Chapter 1 Summary of the Report I.

Introduction

T

he passage of Republic Act 10153, synchronizing the ARMM and national elections

in May 2013 and authorizing His Excellency President Benigno C. Aquino III to appoint Officers-in-Charge (OIC) in the ARMM transition government has ushered in a new hope for the adoption and implementation of comprehensive policy measures and major development interventions that will improve governance and accelerate peace and development efforts in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. The appointment of Hon. Mujiv S. Hataman as OIC – Regional Governor of ARMM carries with it the policy commitment of the President to institute comprehensive governance reforms in the autonomous region. It may be recalled that, in the 2011 State of the Nation Address (SONA), the President pointed out the major issues in the autonomous region such as: political patronage, huge cash advances, ghost teachers, ghost infrastructures, continuing poverty, and electoral fraud. Armed with the trust and confidence of the President and enjoying support from government and non-government institutions and organizations, OIC-Governor Hataman is in a better position to address these issues and carry out genuine reforms and good governance in ARMM guided by the President’s “Matuwid na Daan” advocacy. Consistently, OIC-Regional Governor Mujiv S. Hataman enunciated his key reform agenda focused on three pillars: 1) peace and security, 2) good governance, and 3) socioeconomic development with “open governance” as the overarching strategy. This report dubbed as “Unang 100 Araw ng Bagong Pamunuan ng ARMM” presents the accomplishments of OIC-Regional Governor Mujiv S. Hataman in his First 100 days in Office from December 22, 2011 to April 2, 2012. It consists of accomplishments in the formulation and implementation of regional policies and in the coordination, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of programs, projects and activities in the region.

Highlights of Accomplishments

2.1 Governance Regional Governance The OIC-Regional Governor initiated the desired reform in structure, systems and processes of the ARMM bureaucracy with the theme “Matuwid na Pamamala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”. It started with instituting good housekeeping and reengineering the bureaucracy from the Office of the Regional Governor to the line departments and offices. The message of reform was also communicated clearly to the local government units where their full support and cooperation are being enlisted to realize these reforms. The good housekeeping strategy through cleansing and going back to basics on internal administration of offices has been instituted in the ARMM bureaucracy. This housekeeping measures include recall of detailed staff; appointment of credible and competent ARMM officials; inventory of ARMM personnel; use of ATM in salaries of employees and teachers, use of biometric machine for daily time record; observance of regular flag ceremony and retreat; open hot line of the Regional Governor; conduct of regular Cabinet Meetings; “no cash advance policy”; and remittances to the PHIC, HDMF and GSIS. The Department of Education (DepEd-ARMM) Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) remittance issue has been prioritized by the new administration and it is expected that a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) will be signed between the Regional Governor and the GSIS to normalize ARMM transactions with the GSIS especially for the teachers. With the inventory of ARMM personnel including teachers and with the strict observance of COA rules and regulations, the Autonomous Regional Government was able to save P203.16 million pesos from the “ghost busting” initiative, of which P162.3 million pesos from DepEd and P40.86 million from DPWH. Of the DepEd total amount, P77.0 million pesos is from December 2011 differential, P84.0 million pesos from Personal Salary (PS) and P1.3 million pesos from returned checks. Another 232 ghost employees from RPMA has been discovered. Part of the administrative reform is strengthening the financial management to ensure that accounting rules and regulations are observed properly and that transactions are valid and legitimate. With this measure, the Autonomous Regional Government was able to freeze a total of P77.5 M DepEd transaction intended for schools maintenance and other operating expenses which was supposed to be released to the school divisions long before the new administration assumed office. Considering that line departments and offices are the arm of the Autonomous Regional Government in the implementation of programs and projects, the line departments and offices are now given a broader responsibility of performing their respective mandates and functions. The previous practice of centralized procurement, appointment of employees and teachers are now decentralized to the respective departments and offices. The Special Purpose Fund (SPF) also of the Office of the Regional Governor has been utilized for services and is being used to augment

Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) the resources of line departments and offices which are at the forefront of service delivery. It has been spent within the monthly allocation.

