GAD Planning and Budgeting
Transcript of GAD Planning and Budgeting
The LGU GAD Plan and Budget (GPB) shall be:
1. Formulated within the context of the LGU mandate to ensure gender mainstreaming in PPAs.
2. Synchronized with the planning and budgeting calendar (DILG-NEDA-DBM-DOF JMC 2007-01)
3. Incorporated in the CLUP, CDP, AIP, ELA and in sector plans (e.g. DRRM plans)
4. In identifying GAD PPAs, priority is given to emerging and/or continuing issues and concerns on:
6. Provision of adequate resources by the LCE; GPB implementation should not be affected by austerity measures.
7) The GAD budget, which is the cost of implementing the GAD plan shall form part of and is not in addition to the LGUs’ Annual Budget.
8) Consultation with employees and constituencies through accredited women or people/civil society organizations, among others to ensure the relevance of their GPBs.
9) GAD planning and budgeting shall adhere to Executive Order 43 s. 2011 (Social Contract) [bottom-up Budgeting]
STEPS IN FORMULATING THE LGU GAD PLAN
AND BUDGET (GPB)
1 . In consultation with local functionaries/ stakeholders, the LGU GFPS shall set the GAD agenda or identify priority gender issues to be addressed by the LGU during the three-year term of its leadership.
5. For effective planning and implementation of GAD PPAs, essential elements in GAD planning and budgeting should be in place:
(a) creation and strengthening of the LGU GFPS;
(b) capacity development on gender mainstreaming, gender-responsive planning and budgeting, gender analysis and gender assessment;
(c) institutionalization of the GAD database.
i. Review of GAD-related laws and policies relevant to the LGU (Section 2.0 and item C.1.4 of JMC);
ii. Results of gender analysis and/or gender assessment using sex-disaggregated data (LGU GAD database, Ecological Profile, CBMS and/or LGPMS/NHTS-PR, LGU’s major programs and services of the LGU reflecting gender gaps/issues);
iii. Results of program and project evaluation in terms of benefits to target beneficiaries; and
iv. Review of COA audit findings and GAD ARs to surface remaining gender issues not addressed in previous GPBs.
GAD Planning and Budgeting
2. Identify appropriate PPAs to address priority gender issues that are included in the GPB.
PPAs may be client-focused (addressing gender mainstreaming in regular/flagship PPAs); and organization-focused (addressing gender issues of the LGU and its personnel).
3. The GAD Budget is prepared based on the estimated costs of functions and PPAs translated from the demands/commitments identified in the GAD Plan.
4. Fill out the GPB and GAD AR forms
(Refer to Annex D: Guide in Completing the LGU GAD Plan and Budget Form; and Annex E: Guide in Completing the LGU GAD Accomplishment Report Form).
1. At least five percent (5%) of the total LGU budget appropriations authorized under the Annual Budget shall correspond to activities supporting GAD PPAs.
The GAD budget shall be drawn from the LGU’s maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE), capital outlay (CO), and personal services (PS).
The GAD budget shall not constitute an additional budget over an LGU’s total budget appropriations.
2) The five percent (5%) GAD budget shall endeavor to influence the remaining 95% of the LGU budget toward gender-responsiveness.
