The Tacurong City Local Government Operations Office (CLGOO) with the Sanguniang Panlungsod (SP) of Tacurong enjoins all existing and active non-government organizations (NGOs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) in the city to apply for re-accreditation.

At the same time, new organizations are also required to apply for accreditation. This accreditation is a requirement for NGOs and CSOs to be part of the local government unit’s special bodies.

To be (re) accredited, NGOs and CSOs must submit the following to the Tacurong SP: 1) application letter; 2) duly accomplished Application Form for Accreditation; 3) Board Resolution signifying intention for accreditation for the purpose of representation in the local special body; 4) Certificate of Registration (CoR); in case of Indigenous Peoples Organization, CoR must be issued by NCIP; 5) list of current officers and members; 6) annual accomplishment report for the immediately preceding year; and 7) financial statement. The financial statement must be signed by the organization’s executive officers, also of the immediately preceding year. It should also indicate other information such as source of fund(s).

DILG called for NGOs’ and CSOs’ accreditation and re-accreditation through Memo Circular No. 2013-70.
