The SGLG is the high­est award given an­nu­ally by the De­part­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment (DILG).

The SGLG was es­tab­lished in 2014, em­bod­ied in the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Code of 1991, that chal­lenges lo­cal gov­ern­ment units to be­come part­ners of the na­tional gov­ern­ment to­wards good gov­er­nance, which for this year, was lev­elled up to seven gov­er­nance ar­eas.

These seven ar­eas in­clude fi­nan­cial ad­min­is­tra­tion, dis­as­ter pre­pared­ness, so­cial pro­tec­tion, peace and or­der, busi­ness­friend­li­ness and com­pet­i­tive­ness, en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, and tourism, cul­ture, and the arts.

Based on the gov­er­nance assess­ment re­port which was re­leased by the DILG, the City of San Fer­nando suc­cess­fully met the cri­te­ria in each area.

For this year, a to­tal of 263 LGUs were awarded the SGLG, in­clud­ing 43 from Cen­tral Lu­zon, mak­ing it the sec­ond best per­form­ing re­gion, next to Ilo­cos Re­gion.
