The Iloilo City government recently received the 2017 Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

“This is one [criterion] for the [Seal of Good Local Governance] award,” said DILG city director, Atty. Ferdinand Panes. “If a local government could not pass this indicator, it will be automatically disqualified.”
He noted, in order to receive the Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping, a city government must be able to submit Commission on Audit (COA) opinion of the immediately preceding year.
Other areas emphasized by the Seal of Good Local Governance are disaster preparedness; social protection; peace and order; business-friendliness and competitiveness; environmental protection; and tourism, arts and culture.
