CARIGARA, Leyte – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second District Engineering Office steps out to reach 66% target on Physical accomplishment for the month of September.
In the recent meeting, DPWH explains new terms on the Project Contract Management Application (PCMA) to the contractors.
According to Engr. Ma. Rosario P. Margallo, Monitoring Evaluation Section of the Regional Office 8, the PCMA has now an enterprise-wide application that allows updating throughout the month. She added that the application calculates the percentage completion and slippage based on the reported accomplished Work Items.
The system would recognize contractors with negative slippages and are subject for termination.
District Engineer Carlos G. Veloso requested for the cooperation of the contractors to go beyond the target.
“Our target for this month is 66%. Though, it is better if we go beyond this, so that if we fall short, we would still be able to reach the mark. We must aim high,” Veloso said.
He added that once the Notice of Award is given, contractors must immediately start with the implementation. Moreover, as soon as they see possibility of negative slippage, contractors must file for time suspension and time extension to avoid termination and blacklisting.
The PCMA was made to supply the department’s objective to effectively manage and monitor all infrastructure projects of the administration.
