DPWH-12 generates P705-M savings through competitive project bidding

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, July 1 (PNA) -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has generated around P705 million in savings in the implementation of various infrastructure this year in parts of the region.

Reynaldo Tamayo, DPWH Region 12 director, said such savings were the result of their strict adherence to the transparency principle in all processes involved in terms of project implementation.

He specifically cited the conduct of competitive bidding as set in Republic Act 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act.

“We we’re able to reduce the actual cost of the projects from their approved budgets because of competitive and transparent bidding,” Tamayo said in a press conference.

Through competitive bidding, he said they were able to eliminate “fixings” in the awarding of the projects to contractors.

Aside from the transparent bidding process, Tamayo said they also generated some savings through the proper designing and planning of the projects.

The DPWH central office had approved around P9.2 billion worth of projects, mostly road expansion and upgrading, for the region this year.

As of Tuesday, the official said they already accomplished 32.7 percent of the 514 projects that were lined up for implementation in the area this year.

Tamayo said they returned last Monday, June 29, their savings this year to the Department of Budget and Management.

But he said they are currently preparing some projects proposals for the possible realignment of the returned funds.

Last year, he said they were able to implement a number of additional projects out of the P200-million savings that they generated.

In 2013, the agency accumulated some P33.46 million in savings from the implementation of various tourism road projects in the region.

The DPWH-12 had allocated some P340.89 million for the implementation of five tourism road projects under its 2013 infrastructure program.

“Promoting the right project at the right cost, with the right quality and right-on-time implementation is always the policy (of DPWH-12),” Tamayo said.

Along with the adoption of such policy, he said they enforced reforms in the bidding process and implementation of the projects in line with the principle of good governance and the anti-corruption efforts of the national government.

These reforms are also in consonance with the “tuwid na daan” advocacy of President Benigno S. Aquino III, he added.(PNA)
