It was a night when everyone was beaming with so much pride. Bocaue Mayor Joni Villanueva led the municipality's executives in formally receiving their ISO 9001:2015 certificate from Société Generale de Surveillance (SGS Philippines).

The formal awarding of certification was the highlight of the local government unit’s annual Taxpayers' Night at the Municipal Covered Court. Taxpayers whom Mayor Villanueva called as "partners in development" all converged at the municipal grounds and were treated to a presentation of where their taxes go.

Municipality of Bocaue Award

SGS Philippines' Ariel Miranda (Managing Director) awards Mayor Joni Villanueva with the ISO 9001:2015 certificate during the annual Taxpayer's Night. On stage are representatives from the Municipality of Bocaue and SGS Philippines.

From simultaneous infrastructure projects to livelihood assistance for constituents to tourism initiatives, among others, Mayor Villanueva gave a very detailed report on how the local government spends every centavo of their fund.

The Mayor also emphasized that the municipal offices continue to look for ways to further improve their services for Bocaueños and that the ISO certification is a validation that the local government is heading the right direction.

"We thank you for the trust. This ISO certification is our way of giving back to you," Mayor Joni told the taxpayers.

Bocaue is the first and, by far, the one of only two municipalities in the Philippines to be ISO 9001:2015 certified. This certification is awarded to local government units that have complied with International Standards on Quality Management System.

Mr. Ariel Miranda, Managing Director of SGS Philippines graced the event to formally present the certification to Mayor Villanueva.
