Transformational Leaders: Local Budget Officers as Agents of Economic Transformation

Budget Secretary Amenah F. Pangandaman underscored the role of local budget officers and public financial managers in the realization of the country’s vision of economic transformation.

“You are all transformational leaders that embody the Public Financial Management (PFM) core values of accountability, transparency, integrity, and fiscal responsibility,” Pangandaman said in her keynote address at the Philippine League of Local Budget Officers (PHILLBO) Visayas Area Conference in Tacloban City, Leyte on November 16.

She also administered the oath-taking ceremony of newly-elected PHILLBO Visayas officers.

On the same day, the Budget Chief visited DBM Regional Office VIII and led the launch of the DBM Knowledge Center which will serve as a repository of information primarily on public financial management which will be accessible to agencies, students, and the public.
