BILIRAN – DPWH-Biliran District Engineering Office (BDEO), is still in full swing in the implementation of its FY 2016 Infrastructure Projects. As of June 30, 2016, out of 66 lined-up projects of BDEO, 53 projects were already completed while 9 projects are on-going which includes road widening, flood control, multi-purpose building, water supply projects, multi-purpose pavement, concrete pathway and many others.
District Engineer, David P. Adongay Jr. revealed that there are still 4 projects which are not yet started under the 2016 Regular Infrastructure Projects. These are the repair of Biliran Bridge (B00057BR) along Leyte-Biiliran Road, Repair of Bilwang Bridge (B00058BR) along Biliran Circumferential Road, Repair of Looc Bridge (B00035BR) along Biliran Circumferential Road and Repair of Cabibihan Bridge (B00027BR) along Biliran Circumferential Road. Engr. Adongay said that the remaining projects were already Bid Out and with Notice to Proceed.
To date, the district has an overall actual accomplishment of 77.06% with a negative slippage of 4.91%. The negative slippage came about because of the slight delay in the project implementation of Construction of Slope protection along Biliran Circumferential Road. Nevertheless, the overall accomplishment is still high considering the onset of rainy days.
This is in consensus with the policy of the Department to implement the right project with the right cost determined through competitive and transparent public bidding with the right quality in accordance with international standards delivered at the right time through close monitoring of project implementation carried out by the right people who are competent and uphold the values of professionalism, integrity, excellence, public service and teamwork.
With all these projects, indeed Biliran DEO is lucky enough to be able to uphold the goals and policies of the Department under the leadership of District Engineer David P. Adongay, Jr, DPA on its commitment to selfless public service through proper implementation of the district’s projects.
