The SubayBAYANI Award is granted to recognize the excellent and consistent performance of a Local Government Unit and DILG Focal Persons for enrolled locally-funded projects and infrastructe programs under the SubayBAYAN platform.

“Ang pagkilala pong ito ng DILG sa atin ay isang patunay lamang na nararamdaman po ng bawat Angeleño ang serbisyong may puso na atin pong inilalaan para sa mga proyektong pangkaunlaran,” Lazatin said.
“Maraming salamat po sa DILG sa pagkilalang ito,” Lazatin added. “Nais ko rin pong batiin ang mga katuwang nating opisina at empleyado sa Angeles City Hall sa pagkamit ng pagkilalang ito.”
The SubayBAYANI Award is the barometer of the DILG in the advocacy of preserving transparency and accountability in the conduct of local project implementation and management.
The program focuses on the comprehensive, complete, and updated monitoring of project implementations of the LGUs which can be accessed through the SubayBAYAN system.
