CARIGARA, Leyte –
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second
District Engineering Office starts bid for the infrastructure
projects for 2019.
An amount of P1.463
billion has been allocated for a total of 54 projects that will be
funded under the General Appropriations Acts (GAA) of 2019.
District Engineer Carlos
Veloso said that with the implementation of the new cash-based
budgeting system next year, the district must prepare projects ahead
of time to hasten implementation.
Veloso added that as of
November this year, an amount of P246.8 million for a total of 17
projects was already bid out.
Among the projects bid out
are the construction of multi-purpose buildings in Brgy. Kalinawan,
Jaro, Leyte, Brgy. Yapad, Pastrana, Leyte and Brgy. Mabini, Mayorga,
Leyte; construction of flood mitigation and drainage system along
Balud Seawall in Capoocan, Leyte, Poblacion Zone 2 Seawall in
Capoocan, Leyte and Daguitan-Marabong River in Brgy. Batug, Dulag,
Leyte; construction of concrete road in Brgy. San Vicente, Tunga,
Leyte and widening Primary Roads Daang Maharlika.
Also bid out are the
rehabilitation of damaged paved road along Palo-Carigara-Ormoc Road,
tertiary roads along Jaro-Dagami-Burauen-La Paz Road, Sta. Fe-Pastrana-Dagami
Road, Dulag-Julita-Burauen Road, Tanauan-Dagami Road and
Jaro-Dagami-Burauen-La Paz Road; and strengthening of Barugohay
Bridge along Palo-Carigara-Ormoc Road and Hibuga Bridge along
Mayorga-La Paz Road.
A cash-based budgeting
system limits contractual obligations and disbursing payments to
goods delivered and services rendered within the fiscal year.
With this, implementing
agencies need to complete their contracts by the end of 2019,
regardless of possible delays. Projects that are "not
implementation-ready" will be removed from the proposed budget.
