Kalinga project watchdog to capacitate barangay monitors

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, Nov. 19 (PIA) -- The provincial project monitoring committee (PPMC) approved during their 3rd Quarter meeting to capacitate through training workshop barangay project watchdogs so that they can become the frontline inspectorate teams on projects implemented in their respective areas.


Flordeliza Moldero, provincial planning and development coordinator, said the workshop training set on November 23 also aims to provide barangay monitors basic tools on how to conduct monitoring even without the technical knowhow.

This is in line with the overall capacitation of Mamamayang Ayaw Sa Anomalya at Mamamayang Ayaw Sa Iligal na Droga or MASA MASID social facilitators as required under DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2017-112 mandating the conduct of training activities and skills enhancement particularly to MASA teams.

The provincial government has trained last month PPMC members and other stakeholders on how to effectively and efficiently monitor projects including reporting system.

In a related development, PPMC also agreed during their meeting to conduct in December this year a forum among local contractors, project implementers, and beneficiaries to settle issues and concerns affecting the implementation of projects resulting to anomalous, poor quality and delayed completion of projects.

Among the findings of the PPMC that affect project implementation are the irregular sub-contracting of projects to sub-contractors lacking on equipment and manpower causing delay and poor quality of projects; awarding of many projects to one contractor which it cannot handle causing 2-digit negative slippages; sub-standard make of projects due to economized use, reduced sizes, and lessened volume of materials, among others.
