July 4, 2015
BAGUIO CITY – During the executive-legislative meeting last Monday, mayor Mauricio Domogan directed the City Buildings and Architecture Office headed by the newly appointed Engr. Nazita Bañez to monitor the performances of the contractors in the implementation of a certain project.
With the various national road projects being implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways, Domogan is very aware that there is a serious problem the people of this mountain resort is experiencing due to the ineffective implementation of road construction and rehabilitation projects.
On the other hand, there were some city projects that the CBAO did not accept because of the deficiency of the project.
Domogan expressed his dismay with the performances of the contractors, and to prevent problems on the project implementation happening again, he instructed Engr. Bañez to submit a report on deficient projects to the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) for appropriate action and at the same time to forewarn the BAC not to get the same contractor in the future projects.
“Look into the contractor’s available manpower, equipment and project backgrounds before qualifying them to the bidding process to ensure efficiency,” stressed the mayor.
With regards big projects, he directed CBAO to give tract of records of every contractor for performance monitoring purposes.
On barangay projects, SP committee on urban planning, lands and housing chair and councilor Leandro Yangot, Jr. proposed to come up with a system in order to fast tract the preparation of program of works and at the same time add manpower through a job order appointment.
Also, in identifying sites for a certain barangay project, it is important for the city to validate first the site so as to avoid problem in the implementation of the said project.
“Being the project implementer, let us help each other in monitoring the performances of the contractors to avoid the same setback in the implementation of city project,” said Domogan./Jho Arranz
