PIA Press Release

Gov't warns impostors transacting in gov't offices

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (28 June) -- Following the implementation of Republic Act 9485, which was signed into law by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the Association of Regional Executives of National Agencies (ARENA) in southern Mindanao has been alerted on impostors transacting business with various government offices.

Earlier, in a recent visit to Davao city of DPWH acting Secretary Manuel Bonoan , he told mediamen that he will never allow anybody to use his name especially impostors claiming to be his relatives to get favorable considerations from DPWH offices.

ARENA XI president Engr. Dimas Soguilon, Director of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in the region also alerted ARENA regional executives including his personnel in the various districts of the department to be on alert against impostors doing transactions with DPWH.

RA 9485 otherwise known as the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007, signed into law by the President seeks to cut bureaucratic red tape, clean up transactions with the government and impose stiff penalties on violators.

The government is held primarily responsible by law for its implementation and is also held accountable to the public in rendering fast, efficient, convenient and reliable services.

The new law requires government agencies to adopt simplified measures to expedite transactions in all government agencies, including the local government units (LGUs) and government-owned and controlled corporations, adopt fixed deadline for the completion of transactions and to regularly assess and upgrade their frontline services.

Some people pretend to be close relatives or friends of high officials assigned with the Office of the President to be able to get business transactions and favorable considerations from government offices.

We should avoid transacting with this kind of people, Director Dimas said.

At present, ARENA executive members are using the newly inaugurated ARENA office Davao Airport View Building, and uses the regular "Government in Action" radio and television program as a venue in informing the public what the government is doing to hasten social services as envisioned by President Macapagal-Arroyo.
