DPWH HEAD OFFICE, 17 REGIONAL OFFICES, 17 DISTRICT ENGINEERING OFFICES AND UNIFIED PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICES NOW ISO 9001:2008 CERTIFIED

Top  

 
 

Staying true to its commitment to deliver services of international standards – a total of 54 offices of the Department of Public Works and Highways are now certified against the requirements of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards after 35 new offices were awarded certification for the Department’s Quality Management System.

ISO 9001:2008 Certification is an accreditation conducted by external certification bodies to ensure that an organization performs their inter-related processes with international standards.

“As I leave the office in a few days, I am sure that the ISO certification program is considered a success because the Central Office, Regional Offices, the Unified Project Management Offices, and 17 District Engineering Offices are now certified. Unfortunately for some remaining 165 District Engineering Offices, they will still have to work for their certifications. But with a massive 54 accredited Offices, I think we will be able to create the momentum for the whole Department to pursue every single District to be certified as well,” said Secretary Rogelio L. Singson during one of his last engagements as the agency’s head – the Awarding Ceremony held at the DPWH Head Office in Manila.

Included in the DPWH QMS ISO 9001:2008 Registration Expansion are the five (5) Unified Project Management Offices (UPMO), the remaining fifteen (15) Regional Offices, and fifteen (15) District Engineering Offices (DEO) for a total of 35 offices.

In 2015, nineteen (19) DPWH offices were awarded certification including the nine (9) Services and six (6) Bureaus that comprise the Central Office; and two (2) pilot Regional Offices (National Capital Region and Region XI), and two (2) pilot District Engineering Offices.

The ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Management System was audited by a third party auditor, the Anglo Japanese American (AJA) Registrars.

LUCENA BRIDGE CLOSED TO TRAFFIC DUE TO BRIDGE WORKS

Top  

 
 

Iyam Bridge along Lucena Diversion Road in Barangay Domoit, Lucena City, Quezon Province will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic due to reconstruction and widening activities.

In an advisory report to Secretary Rogelio L. Singson from the Department of Public Works and Highways Regione 4-A Director Samson L. Hebra, Iyam Bridge will be closed to traffic effective 7:00 PM of June 22, 2016 to give way for the launching works of girder.

The DPWH advises light vehicles and buses from Manila bound for other parts of Quezon Province, Bicol and Visayas Regions and vice versa to utilize the Old Route of the Manila South Road at the Lucena City proper.

However, trucks and other heavy vehicles will have to wait for the re-opening of bridge to vehicular traffic at 6:00 AM on June 26, 2016 as they will not be allowed to enter the city proper.

Appropriate directional signs have been installed to inform motorists about the bridge closure.

Aware of the impact on vehicular traffic on the closure of Iyam Bridge along Lucena Diversion Road, the DPWH have also coordinated with the City Government of Lucena and Lucena Police Office to provide assistance in managing rerouted traffic at the Old Route.

Secretary Singson has ordered the DPWH Region 4-A to ensure that the contractor R.V. Laborte has the operational and capable equipment specifically cranes as well as manpower to facilitate ahead completion of the installation works for the fabricated girder so that the affected highway can be open to motorists.

DPWH LAUNCHES RIVER FLOW MONITORING AND MANAGEMENT WEBSITE

Top  

 
 

A DPWH public portal that will serve as a source of open data for monitoring and management of river flows in the country will soon be available.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio L. Singson said the DPWH has partnered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) Project to come up with a website that will transform DPWH’s current stream flow data sets into digitized format to be used in incorporating measures to flood mitigation and management.

“For a while now, access to river flow information is limited and has been only available upon request. With the launching the Streamflow Management System (SMS) website, we will have accessible records and maps of river flow stations initially from river gauging stations in Regions 6, 8, 9, 10, and 12,” said Singson.

The SMS website, which will be handled by DPWH Bureau of Design - Water Projects Division (BOD-WPD), will soft launch on June 2, 2016 and is expected to be fully operational by October 2016.

“It will eventually operate on a nationwide scale and will be beneficial in terms of water resource regulation, flood control and management, in localized disaster risk planning, and in coming up with water resources development plans across the country,” added Singson.

The historical information of river flow data is used to generate a discharge measurement that allows engineers, and water resources planners to use this information to design sustainable and resilient infrastructures and to plan for the country’s water resources.

The USAID Be Secure Project was requested by DPWH to provide technical assistance in advancing the data gathering technology through the Streamflow Management System website. The SMS supports the National Hydrologic Data Collection Program and trains the DPWH national and field staff to improve data collection and analysis based on the unique characteristics of river basins in the country.
