Networking brings in more funds for infra projects
Governor Carlos M. Padilla recently announced that the Provincial Engineering Office is facing a big challenge now that more funds for infrastructure projects are pouring in due to Networking which is a component of the Prayers N Faith agenda of the provincial administration.
During the flag-raising ceremony held at the People’s Stage this morning (April 10). Padilla said that, compared to the past years when funds for infrastructure were limited to around P50 million per year, PEO will now find itself “challenged” as the KALSADA program of the national government has granted P150 million for road construction aside from another P108 million from the DILG and P50 million provincial fund, all for 2016.
He said the necessary requirements for the P247 million KALSADA fund for 2017 has already been submitted last February and among 81 qualified provinces in the entire country, Nueva Vizcaya is the first and still only the province which has submitted all documents required.
“I am proud as Governor of this province because even in 2016, we were the first to submit the requirements and reports of project completion. That is why Nueva Vizcaya is somehow the “favorite” of national offices because of satisfactorily complying with the requirements and completing the projects on time,” the Governor said.
These, he said, are aside from a grant of the World Bank equally requiring voluminous paper works which are prone to changes as WB is meticulous in reviewing the documents. “But thanks to the Provincial Engineering Office for performing their job well,” Padilla said.#
