CALBAYOG CITY – The
Department of Public Works and Highways – Samar First District
Engineering Office (SFDEO) participated in the Training on Document
Tracking System (DoTS) for Civil Works from July 9 to 11 at the DPWH
Multi-purpose Hall in Baras, Palo, Leyte.
DoTS is an electronic
routing slip that was developed to monitor the status of documents
in the Department. It tracks down movement of documents, identifies
slow-moving areas, and pinpoints those responsible for the delay in
the procurement and billing processes.
Documents covered by the
DoTS includes but is not limited to plans, program of works,
contracts, change orders, time extensions, RROW payments, and first
or final payments.
Key personnel from the
different sections and units of SFDEO attended the 3-day training.
Throughout the entire training period, participants familiarized
themselves with the different functions of the application,
identified the different types of documents covered by DoTS,
generated reports, transmitted documents from one office to another,
and performed tasks provided in the DoTS-related department orders.
The purpose of this
training is to streamline the Department’s business processes by
resolving problems such as delays in work completion and bottlenecks
in the work flow. Through continuous development of the DoTS, SFDEO
can fast track project completion and be more transparent in its
operations and transactions.
