PIA Press Release

DPWH strengthens safeguards vs inefficiences

Iloilo City (9 February) -- Public Works and Highways 6 Dir. Rolando Asis said the strong safeguards against agency inefficiencies and anomalies are the conviction of their people, the vigilance of the public and the Resiliency Plan which they are starting to implement this year.

"Amidst perceptions of corruption and inefficiencies, we just keep on working to prove that in our agency there are, if any, only isolated cases of misbehavior," Asis said.

"We always urge the public to report misbehavior and inefficiency to our office and I tell my staff to give this urgent attention," he added.

Dir. Asis said that they have started implementing a Resiliency Plan that is intended to ensure that implementation of projects is guaranteed, with sufficient funds available.

In this scheme, Asis said, bidding is first done before the release of the sub-allotment advice so that there is a guarantee that there is a project, there is a qualified contractor and there are funds that are to be used as needed.

"With the Resiliency Plan, there is an assurance of jobs to be generated, of work to those who need it most, especially in the country sides. This way, funds are utilized, otherwise, it will have a negative impact on the economy," Asis said.

With this plan also, Asis said, he expected that half of the P5 billion for the infrastructures for 2009 will have been utilized.

He added that this will also boost the agency high impact projects for thyear, which include the upgrading of the Nautical Highway from Caticlan to Iloilo, from asphalt concrete to Portland cement concrete pavement.

Included also are the 26 bridges, 16 of which are located in Antique, under the Tulay ng Pangulo Project. (ESS/PIA 6) [top]
