Review of Related Literature

In order to unravel the different problems encountered in assessing competency

measures of Barangay Ordinance, descriptive method was used. Descriptive

investigation include those studies that purport to present facts concerning the nature

status of anything- a group of persons, a number or objects, a set of conditions a class

of events, a system of thought or any king of phenomena which one way wish to

study (Orcullo, 2000). In essence, the proponent ised such method to understand and

interpret easily the respondent’s view point. It was through this method that the

respondents had easily answered the question on the interview.

In the most Barangays in the Philippines, effects of the observance of competency

mearsure of barangay officials are monitored rarely and insome cases it is measured

subjectively thru intuition or feelings. This method does not provide effective measure

of competenct of elected local goverment officials (Callo, 2003)

Sorenson’s (2006) study in Norway describes political transaction costs as

obstacles to consolidation. The central government has promised o maintain grant

levels in local government, which are generous, to compensate for dis-economies of

scale. However, the promises may not be credible. Property rights had been nullified
after consolidation, prompting municipalities with high revenues to oppose merger

with proper neighbors.

Summary of Findings and Conclusion

A triangulation method of research was employed using the questionnaire to

gather pertinent information which was corroborated with information gathered from

the guided ind=formal interview with appointed Barangay Secretary and Treasurer.

Cut across of these data, the journal of the researcher was used to validated the

veracity and genuineness of information gathered from two sources.

The findings showed that majority of the respondents are male, aged 58 and above,

married; college level,; their primary occupation prior to be elected were farming and

self-employed of which of them continued even after election as additional sources of

income.

It was also found the majority are in their first term of office. On the awareness of

their duties and responsibilities, most of the respondents showed have the same level

of awareness pertain to health and social services, garbage collection, administration

of barangay court for mediation and maintenance of peace and order. However, they

are not fully aware on taxation and authority to receive contribution from private and

the Barangay Secretary and Treasurer have no idea about it. On the trainings attended

to improve performance of duties and responsibilities was affirmed that they had no

training attended while they had no idea whether their officials had attended any

training, the rest of the respondents affirmed participation in different training. The
expressed the following problems, such as: lack of funds, complaints regarding

penalties imposed by Barangay and lack of participation among constituents. The rest

of the respondents were awkward to share their problems instead declared that they do

not have problem encountered.

performing their duties and responsibilities; have a higher educational attainment to
