With having 119 beneficiary barangays ready to receive the services from President Rodrigo Roa Duterte through the Support to Barangay Development Program (SBDP) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG 10), the DILG Project Evaluation Officers (PEO) and Project Development Management Unit (PDMU) Engineers levelled-off means and ways on the preparation of technical and administrative documents of the project implementation.


The levelling off was designed to have a common understanding between the PEOs and engineers on the program and its operationalization to ensure complementary efforts between the PEOs and engineers on the field.


About 308 projects are set to benefit 119 barangays in Region 10. 162 projects of which are from Bukidnon, (22) Misamis Occidental, and (124) Misamis Oriental.


DILG Regional Director Arnel M. Agabe, on his message, highlighted that two of the primary roles of both PEOs and engineers is to ensure standards and compliance to all documentary requirements submitted by the barangay and provide whatever technical assistance the region could give for the SBDP beneficiaries.


“We will be the once to ensure that the 20 million projects of each 119 beneficiary barangays will really go where it is intended.”

During the activity, Development Management Officer (DMO IV) Rumarheveson D. Bacal discussed the project menu checklist which will be used by the PEOs upon checking completeness of documents from the barangay level.

DMO Bacal reminded the participants to guarantee that all forms shall be compliant to standards before endorsing to the Project Technical Assessment Team (PTAT).

“Study the process flow and make sure that you know the standards and documentary requirements, so that by the time it reaches the Regional Office, it is already complete,” he added.

RD Agabe ended his message reminding everyone that while performing their duties, they must protect themselves by following the BIDA brand of Disiplina Muna: B-awal walay mask, I-sanitize ang mga kamot, D-sitansya usa ka metro, ug A-ksyon base sa saktong importmasyon.


As of press time, the levelling off activity is still ongoing and will run from March 8-9, 2021. (DILG 10/PDMU-LGCDD/Merryane Rose S. Bacud)
