DAVAO, Philippines — Kinilala bilang top performing agency ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) ang tanggapan ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) ng rehiyon dahil sa epektibong pagbibigay ng serbisiyo nito sa mga mamamayan ng Autonomous region.

Ang DPWH-ARMM ang napili mula sa 30 line agencies na sumailalim sa screening at evaluation na isinagawa ng governor’s initiative on system assessment.

Inilunsad ang Governor’s Initiative on System Assesment o GISA ng regional government upang hikayatin ang lahat ng mga departamento sa ilalim ng ARMM na magbigay ng transparent at effecient services sa mga mamamayan sa limang lalawigan ng rehiyon.

Isa sa mga naging basehan upang kilalanin bilang top performing agency ang DPWH-ARMM ay ang pag-rehabilitate at pag-construct nito sa 524.4 kilometers ng mga road network mula sa 7.5 billion pesos na budget.

Nakapagtala din ng 300 million pesos na savings ang kagawaran sa nakalipas na taon.

Una ng inanunsiyo ni DPWH-ARMM Secretary Emil Sadain na sa taong 2015 ay matatapos na nila at makukumpleto ang pagsemento at rehabilitate sa lahat ng mga national roads sa mga lalawigan ng Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-tawi, Lanao Del Sur at Maguindanao sa ilalim na nakalaang 10 billion pesos na budget.

“So kung isusuma total mo as to entire inventory of national roads, 100 percent paved national roads na tayo by 2015. Ibig sabihin, wala na tayong problema sa kalsada sa national roads,” saad ni Sec. Emil Sadain.

Unana ring tiniyak ni Sec. Sadain na nakahanda na silang magbigay daan sa transition period sa taong 2015 kasabay ang pakiusap sa mga opisyal na uupo sa bagong gobyerno na ipagpatuloy ang mga proyektong nakaplano na at nasimulan.

“Especially DPWH na willing kami bumaba to give way to the transition government. Basta ang hinihingi lang namin especially on infrastructures, we wanted the new government or the Bangsamoro government to continue the efforts that we have started.”

Sa transition period, papalitan ang mga kasalukuyang nakaupo sa ARMM government ng mga mapipiling opisyal ng transitional adiminstration. (Louell Requilman, UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines—Newly appointed secretary of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Roger Mercado formally assumed his post on Thursday (October 14).

During a turnover ceremony, former secretary Mark Villar handed over the stewardship of DPWH to Mercado. This was after President Rodrigo Duterte appointed Mercado on October 12.

Villar stepped down as the department secretary to run for senator in the 2022 national elections.

“It is an honor to work with the professional men and women of DPWH and to be able to continue oversee the completion of Department’s flagship infrastructure programs and projects,” Mercado said.

He also vowed to sustain the current momentum in the department in order to “deliver more high-impact projects that will benefit the Filipino people including those living in remote communities.” AAC
