The Performance Governance System (PGS) is a successful management tool for local government unit, national government agencies, civil society organizations and the private sector to work together on improving governance, service delivery and community living standards. It was introduced by the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA) in the Philippines. It is based on Kaplan and Norton's Balanced Scorecard System from the Harvard Business School. The installation of the Balanced Scorecard System in the Province of La Union through the PGS entails the installation of the Office for Strategy Management (OSM), the OSM is a requirement in the Compliance Stage of the PGS Pathway. The OSM is the owner of the key processes in the management system. It integrates and coordinates activities that align strategy and operations. It also facilitates the execution of processes that cross business and functional lines. The establishment of the OSM in the Province of La Union as the Oversight of Provincial Strategy (OPS) will make the province the first among the Provincial Practitioners to be able to establish a full plantilla positions for the office. The success of the PGS lies on the functionality of the OPS leading the Province to be the first success story of the PGS at the provincial level.
