Problems such as allotments, delays in the start and completion and submission of reports of project and those encountered in the process of implementation, like additional demands of farmers in the area covered were discussed and addressed. In the course of the meeting, ARD Gironella advised the DPWH coordinators in the District Offices to closely coordinate with DAR office and to establish good working relationship with their DAR counterparts for speedy resolution of problems. She also requested the said office through their representative Engr. Andig, to make representations in their Central Office of matters beyond the regional levels. ARD Gironella cited the case of Sagal-ang Manubiray Farm to Market Road in Kalingan, wherein the resident COA refuse to sign contract documents unless the amount of the contract is fully released. This problem as explained by ARD Gironella delays implementation if the requirement of COA is not satisfied. She specifically requested, the release of supervision cost and taxes together with project funds. Engr. Andig on the other hand, promised to bring the matter to the higher echelon of DAR to make these programs of the government successful. Another matter emphasized by ARD Gironella is on the importance of soil exploration on bridge projects because these data would serve as basis in the preparation of plans. In the end, both parties reached an agreement and resolution to issues raised. The DPWH and DAR recognizes the necessity of involving the Local Government Units whenever a project is on going as their support is vital in the speedy realization of our programs.
