The Department of Public Works and Highways Leyte Fourth District Engineering Office transferred fifty seven (57) unserviceable Information Technology equipment to Technical Education and Skills Development Authority - Ormoc City as part of its commitment to community service and proper waste disposal initiatives.
Equipment donated are computer monitors, printers, CPU, power supply, and copier machines that are no longer of use to DPWH.
The disposal of unserviceable equipment and property of the Department are fully accounted as reflected in the inspection and verification report conducted by DPWH-Regional Office VIII Disposal Committee to ensure that the mode of disposal adheres to pertinent government issued guidelines.
Instead of merely disposing this equipment to waste facilities, they were given without cost to TESDA so that it could be utilized for computer repair training and other purposes.
TESDA targets to salvage the donated equipment for the study and practical workshops of students in their Electronics and IT program.
The turn-over of equipment was administered by DPWH District Engineer Lino Francisco C. Gonzalez and TESDA OIC-Center Administrator Mr. Jemuel S. Tauy and witnessed by a representative from Commission on Audit and the TESDA students.
The activity is part of DPWH’s globalized efforts to safeguard the environment through sustainable measures.
