To ensure efficient, transparent, and honest handling of sub-project funds.Financial
Monitoring.docx
IS CBFM DIFFERENT FROM GAAM?
• The CBFM follows the usual government laws, rules and
regulations on fund receipts and disbursements except for
some unique features.
• For example, the community is allowed to make partial
payment to partially delivered indigenous materials.
• But, systems and procedures provided in the CBFM are
simpler. Forms, books and reports are formatted for easier
use.
• It follows the same internal audit principles but with very
straightforward methods and procedures.
WHY IS CBFM IMPORTANT?
• One key feature of CDD is making resources
available to communities.
• In the KALAHI-CIDSS, this is undertaken through
direct fund transfers to a community account,
guided by the “one-fund concept”.
• It means, management of funds is done at the
community level.
• Hence, it is critical for community members
and local volunteers to have a basic
understanding of financial management and
accounting procedures to ensure that these
resources are efficiently utilized for its intended
purpose.
WHAT ARE THE SOURCES FUNDS?
• DSWD Grant Funds
• TAF = P15,000 per barangay
• MGA per cycle = Allocation per head x population
 but not lower than P2,000,000 and not higher than P20,000,000
• Released in tranches (50-40-10 to 80-10-10; 90-10 for DRO)
• Grants Excess Fund.doc
• Local Counterpart Contributions (same as GPBP requirements)
• Year 1 (2014)
• For 554 (177+377) Munis – Capacity Building and Implementation Support (CBIS)
Only
• For 293 Munis – Sub-Project Implementation (SPI) + CBIS
• Year 2 (2015)

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FUND (TAF)
• TAF ALLOCATION = P15,000 per barangay
• Under DRO, TAF IS REGIONALLY-MANAGED
• For Non-Yolanda affected areas:
• Community-managed or Regionally-managed
• ELIGIBLE EXPENSES
• Professional Fees
• Pre-Engineering Works
• Supervision
• Preparation of Feasibility Studies (Livelihood proposals)
• Reproduction of plans, designs and drawings
• Salaries, travel expenses, communication and supplies of hired technical experts
• The TAF may be used for sub-project proposals that are NOT technically complicated or with proforma plans.
DSWD RO-MANAGED TAF
• Basis for the Municipality to avail TAF
• MDRRMC Resolution to request TAF
• Purpose i.e. Pre-Engineering, FS or Supervision; Amount
• SRPMO to:
• Review and consolidate TA needs
• Allocate resources according to TA needs
• Recommend to RPMO results of resource allocation
• RPMO
• Procurement of TA Providers following Program Procurement guidelines
• Disbursement shall follow Program Finance guidelines
COMMUNITY-MANAGED TAF
• If there are barangays that are in need of technical assistance, the MIBF will
pass a Resolution to avail TAF from the municipal allocation and engage
technical support personnel. The MIBF will elect one barangay to lead the
search for qualified technical service providers with the assistance of the
ACT.
• The elected lead barangay will secure a Barangay Council Resolution
authorizing the PPT Head or BSPMC Chair (if already selected), the Treasurer
and AC to open a checking account with the nearest Land Bank of the
Philippines branch. The account name must be “DSWD-KALAHINCDDP/(Name of Barangay)”.
COMMUNITY-MANAGED TAF)
• The Treasurer shall apply for additional bond to the Bureau of Treasury in
case premium paid is insufficient to cover current maximum accountability
(determined by computing average amount of checks to be signed per
month). Payment for the bond premium will be from LCC cash.
• The ACT will generate a list of potential service providers for technical
assistance. The list must show the names of individuals or firms with
corresponding areas of expertise and experience. The ACT may also
coordinate with regional and provincial-based professional organizations
for their list of experts (e.g. PICE, PICPA, etc.)
• The potential service providers may be invited to be oriented on the Terms
of Reference (TOR). Procurement will follow the appropriate method as
provided in the Community-Based Procurement Manual.

LGU PROJECT AS LCC
• Must be indicated in the approved LPRAP.
• Must be presented and declared in the MIBF that said Project will
serve as LCC.

also be used as LCC for other agencies for proper notation in the
financial and physical monitoring reports.

WHY REQUIRE LCC?
“Kami ang
gumawa dito.
Habangbuhay
sa amin ito.”
Ownership leads to experienced responsibility and stewardship.
