RAY-DILG conducts Project Management and Construction Supervision Consultative Workshop in Boracay, Calbayog City, Cebu City, Iloilo City and Roxas City

The Recovery Assistance on Yolanda (RAY):DILG Fund, the Office of the Project Development Sevices (OPDS) in partnership with the DILG Regional Offices conducted separate Project Management and Construction Supervision Consultative – Workshops all throughout the month of August 2014.

The series of capacity building workshops were held in Calbayog City, Eastern Samar last August 6-8; Boracay, Aklan last August 13-15; Iloilo City last August 18-20; Roxas City, Capiz last August 27-29; and Cebu City last August 12-14 and 27-29, 2014.

The 3-day workshop which was participated by the Municipal Engineers, Municipal Accountants, Municipal Local Government Operations Officer (MLGOO) and DILG Field Officers enabled them to identify the policies for the implementation of RAY:DILG Fund projects. The workshop also enriched their knowledge and skills on Procurement Law (RA 9418), Construction Supervision and Management, and Fund Management and Liquidation.

The highlight of the workshop was the introduction of the RAY:DILG Project Performance Monitoring System (PPMS) which is integrated in the RAY:DILG Fund Website. It is a computer-based system that will enable the DILG Field Officers to submit electronic reports on project status to the DILG Central Office on time. The participants had hands-on experience with the RAY-DILG Website when they registered, entered the database of their projects and navigated the features of the website.

The Project At Risk (PAR) Monitoring System developed by the Philippines-Australian Human Resource and Organizational Development Facility (PAHRODF) was also presented in the workshop. The system indicates the risk level or alert status of the projects based on the pre-recognized indicators. The pilot test of the PAR system is introduced to RAY:DILG Fund and will be applied to other OPDS projects in the future.

The recently concluded workshops focused on the project implementation of damaged municipal facilities under the First Batch of RAY:DILG Fund Projects. Once the Second Batch of projects is approved, a new batch of workshops will be conducted to the Super Typhoon Yolanda affected areas in preparation for the project implementation of the damaged barangay facilities.
