Indicator Relevance/ Description Data Source SGLG Minimum Requirement

Good Financial Housekeeping


1. Audit Opinion + 30% An opinion rendered by Commission on Audit  LGU’s Annual Audit Report by the Provinces, cities and municipalities:
of recommendations based on the fairness of the financial Commission on Audit (CYs 2017
fully complied with statements prepared by a government entity and 2018) 1. Most recent COA Audit Opinion

entities, including LGUs, are mandated to COA website AND
prepare financial statements following the 2. 30% of recommendations fully
accounting standards prescribed by COA, in complied with
accordance with generally accepted
standards for public sector institutions.

Types of opinion:
 Unqualified - signifies that a clear opinion is rendered
which means that the financial statements present
fairly, in all material aspects, the results of the
operations and the financial condition of the local
government unit (LGU) for the period and date
indicated, based on existing government standards,
and in compliance with government laws, rules and
regulations.
 Qualified - Indicates that certain material
transactions and/or accounts have been found to
be improper, are questionable or are requiring more
solid justifications and therefore have not been
passed in audit. The transactions and/or accounts
under questions, however, are not so significant
relative to the total operations of the subject entity,
as to fully negate other aspects of operations which
were found to be in order
 Adverse - Reveals that the financial statements of
the government entity do not fairly present its results
of operations and financial condition, and are not in
compliance with prescribed laws and applicable
guidelines. An adverse opinion puts to question the
entire financial operation of the subject entity and
demonstrates past and/or present management’s
inability to resolve previously disallowed transactions

Indicator Relevance/ Description Data Source SGLG Minimum Requirement

 Disclaimer / No Opinion - means that the auditor of


the subject government entity does not have
sufficient basis to form any opinion on the financial
statements, or the financial statements presented
are inadequate such that no opinion can be made,
or no financial statements are available upon which
an opinion can be rendered. In general, a disclaimer
is worse than an adverse opinion because this shows
management’s failure to perform a basic mandate,
which is to keep adequate records of an agency’s
financial transactions.

The section: Status of Implementation Prior


Years’ Unimplemented Audit
Recommendations in the AAR contains: total
audit recommendations; and no. of
recommendations fully/ partially/ not
implemented. To compute for the

The benchmark 5% increase refers to the sum


of inflation rate - determined by the Philippine
Statistics Authority, and average population
growth rate in the country. This means that an
LGU must not only aim for a simple increase in
collection, but also, ensure that its financial
capacity to deliver services catches up with
the general level rise of prices of goods, and
the growing number of people over the years.
