CALBAYOG CITY – Samar First District Engineering Office (SFDEO) has once again bagged the first place in the overall ranking of DEOs in Region 8 for the year 2018, under the Communications Development Program of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
Every month, DEOs are given star ratings based on the quantity, content and timeliness of public information materials they submit to the Regional Office as well as items published in various media. Monthly ComDev ratings are then tallied to produce the final rankings for the year.
Samar 1st District Engineer Alvin Ignacio officially received the certificate of recognition, which was presented by DPWH-RO8 Director Nerie Bueno during the Regional Monthly Coordination meeting held last June 18, 2019 at the Club House, Pawing, Palo, Leyte.
The recognition is a reflection of the tireless efforts of the SFDEO Public Information Office under the leadership of Administrative Chief and then PIO-Designate Ma. Nenita Gomez.
“We were blessed to have had talented personnel under our wings, whose skills we could employ to their utmost potential. Of course, we also had full support from the management, so we had all the equipment and resources we needed,” the chief says.
Through the DevCom Program, the department awards DEOs that work diligently towards keeping the public informed and maintaining transparency for all projects they undertake. This is the sixth consecutive year that Samar I ranked #1 among all thirteen (13) DEOs in the region.
