The key and plume respectively symbolize the LGUs’ treasury and assessment services being supervised by the BLGF, functions of which in local public financial management are vital for LGUs to harness and optimize their resources for fiscal sustainability and better public service delivery.
The scroll beneath the shield marks the BLGF as an attached bureau of the DOF supporting the performance of its mandates.
