DPWH 12 Second Best Region Nationwide

March 5, 2014

The Department of Public Work and Highways XII based in Koronadal City has demonstrated its commitment to pave all national roads by 2016. OIC- Regional Director Reynaldo S. Tamayo confirmed that paving/ concreting of the national primary road in the region is already 80%, and will be completed this year as scheduled. On the other hand, paving of the national secondary road as targeted will be completed on or before the Aquino administration ends.

During the regular staff meeting this February, Regional Director Tamayo announced that DPWH XII was lauded as second best region in the nationwide ranking after garnering a total score of 81.10% based on current and carry- over infrastructure accomplishment. Said recognition was confirmed during the executive meeting in the same month with department secretary Rogelio L. Singson at the Central Office, Manila.

Last year, 2013, the region was number 15 out of the 16 competing regions nationwide. The great leap in accomplishment was credited from the top management to the rank and file employees region wide especially those assigned in the field.

“The challenge to lead our home region towards economic progress has inspired us to realize our thrust in infrastructure development, and because we understand that advancing infrastructure is imperative to the growing economy and tourism.”, RD Tamayo explained in a press interview.

The DPWH tagline, “Daang Matuwid, Kaunlaran ang Hatid” is accordingly aligned to the famous “Tuwid na Daan” advocacy of President Benigno C. Aquino.

In line with this, the department has undergone transformation towards a better government agency preceding accountability, transparency and integrity – the core values of good governance. Anti– corruption efforts aimed to establish trust and gain support from its stakeholders.

Secretary Singson emphasized the department’s mandate to provide safe and quality infrastructure projects and programs following the “right project at the right cost with the right quality, right on time by the right people”. DPWH Information Unit