Further, the local government units during the planners’ planning decided to cluster themselves and came-out with 17 LGU clusters. ARMM Executive Order No. 9 series of 2012 was issued creating a Satellite Office in Zamboanga City to strengthen service delivery in the island provinces of Sulu, Tawi-Tawi and Basilan.

The Office on Special Concerns (OSC) has been created also through Executive Order No. 12 to closely monitor the regional government policies and to ensure that government resources are strictly utilized in accordance with their specific purposes and objectives. It has three (3) units such as the Regional Government Action Center (RGAC), the Coordination and Linkage Center (CLC), and the Regional Project Support Coordination Unit (RPSCU). The RGAC has been transferred from the Office of the Attorney-General to the OSC to strengthen its functions and to attend various concerns. The Regional Project Support Coordination Unit has completed site inspections of more than 300 school buildings with the strong participation of various CSOs in the region. The long-time organizational problem of the Department was finally resolved with the strong leadership and intervention of the Regional Governor and Executive Secretary. Given the resolution of problem, the department and its attached agencies have already discharged its powers and functions accordingly. Various Memorandum of Agreements (MOAs) and Memorandum of Understandings (MOUs) have been signed with government agencies, non-government organizations, academes and business sector. The support and commitment of the Official Development Assistance (ODA) partners have also been ensured. At least seven (7) Regional Summits were undertaken in the area of environment, economic, education & health, agriculture & fisheries, youth, Social Contract with Partners and electoral reform. The Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) participation in the facets of governance in the region from planning to monitoring and evaluation has been started.

Chapter 1 Office of the Regional Governor 1.1

Regional Governance

The passage of Republic Act 10153, synchronizing the ARMM and national elections in May 2013 and authorizing His Excellency President Benigno C. Aquino III to appoint Officersin-Charge (OIC) in the ARMM transition government has ushered in a new hope for the adoption and implementation of comprehensive policy measures and major development interventions that will improve governance and accelerate peace and development efforts in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. The appointment of Hon. Mujiv S. Hataman as OIC – Regional Governor of ARMM carries with it the policy commitment of the President to institute comprehensive governance reforms in the autonomous region. It may be recalled that, in the 2011 State of the Nation Address (SONA), the President pointed out the major issues in the autonomous region such as political patronage, huge cash advances, ghost teachers, ghost infrastructures, continuing poverty, and electoral fraud. Armed with the trust and confidence of the President and enjoying support from government and non-government institutions and organizations, OIC-Governor Hataman is in a better position to address these issues and carry out genuine reforms and good governance in ARMM guided by the President’s “Matuwid na Daan” advocacy. Considering the situation, OIC-Regional Governor Mujiv S. Hataman in his oath-taking message clearly made emphasis on the Reform Agenda he will push through specifically on Governance, Peace and Security, and Socio-Economic Reform which is now known as pillars of reform in the autonomous region with “Open Governance” as its overarching strategy. The Governance reform focuses on the ARMM Regional Government, the local government units, and on the electoral process. On the other hand, the Peace and Security reform puts emphasis on the peace and security bodies, loose firearms, and on the human rights. Socio-economic reform covers education, heath, social welfare, environment, agriculture and fisheries, agrarian reform, and infrastructure support. “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) This report called “Unang 100 Araw ng Bagong Pamunuan ng ARMM” contains the key achievements of OIC- Regional Governor Mujiv S. Hataman in his First 100 days in Office from December 22, 2011 to April 2, 2012 in the implementation of his reform agenda with theme of “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”: 1. Good Housekeeping thru Cleansing and Going Back to Basics. Building on the reform agenda in governance founded on the principles of transparency and accountability, this administration re-examined the inefficiencies of the systems and processes of every agency including the Office of the Regional Governor. Specifically, the Autonomous Regional Government has undertaken the following: a) Recalled detailed employees – the detailed employees including school teachers were recalled to their respective mother units in order to strengthen their respective offices and schools. As a result, ARMM employees and teachers are properly accounted for and personnel and employees are performing their tasks in their respective offices and schools. b) New Cabinet Officials – the new ARMM Cabinet members were selected based on merit, fitness, willingness and commitment to serve the ARMM constituency and not on their political or organizational affiliations. c) Inventory of personnel – as means to validate the accusations on “ghost employees” and “ghost teachers” as pointed out in the President’s SONA, the Regional Governor ordered the inventory of ARMM personnel and teachers. An inventory team was created for the purpose. d) ATMization – in relation to the inventory of ARMM personnel and in order to ensure that individual salaries are claimed by respective employees and teachers, the Regional Governor required all offices in the region to use ATM in the payment of salaries. As of the reporting period, all agencies have applied to Land Bank of the Philippines for their respective use of ATM. e) Biometric for DTR – as a means to increase efficiency in every office in the region, all agencies were required to use “biometric machine” in the daily time record (DTR) of employees. As of the reporting period, except for RPDO which is already using a biometric machine way back 2009, all agencies have procured their respective biometric machine. f) Regular flag ceremony and retreat – non-observance of the basic Civil Service rules and regulations by the bureaucracy indicates deeper organizational problem within. Given this context, the new ARMM leadership invokes upon every official and employee of the region to observe the regular Monday flag ceremony at 7:30 AM and flag retreat at 4:45 PM every Friday. g) RG Hotline – feedback and grievance mechanisms are among the effective measures to ensure services are delivered accordingly; officials and employees are performing their “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Page 22


Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) respective roles and responsibilities; and human rights are respected. The OIC-Regional Governor (the highest official in the autonomous region) opened his communication line to every employee and citizen of region to report directly any form of corruption and abuses from public officials and employees. This initiative did not only provide a grievance mechanism but a new hope for a better autonomous region. h) Working Cabinet Members and Officials – Every first Monday of each month is the regular Cabinet Meeting if held inside ORG Complex and every Thursday if held within the ARMM provinces. Since the assumption into office of OIC-Regional Governor Hataman three months ago, three (3) Expanded Cabinet Meetings has been conducted and substantial issues and concerns were discussed and decided. i) No cash advance policy – considering the lessons learned from the past as revealed by COA findings and in order to avoid the same practices, this policy has been instituted, thus, funds are utilized accordingly. j) Remittances – the Regional Governor required all agencies to remit regularly and on time to GSIS, HDMF, PHIC the mandatory obligations of every agency. This policy is closely monitored by the ORG. On the DepEd GSIS concern, there is now an on-going close coordination with the GSIS and a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) will be inked soon. Pending the signing of the MOA, it was agreed in principle that there is no movement or increase of charges and penalties pending reconciliation of data between DepEd-ARMM and GSIS. 2. Stop Payment on Claims – previous contracts and accounts payable were reviewed in order to ensure that these claims are legal, thus, payments to contracts were deferred until such time they are determined valid and legitimate transaction. 3. Freezed P77.5 M DepEd – a total of P77.5 M pesos have been freezed for payment to different school divisions. These funds are supposed to be given to the schools long time ago

Decentralization of power – considering that line departments and offices are the arm of the Autonomous Regional Government in the implementation of programs and projects, the line departments and offices are now given a broader responsibility of performing their respective mandates and functions. The previous practice of centralized procurement, appointment of employees and teachers are now decentralized to the respective departments and offices. Also, the Special Purpose Fund (SPF) of the Office of the Regional Governor is now being used to augment the resources of line departments and offices which are at the forefront of service delivery. The SPF of the Office of the Regional Governor has been utilized fully and it has been spent within the monthly ceiling. 6.

To date, a total of P51.86 M has been released to the LGUs. 8. Steering Committee for Convergence of PPAs – in line with Executive Order No. 43 series of 2010 issued by President Aquino, the Autonomous Regional Government created its Steering Committee on Reform. The Committee is chaired by the Regional Governor and co-chaired by the Executive Secretary with three clusters and a Secretariat under it. The Clusters are aligned to the pillars of reform such as Governance, Peace and Security, and Socio-Economic. Each of the clusters had come-up with convergence programs and projects for the LGUs contained in the ARMM Strategic Action Plan for Governance and Reform (ASAP-GR). 9.

Early this year, the region was confronted by manmade disaster which the Office of the Regional Governor through the Executive Secretary and RRUC successfully resolved.

Relief assistance was also extended by ORG and DSWD-ARMM to the affected families in the said municipality. On loose firearms, the Regional Governor also pushed for the inventory of loose firearms in the region. Pronouncements on this aspect have been made in various occasions and activities in and outside the region. On human rights, the Autonomous Regional Government has closely worked with Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Manila for the institutional arrangements on the establishment of CHR Office in ARMM. A two-day Conference on Human Rights in the ARMM was held in Cotabato City. On strengthening peace structures, preliminary arrangements were done in preparation for the re-organization of the Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) in the ARMM which will be one of the organizations that will be reinforced.

Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) improve responsiveness; and building the capacities of communities in promoting peace through activities that ensure participation and inclusion. In the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), the project is being implemented by the Office of the Regional Governor-ARMM through a Memorandum of Agreement with the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process. The beneficiaries of the project are those displaced by the 2008 MILF-BIAF and GRP-AFP conflict. At the height of the conflict, 105 barangays in 18 municipalities and 52,078 families or 250,715 individuals were forcibly transferred to 136 Meeting with the Payapa at MasaganangPamayanan (PAMANA) ORG Conference evacuation centers in the province Room. Jan 11, 2012 of Maguindanao alone. As a result of the conflict, thousands of houses were reportedly destroyed either by burning or dilapidated due to long abandonment by the owner. Due to funding limitation, the program is being implemented only in five (5) pilot municipalities of Talayan, Datu Anggal, Datu Salibo, Datu Saudi, and Datu Piang, Maguindanao with a total of 11 barangays. The entry-point of the project to these pilot areas is the provision of core shelters to 2,520 families. Cognizant of the fact that there are still IDPs who have not returned to their places of origin and continue to stay at different evacuation centers, the PAMANA-ARMM has prioritized the provision of core shelters to the affected families in the 5 pilot municipalities. A total of 180 units were already constructed and turned over to IDP beneficiaries in 2011. The remaining units are in the process of construction “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana‟t Mapayapa”

Page 72


Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) and are expected to be turned over to its beneficiaries within the early part of 2012. For 2012, it is expected that 2,340 core shelters will be constructed and turned over to IDP beneficiaries in the pilot municipalities. As of April 3, 2012, 889 core shelters were already constructed and ready to be turned-over to IDP beneficiaries. Aside from the construction of core shelters, the program also conducted the following activities: Preparation of USUFRUCT Agreement The sites of the core shelters are all donated by private individuals through the execution of Deeds of Usufruct. The Deeds of Usufruct for the 11 barangays have already been prepared and in the process of notarization. Profiling of Additional Barangays Originally, there were only 9 remaining barangays for the construction of core shelter. However, due to some savings, 2 more barangays will be extended core shelter assistance. The social preparation and profiling have been conducted and as a result, the beneficiaries were determined in consultation with various stakeholders. Conduct of Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) Focus Group Discussion (FGD) is a strategy of the program to meet all stakeholders in one venue and explained the programs goals, objectives, implementation process and related information. For 2012, five FGDs were targeted to be conducted as other FGDs were already conducted in 2011. The five FGDs were already conducted in Barangays Damablac in Talayan, Tee and Butelin in Datu Salibo, Ambadao and Masigay in Datu Piang. “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana‟t Mapayapa”

House plates and Billboards For proper identification of the core shelters constructed, each unit will be provided a house plate. To date, all the house plates for the 2,340 units were already prepared and ready for installation. In addition, four (4) markers are ready for installation. The markers will serve as an identity that the said municipality is a PAMANA community. a) Financial The total budget for the above-enumerated projects and activities is P150.24 million pesos. The bulk of the said amount is for the construction of 2,340 core shelter units amounting to P148.49 million pesos. Of the said amount P22.94 million pesos was already released. b) Difficulties encountered Most of the sites of the core shelters are remote barangays, hence, accessibility to the sites is the primary challenge to the project. c) Impact of the project: “Building PeaceResilient Communities in ARMM” The project will contribute immensely to the early recovery and rehabilitation of the conflictaffected communities in the Province of Maguindanao. Significantly, the return of the IDPs to their original places of origin signals the reign of peace in their communities and that affected IDPs can re-start engaging in productive activities. The PAMANA-ARMM is not only rebuilding core shelters. It is building “Peace-Resilient Communities in ARMM”.

Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) d) Recommendation Due to limited budget, the program was not able to provide the required core shelter units to all displaced persons affected by the 2008 GRP-MILF conflict. It is hereby recommended that the government shall: Provide all the core shelter requirements of the remaining displaced persons; Extend livelihood opportunities to the affected IDP‟s and communities. The Early Recovery and Reconstruction in Central Mindanao (ERRCM) Project funded by European Union in collaboration with UNDP and MINDA is being implemented in the Autonomous Regional Government. The project has reached substantial delivery of early recovery and rehabilitation commodities to 18 rehabilitation communities in Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur. The 18 rehabilitation communities comprised of 12 barangays in Maguindanao and six (6) barangays in Lanao del Sur has a total population of 6,318 families or 31,002 individuals. The sites in Maguindanao are located in the nine (9) municipalities mostly located along the river and lowland areas of the province and three (3) mountainous municipalities in Lanao del Sur affected by the conflict. The project aims to contribute in reducing the vulnerability of at least 54,000 displaced persons, 40 percent of which are women and to strengthen the capacities for local governance on early recovery, response, disaster preparedness including coordination of early recovery efforts. The project includes restoration of community infrastructure and basic services, shelter, access to water, sanitation and health facilities, nutrition, education and psychosocial rehabilitation. As of March 31, 2012; IDPs from the 18 barangays returned with at least 528 families provided with core shelter and 121 partly damaged houses were repaired with water, sanitation and hygiene facilities like 30 Level I water system. To support the daily needs of the families who are also helping in the construction of their own shelter, 538 families were provided with food for work assistance. As part of the early recovery package, the basic needs of the 18 barangays are being addressed to include completion of nine (9) barangay health stations, training on primary health care and reproductive health for the health workers and mothers in eight (8) barangays completed, establishment of Botika ng Barangay (Village Pharmacy) with six (6) units completed and construction of 13 school buildings completed. To support the restoration of livelihood in the communities; 356 families mostly women-led were able to develop a biointensive gardens at their backyards. Eight (8) quick impact livelihood projects were also started and more long-term livelihood projects are to be implemented as the cropping season for corn and rice is approaching.

Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) reaffirm community cohesion which was fragmented by the displacement, training and coaching on peace-based community organizing and advocacy works towards Peace Core Group formation were conducted in nine (9) communities; 31 culture of peace and conflict management training seminar integrating gender sensitivity; and 28 activities in support to local peacebuilding initiatives were also conducted. The role of ARMM government being the Lead Implementing Agency (LIA) for implementation of ERRCM project in the autonomous region among other ODA projects is a manifestation of the regional government‟s capacity to independently manage ODA assistance being implemented in its area of jurisdiction. These accomplishments has been achieved in partnership with 13 local and home-grown NGOs with technical support from the regional offices such as RPDO, TMS, DILG, ODA Office, BPI among others and provincial and municipal offices such as IPHO, DepEd and Office of Provincial Governors and municipal mayors through their PPDOs, MPDCs and DRRM Officers. To face the challenge of unlikely natural disaster that might happen in the coming rainy season, the autonomous regional government through the ERRCM will partner with the provincial government of Maguindanao and traditionally flooded riparian municipalities along the rivers and Liguasan Marsh in charting plans for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management. It includes organizing disaster response teams, training on Basic Life Saving and First Aid”, and installation of actions centers with equipment.

