The technical working group of the Regional Project Monitoring Committee (RPMC) IX, a committee under the Regional Development Council IX, visited nine (9) projects in Zamboanga del Norte on May 16-19, 2011. Six of the projects are implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and three by the Department of Health (DOH).
The three DOH projects visited by the team were the Construction of the Constantino Soriano Sr. Memorial Hospital in Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte costing P 35.0 million, Upgrading/ Renovation/ Improvement of the Jose Rizal Memorial Hospital in Dapitan City, amounting to almost P10.0 million, and the Construction/Improvement of Building at the Pinan District Hospital costing some P5.0 million.
The DPWH projects that were monitored consist of the following: Road Gravelling and Widening of the Zamboanga West Coast Road, Gutalac-Baliguian section amounting to P 668 million; Road Upgrading (gravel to concrete) of the Sindangan-Siayan-Dumingag-Mahayag Road amounting to almost P15.8 million; and the Construction of Multi-purpose Pavement Phase I and II at the Jose Rizal Memorial State University Complex amounting to about P9.6 million and P19.3 million respectively, Completion of the Multi-purpose Pavement at the Jose Rizal Memorial State University Complex amounting to some P19.3 million, Construction of Multi-purpose building Phase II and III at the Jose Rizal Memorial State University Complex amounting to about P19.2 each phase
respectively. Other projects that were visited include the Concreting of the Dapitan-Dakak Road amounting to P58.0 million; Rehabilitation/Improvement of Dipolog-Punta-Dansullan-Sergio Osmena Road (Pob. Alto-San Juan Section) amounting to P161.8 million; and the Construction of Seawall along the Coastal Area of Poblacion Manukan to Manukan River amounting to P47.7 million
Except for a few concerns, the projects monitored by the RPMC team especially those by DPWH were implemented according to plan. For DOH-implemented projects, the team noted its observations and recommendations, among which are additional manpower to address limited personnel, need for consultation among end-users starting at planning stage, and the need to keep an up-to-date record on all construction activities in order to have a timely and reliable report on the project accomplishments.
After conducting monitoring activities, the team forwards its findings to the agencies concerned for their information and appropriate action.
