are obligated to provide. In the age of budget cuts that we live in today, performance management is being used more and more to help organizations effectively meet their objectives in an economically responsible manner. 1.) The impact of a recession on a law enforcement agency’s ability to plan a budget Parlow, Matthew J., "The Great Recession and Its Implications for Community Policing" (2012). Faculty Publications. Paper 607. http://scholarship.law.marquette.edu/facpub/607 When the economy was flourishing, local governments were able to pay for services to any jurisdiction. The Great Recession has forced localities to think critically about whether they can sustain these practices given budget cuts. Sweeping reductions put law enforcement on pace for its first job decline in 25 years. The effects of the economic downturn on law...

...------------------------------------------------- Fiscal policy of the Philippines From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Fiscal policy refers to the "measures employed by governments to stabilize the economy, specifically by manipulating the levels and allocations of taxes and government expenditures. Fiscal measures are frequently used in tandem with monetary policy to achieve certain goals."[1] In the Philippines, this is characterized by continuous and increasing levels of debt and budget deficits, though there have been improvements in the last few years.[2] The Philippine government’s main source of revenue are taxes, with some non-tax revenue also being collected. To finance fiscal deficit and debt, the Philippines relies on both domestic and external sources. Fiscal policy during the Marcos administration was primarily focused on indirect tax collection and on government spending on economic services and infrastructure development. The first Aquino administration inherited a large fiscal deficit from the previous administration, but managed to reduce fiscal imbalance and improve tax collection through the introduction of the 1986 Tax Reform Program and the value added tax. The Ramos administration experienced budget surpluses due to substantial gains from the massive sale of government assets and strong foreign investment in its early years. However, the implementation of the 1997 Comprehensive Tax Reform Program and the onset of the Asian financial......

...the events that lead up to the explosion. Martin states: “One hundred and eleven men were killed in that explosion. Killed needlessly, for almost everybody concerned had known for months, even years, that the mine was dangerous. Yet nobody had done anything effective about it” (Stillman 31). Initially, the thought and idea that a community would allow such a horrific event to occur that could have been prevented is terrifying and somewhat startling. Martin uses his case study to explore various questions regarding this mine disaster as well as the background and other potential issues surrounding the explosion. Purpose The overall goal of this case study is to place an emphasis on how dependent modern day society is on public administration to handle chaotic or unexpected situations. In exploring various aspects of this catastrophe, Martin explores the following: (1). A coal company sensitive only to profit incentives. (2). State regulatory agencies inadequately enforcing mine safety legislation. (3). Federal officials and mine unions complacent about a growing problem. (4). The miners incapable of protecting themselves against the impending disaster. Ultimately, “Modern society depends on the proper functioning of unseen administrative arrangements--- for safeguarding our environment; for protecting the purity of our food; for......

Is There a Philippine Public Administration? or Better Still, for Whom Is Philippine Public Administration?

...Fernandez Yes, there is a Philippine Public Administration Is there a Philippine public administration? A number of our colleagues asked us why we are asking that question again as we were planning this colloquium. Indeed that question had been asked 20 years ago, and answers have been provided us by eminent scholars of Public Administration such as Raul de Guzman and Onofre Corpuz. After two decades, we think it is worthwhile to revisit the issue and ask our colleagues once again to answer the question, “Is there a Philippine Public Administration?” This time around, we take the question a little further and ask an equally important second question, “If there is a Philippine Public Administration, then for whom does Philippine Public Administration exist?” Among the basic references we have been using in the general introductory course in Public Administration at both the graduate (PA 201) and undergraduate (PA 11) levels are essays by the aforementioned eminent scholars of Philippine Public Administration (Dr de Guzman and Dr Corpuz). These essays were published in a special issue of the Philippine Journal of Public Administration in 1986 (PJPA).3 While de Guzman and Corpuz both assert that there is a Philippine Public Administration, both also suggest that the question be properly contextualized. There is a Philippine Public Administration as far as there is an American, French and Thai public administration. There is a Philippine public administration as far as......

Lourdes Cuenco SUBMITTED TO PROFESSOR CYNTHIA RAVELA CUBOS June 28, 2011 THEORIES OF EXPENDITURE GROWTH Three prominent theories that used the time-pattern of expenditure in the long-run to explain the expansion of the public sector are discuss in this chapter. Although this theories were formulated based on the experience of the now developed countries, the general idea of government expansion and the underlying concepts provide some explanations as to the pattern and growth of our government. Adolph Wagner a 19th century German political economist. Who made one of the earliest attempts to explain public sector growth. Observe the tendency of the public sector in a number of industrialize countries such as Britain, USA, France, Germany, etc. to grow, both absolutely and relative to the rest of the economy. He predicted a public sector that would grow continuously, and considered society’s economic and social structure as factors that influenced this continuous growth. Wagner’s prediction was called the “law of increasing public and particularly state activities” or the “Wagner’s Law”. The equation below shows Wagner’s presumption that the existence of a functional cause and effect relationship between growth of an economy and the relative growth of its public sector. ......

Supapo West Visayas State University College of Education La Paz, Iloilo City, Philippines brazamelanie@gmail.com swedensupaposobrevega@gmail.com ABSTRACT This study was an attempt to find out the problems and solutions of one rural grade 7 teacher in a Philippine public high school in the implementation of K to 12 Mathematics curriculum. It is believed that knowledge is constructed when learners are able to draw ideas from their own experiences and connects them to new ideas while cooperative learning puts premium on active learning achieved by working with fellow learners as they all engage in a shared task. There were three main problem categories/themes including administrativerelated, teacher-related and student-related. The findings include: (a) lack of trainings, seminars, unclear standard operating procedures, (b) late arrival and lack of modules, (c) developing/weak teaching skills and strategies, (d) teacher’s difficulty in teaching the subjects or contents, (e)lack of time to tackle the content efficiently, (f) unavailability or lack of instructional materials, (g) non-mastery of the basic concepts and skills, (h) poor problem solving and critical thinking skills (i) indifferent student behaviour. The solutions are sharing of modules or guides, conducting cooperative learning class,...

Philippine Public Administration Critique

...Subject: Theories of Public Administration (PA 4001) Schedule: 8-11am Sat Instructor: Atty. Cyril Bryan Dosdos Cuizon MPA CRITIQUE ON: The article, “Is there a Philippine Public Administration” by: Alex Brillantes Jr. and Maricel Fernandez I cannot see the author’s black and white answer for the title of their article since it only points out the undertakings and management of the Philippine Government and Civil Society. If I were to answer the question, I would say, “Yes, there is, obviously.” We have the government structure with parts working together as whole for the benefit of everyone. Someone said, ”When there is government there is public administration.” I agree to that thought. Because public administration as defined, “ refers to the people (beaurocrats) running the people or people running the management(government). The authors also asked, “For whom is public administration?” Yes, why complicate things? Isn’t it from the word itself? It involves the public.  Technically, it involves the people in government. However, the government’s aim is to service the people. Thus, benefits people or private society with regards to the efficiency of the administration and management of the government . It’s like going in circles. Another question raised was, “Is public administration relevant?” Yes, indeed. We need a tool for the government’s performance. It's for the benefit of the public managers and the general public as well. It's......
