Aside from making laws, the legislative body had also instituted other noteworthy projects, such as the prestigious “Gawad Galing Sanggunian.” Started since 1991 and considered the “banner project “ of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, GGS, is an annual search for outstanding sanggunians and legislators chosen from the 21 sangguniang bayans and 3 sangguniang panlungsods of the province. For year 2105, GGS was started early with the GGS Screening Committee doing the actual visitations and evaluations of the 21 sangguniang bayans and 3 sangguniang panlungsods, after which, the committee had narrowed down the candidates and made a shortlist, the “cream of the crop,” so to speak, chosen from among the 21 sangguniang bayans and 3 sangguniang panlungsods.

Last November 11, 2015, the GGS Selection Committee interviewed the finalists to finally determine the winners. Awarding is set for next year.

Aside from this, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan is one of the few offices that have a regular weekly radio program, popularly known as “SP Files” at Radyo Bulacan, a privately owned and operated FM station. For 2015, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan was able to air 42 weekly broadcast of the radio program. Hosted by SP Secretary Ma. Perpetua R. Santos and assisted by two staffs from the Office of the Secretary to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (OSSP), namely, Renato Francisco and Anthony Amizona, the radio program is aired every Wednesday at 10:00 to 11:00 in the morning.

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan, through the Office of the Secretary to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan also regularly update and maintain a website that contains the latest news and information about the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. It also comes up with a quarterly newsletter, aptly called “Legislative Digest” which is computer-generated and distributed in the 21 municipalities and 3 cities, as well as to the 569 barangays of the province. This newsletter, which was started in 2002, is also posted in the website of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, so it is also read by Bulakeños who are living outside of Bulacan.
