In recognition to the vital role of Local Government Units (LGUs) in the development of the country, the Regional Development Council-I (RDC-1) has accorded the Provincial Government of la Union, led by Gov. Manuel C. Ortega, the Hall of Fame Award as the Best Performing LGU in the implementation of the Local Governance Performance Management System (LGPMS) for 2006, 2007 and 2008 in a simple ceremony held on February 20, 2009 at the Central Bank Convention Hall.

LGPMS is a self-assessment system which allows LGUs to determine their respective capabilities and limitations in the delivery of essential public service and identify service improvement areas and determine the extent of improvements to be made. As a tool, it supports the development of local governments through improved use of financial and human resources; benchmarks local government performance against established standards; and serves as basis and reference for nationally policy-makers as based on the state of development among LGUs for the eventual realization of responsive community and nation-building.

The regional award confirms the competence of our local governance and the strong sense of unity of the people of the Province of La Union.
