orders contractors to fast track delayed projects
August 1, 2018
NAVAL, Biliran –
“Fastracking our projects doesn’t mean that we need to sacrifice the
quality of our work, even if we are ordered to accelerate our
accomplishment,” Alfredo L. Bollido, Assistant District Engineer
reiterated to contractors.
Bollido holds a
contractor’s meeting on July 4, 2018 at Biliran District Engineering
Office (BDEO) to address problem on delayed projects of the district
The meeting was called as
directed by District Engineer David P. Adongay Jr. who was attending
a very important meeting at the DPWH Central Office at that time.
From the month of May to
June, 2018, Bollido emphasized that the overall accomplishment of
the district just increased to only 3% a month when it should
supposed to accomplish at least 15% each month.
Bollido said that the
District Engineer wants the contractors to accelerate their work in
order to meet the 15% monthly target accomplishment of the district.
“Allotment of the budget
is based on the performance of the district. If we continue to have
low accomplishment, this will affect our budget allotment for next
year,” Bollido added.
Starting 2019, the
department will be implementing the cash-based policy which means
that contractors have only one year validity period to finish the
implementation of projects.
With this, Bollido orders
contractors to rush the implementation of projects funded from
current General Appropriations Act (GAA) as well as those funded
from previous years’ GAA i.e. 2016 and 2017 in order to smoothen the
2019 project implementation.
According to Bollido, BDEO
would identify those contractors who have low accomplishments.
“Those contractors who
have already 50%-100% negative slippage will be recommended for
contract termination and will be automatically blacklisted to
participate in any future biddings in Biliran DEO,” Bollido said.
“We need your cooperation
because we are not only be the one that will be affected, but also
you (contractors)”, he added.
BDEO has been allotted
P1.6B for 2018 with a total of 60 projects funded under the General
Appropriation Act (GAA). Out of the 60 projects, 24 are already
completed, 28 are on-going and 8 are Not-Yet-Started (NYS) as of
July 31, 2018 with an overall accomplishment of 42.60%.
Under 2017 project
implementation, out of the 57 projects, BDEO has completed 52 with
still five projects on-going which are being rushed for completion.
