NAVAL, Biliran – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) -Biliran District Engineering Office (DEO) achieved 61.14% accomplishment of its 2019 infrastructure projects as of October 31, 2019.
With only few months left before the year ends, David P. Adongay Jr., District Engineer said that they are rushing the completion of its on-going projects to meet the district’s target accomplishment.
Out of the 92 projects for 2019 implementation, Biliran DEO has completed 39 while 43 are on-going and 10 are Not-Yet-Started (NYS).
Adongay revealed that the district office posts a negative slippage of 6.07% as of October 31, 2019.
“We have already discussed this with the section chiefs and technical staffs and we are doing immediate actions. Hindi pwede pabayaan lang natin na magdecrease ang performance ng district kasi maaapektuhan ang future development ng Biliran,” he said.
For 2019, DPWH-Biliran DEO has a total allotment budget of P1.28B.
According to Adongay, budget funding for next year will depend on the performance of the district office in terms of its physical and financial accomplishment.
“Less budget also means we will be forced to terminate few of our job orders which plays a vital role in our day to day operation,” he said.
Despite of the haste in the implementation, Adongay ensures that quality of projects will not be compromised.
Adongay reported that 15 infrastructure projects have already been completed this October. These projects include the construction of P3.9M gymnasium at Brgy. P.S. Eamiguel, P1.95M completion of Boy Scout of the Philippines (BSP) building (Phase II) at Brgy.
