Description of the Program
Gawad Galing Sanggunian (GGS) is an annual program of the Provincial Government of Bulacan, through the initiative of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, which acknowledges and confers awards to outstanding municipal and city sanggunians, presiding officers, councilors and secretaries for their exemplary performance and accomplishments.
Formerly known as Search for Outstanding Sangguniang Bayan Awards, the project was renamed as Gawad Galing Sanggunian or GGS in 2006 by virtue of Provincial Ordinance No. 2006-05 (Provincial Resolution No. 2006-331), authored and sponsored by Board Member Rodrigo S. Santos and Board Member Glenn B. Santos and enacted by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan on September 4, 2006.
GGS was envisioned and implemented by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan primarily for the purpose of giving due recognition and appreciation to the local legislators - the sangguniang bayans and sangguniang panlungsods, the presiding officers (vice-mayors), the councilors and the secretaries, for their commendable efforts of making significant and relevant legislations complementary to the efforts of the local government executives in coming up with effective and efficient public service beneficial to the community.
On May 14, 2008, the program was further amended by virtue of Provincial Ordinance 02-S'08 (Provincial Resolution No. 099-S'08) authored by Board Member Glenn B. Santos and Board Member Michael C. Fermin, to include the following amendments:
