LINGAYEN – An executive of the District Engineering Office (DEO) based here was not impressed by the Project Monitoring Division of the Bureau of Construction of the Department of Public Works & Highway.
The official,  who asked for anonymity, said the inclusion of the two DEOs in Pangasinan in the Numbers 6 and 7 places were not fair.
In that ranking the 1st District Engineering Office under District Engineering Smile R. Fermin snatched 5th Place with a weighted rating of 92.61% while 4th District Engineering Office under District Engineer Marieta B. Mendoza garnered the 7th place with a weighted rating of 92.41%.
The huge Pangasinan province has been divided into four DEOs where the 5th and 4th Engineering Offices supervise projects implementation in the First and Third Congressional Districts, respectively. The 2nd DEO handles the 2nd and 4th Congressional Districts while the 3rd supervises project implementation in the 5th and 6th Congressional Districts.

The ratings, according to the Project Monitoring Division, were based on their implementation of their projects, ensuring road safety within their areas of jurisdiction, and over-all management and leadership performance of the District Engineers.
DPWH implements infrastructure projects like road widening and maintenance of national highways, post-harvest facilities, school buildings, health centers, multipurpose gyms, health centers, and flood control projects.
The basis of the contest was that 80 percent of all the projects awarded last year to all DEOs in Luzon should be accomplished by December 2016.
“How could the 2nd and the 3rd Engineering Districts compete since we each have two congressional districts while the 1st and the 4th handle only each congressional district,” the executive deplored.
He cited that the 1st and 4th DEOs have 160 projects while the two districts have only 60 projects each to boot.
“They could easily finish their projects while we struggled to finish ours,” he added.
