CARIGARA, Leyte – Directing to a transparent implementation of infrastructure projects, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second District Engineering Office fortified relationship with the Commission on Audit (COA).
According to District Engineer Gerald Pacanan, auditors would now join the inspectorate team in the regular inspection of the district’s infrastructure projects.
“With the help of COA, we would be able to expedite and enrich the quality of our projects through their recommendations for more efficient and effective operations,” Pacanan said.
It is the primary function of COA to examine, audit and settle all accounts and expenditures of the funds and properties of the Philippine government.
Pacanan added that the department is closely monitoring the infrastructure programs of the government as per mandate of President Rodrigo Duterte to expedite the implementation of DPWH projects.
To quote Duterte’s statement, “As an important part of the Build, Build, Build Program, I expect you to fast track the implementation of all infrastructure projects already in the pipeline”.
Since Pacanan’s post, key officials of the district engineering office are conducting weekly regular inspection in order to ensure that plans and specifications are adhered in the implementation of projects.
The two agencies are working closely together to come up with accurate and competent standards of projects for a more efficient government service.
