DOTC devolved to ARMM
Koronadal, South Cotabato (16 April) -- Finally, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Central has been devolved to the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) so the Region has DOTC-ARMM now.
This was made possible by ARMM Governor Datu Zaldy U. Ampatuan.
Seven attached agencies were devolved to DOTC-ARMM recently through Department Order No. 97-1113 based on executive Order No. 292 known as Administrative Code of 1987 and Executive Order No. 435 of August 28, 1997.
DOTC-ARMM Secretary Camid Gandamra said that their office is awaiting the transfer of “accountable forms” from DOTC-Central in Manila to DOTC-ARMM so financial transactions with DOTC-ARMM can be effected. (wrb/PIA 12) [top]
