CARIGARA, Leyte –
The Department of Public Works and Highways Leyte Second District
Engineering Office strengthens partnership with contractors through
a recent pre-construction conference.
According to District
Engineer Gerald Pacanan, the start of the regular coordination
meeting is an initial step to a closer partnership between DPWH and
“The DPWH and contractors
are partners. Without you, we cannot execute our projects, and
without us, you will have no projects. So, we are here to help each
other,” expressed Pacanan.
With the new
administration, he stated that it is high time to evaluate,
supervise inventory and expedite project implementation.
“Let us do away with time
suspension. However, if we cannot avoid that, let us prepare the
necessary documentation at the earliest possible time,” he added.
He mandated the Project
Engineers to settle concerns and have close coordination with the
contractors. At the same, the district office must also conduct
strict monitoring on projects. Pacanan further instructed to
prioritize public safety by providing early warning signs on the
on-going projects to avoid any untoward incidents.
He then emphasized that
the office must adhere with the quality policy of the department
which is “to implement the right projects at the right cost with the
right quality delivered right on time by the right people”.
