COA, DBM to enforce ban on public works projects

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan de Oro City (19 February) -- The Commission on Audit (COA) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) are designated as deputies of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to enforce the ban on public works projects relative to the upcoming May elections.

Thus clarified Atty. Renato A. Magbutay, Regional Elections Director of region 10, who said that effective March 26 until May 10, 2010, no public official or employee will release, disburse or expend any public funds for any and all kinds of public works project.

However, Comelec Resolution No. 8732, promulgated last Dec. 23, allows the following exemptions:

Maintenance of existing and / or completed public works project, provided that no additional laborers shall be employed for maintenance work starting March 26 until May 10, 2010.

Work undertaken by contract through public bidding held or by negotiated contract awarded before March 26, 2010, provided that work under the so-called "takay" or "pakyaw" system shall not be considered as work by contract.

Emergency work necessitated by the occurrence of a public calamity, but such work will be limited to the restoration of the damaged facility.

Magbutay also clarified that the prohibition will not apply to on-going public works projects which were started before the campaign period or similar projects under foreign agreements. (PIA 10) [top]
