DPWH intensifies campaign vs red tape

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (5 November) -- Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr. of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) reported that they have intensified their fight against graft and corruption through a series of information campaign in its different regional offices throughout the country.

The activity is in compliance with President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's Administrative Order No. 241.

AO 241 orders all government departments, bureaus and instrumentalities to streamline and post the procedures for the 20 'most heavily utilized processes or services'.

It also instructed the government agencies to set up a system to curb so-called fixing in their workplaces and subsequently file criminal and/or administrative cases against fixers not later than March 31, 2009, the DPWH press report disclosed.

"We are continuously promoting transparency in all our operations by developing our clientele feedback mechanism" Ebdane said as he emphasized that at the start of his administration in the DPWH, he implemented the DPWH Txt 2920, which is a mobile phone complaints and inquiry system that aims to immediately respond to the inquiries and complaints of the public.

The DPWH press report disclosed that aside from the Txt 2920, the DPWH also has an on-line feedback mechanism where in the public can inquire and address issues and concerns to the DPWH through the web, the DPWH Walk-in and Telephone Hotline (Tel No. 3043280 and 3043279) Monitoring System, and the computerized Document Tracking System for the processing of procurement of goods and civil works.
