The National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women, in partnership with frontline agencies conceptualized and developed performance standards to serve as indicators for the delivery of anti-VAW services of government agencies and LGUs. Partner agencies are DOJ, PNP, DOH, DILG, DSWD and the LGUs. Each of the performance standards is accompanied by an Assessment Tool. The Assessment Tool, which has the same parameters and indicators as the performance standards, aims to determine the degree that the set standards are adhered to.
The development and finalization of these performance standards was a result of the concerted efforts of local government units, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) through the National Barangay Operations Office, the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW) and partner non-government organizations. The development of this tool was assisted by a consultant Ms. Mary Jardiniano of D2KA (District 2 Kababaihan Laban sa Karahasan). The project was supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
