The Reference Materials above relate particularly to the Full Disclosure Policy and to understanding its context and applicability.  There are three sections:  the Policy Background on the FDP, LGU Fiscal Management References, and some Training Materials.  The reader should note that there are many other references that can be useful to CSOs, like those that focus on engagement, but which were not included here.  For those organizations that may want their materials to be considered for inclusion, please contact the DILG Bureau of Local Government Supervision Content Management officer, Kris Aragon, at lad_blgs@yahoo.com.