He made his special instruction during an official call of BGen Loreto G Rirao on the 3rd day of January at ORG. It was further enunciated during the ARMM Team visit to the flooded areas of CDO, Iligan City and in Bubong, Lanao del Sur last 06 January 2012 where Gov. Hataman held a brief meeting with the team at Hqs 103rd Bde in Campo Ranao, Marawi City after a media interview. Included in his specific order was the implementation of P-Noy‟s order of “Total Log Ban” in Lanao del Sur by 103rd Bde in Marawi City. To complement further ARMM‟s new government thrusts, Gov. Hataman held a “Consultative Meeting” with all the AFP/PNP major commands of the entire ARMM jurisdiction (EMC,WMC,1ID, 6ID, Army/Marine Bdes, NAVFORWEST, PAF, PNP Area Comds, Regional POs, PPOs, Intel Units, OCD-ARMM, etc). The good governor and his entourage emphasized, among others, Peace, Security and Development initiatives thru good governance and transparent administration in the implementation of plans and programs. He deputized the AFP/PNP to help ARMM leadership to monitor projects and ensure corruption-free implementation of concerned agencies/contractors. Gov. Hataman also enlisted OCD for the immediate organization of the ARMM DRRM Council & OPCEN; operationalize the Regional DRRM Office; and prepare DRRM plans and “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana‟t Mapayapa”

All ABC Presidents were included for the organization of DRRMCs at the barangay levels. Also attending the orientation were selected 1st Responders (103rd Inf Bde, BFP, PNP & Reservists).

3.3 HEALTH AND NUTRITION The existing health programs and health services in ARMM have limited reach and coverage and a big proportion of the population has poor access to the available health services. There is poor health-seeking behaviour among target population groups due to low awareness, cultural beliefs and practices, geographic isolation, difficult transportation and extreme poverty. Despite the fact that of the 2,475 barangays in the region, only 445 or 18 percent have Barangay Health Stations (BHS), health workers/front-liners were able to provide health services to remote barangays with the aid of the MECA Project or Midwife in Every Community in ARMM. 1. Governance To improve the delivery of health services, deployment of personnel especially in far flung areas were undertaken. To date, 7 doctors were assigned in doctor-less areas, 138 nurses and 300 midwives were assigned in the different barangays of the region.

The medical mission (Kasama mo si Secretary Project) was conducted in the island provinces. Likewise, provision of assorted Basic Emergency Obstetric Care (BemONC) equipment to hospitals and Rural Health Units (RHUs) in the ARMM was done.

and Productivity Commission (NWPC) which is the Two-Tiered Wage System for adoption and implementation by the different Regional Tripartite Wages Productivity Boards in their respective regions. This new wage system consists of a mandatory regional floor wage with the Family Poverty Threshold as reference data for the first tier and a voluntary productivity or performance based system for wages above the floor wage as the second tier. The Two-Tiered Wage System is an approach which is believed to minimize if not prevent the unintended results brought about by the current wage fixing system such as displacement of workers, pressure on wage distortion, and even closure of business operations. Hence, this new approach was conceptualized by NWPC to protect the most valuable sector of labor, the unskilled as well as the new entrant-workers. Considering that the Workers Sector in the region is also affected by the unintended results of the current wage system the Board chaired by the DOLE-ARMM Regional Secretary Muslimin A. Jakilan accepted the invitation of NWPC to participate in the Area Based Orientation and Workshop on Two-Tiered Wage System held on March 7-8, 2012 in Apo View Hotel, Davao City.

“Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Page 127


Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report)

The forum was conducted on March 21, 2012 at the Shariff Kabunsuan Cultural Complex. Key personalities invited to the forum are the following: Assistant Secretary Jehanne Mutin Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Resource Person: Role of Women in Peace Building

Assistant Secretary Nariman Ambolodto DILG-Central Office

Ms. Amina RasulBernardo Lead Convenor, Philippine Council for Islam and Democracy Resource Person: Role of Women in Sustainable Development

Ust. Nurol Am Resource Person: Role of Women in Good Governance/ Rights and Duties of Women in Islam

The most touching insight drawn from the discussion and presentation of the resource persons was given by Amina Rasul. Accordingly, it is hypocrisy to talk about the role of women in sustainable development when the reality is that majority of Muslim women is languishing in poverty. Before they can be given respective role in sustaining development in the region, they have to be, first of all, be assisted in terms of livelihood, because they cannot be expected to contribute to sustaining development in the region when they cannot even sustain the needs of their families. 3) OTHER SIGNIFICANT ACTIVITIES The Chairperson of the RCBW served as Technical Support to the OIC Regional Vice Governor during the 2nd Formal Meeting of the Ad Hoc High Level Group on the Tripartite Implementation Review of the 1996 Final Peace Agreement held on March 1-3, 2012 in Bandung, Indonesia. “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Conduct of the Value Chain Analysis Workshop

Value Chain approach is one of the methodologies to assess a system or procedure to The participants during the workshop into 5 sectors, namely: rubber, coffee, improve the quality of a seaweeds, coconut, and livestock (goat) product. The products pass through all activities of the chain in order to gain some value. The value chain promotion approach is a good development approach to come up with products or services for promotion that will address the overall goal of the society which is poverty alleviation. The approach provides criteria for implementing value chain promotion as a development project strategy. It can either be a standalone project, or a component in a development program that also pursues other approaches. Value chain promotion fosters economic growth – as a necessary precondition for incomes to rise – by making sure that the additional income generated actually benefits poverty groups. This can be achieved by strengthening the way that commercial product markets relevant for the poor function, by improving their access to these markets, and or by influencing the distributive outcome of market processes. Value chain promotion harnesses market forces to achieve development goals. It is oriented towards business opportunities and consciously builds on the existing or emerging economic potential of the poor. Therefore, value chain promotion is essentially a development approach. It can be combined with other development approaches. It is not a substitute for other strategies. Thus, DTI-ARMM conducted the ARMM SME Core Group Value Chain Workshop on March 15-17, 2012 at Grand Men Seng Hotel, Davao City. The training expected to generate the following benefits (1) to develop and strengthen capabilities of members and gather programs, activities and projects (PAPs) inputs possible for inclusion to ARMM Economic Cluster SME Core Action Plan, (2) the participants are expected to renew their commitments to the Economic Cluster SME Core activities for 2012 and onward, (3) to come up an integrated value chain analysis of the identified priority products such as seaweeds, coffee, rubber and other product champion of ARMM region, (4) to come up with an integrated and workable 2012 ARMM SME Core Group Action Plan, and (5) to strengthen the ARMM Economic Cluster SME Core Group.

5.2 Transportation and Communication Hon. Mujiv S. Hataman, Regional Governor of ARMM has effectively handled the issue over the leadership of DOTC-ARMM and has concluded this decade long controversy, with justice to everyone. With the conclusion of the organizational conflict of the Department, the following are the highlights of accomplishments: 1. Reconciliation “Kanduli” Cognizant of the blemished relationship between the Director IV and the employees who used to attach their loyalty to the Regional Secretary which is, according to CSC rulings and the DBM, a “non-existent” position in DOTC-ARMM, the leadership of Director Pama Dimapanat, with directives from the Regional Governor, set a peaceful and unified mode in the department. The Kanduli is a traditional conflict resolution method that effectively settled the much-talkedabout dispute and rectified the distorted relationship among the officials and the ranks of DOTC-ARMM. Through this activity, the parties to the controversial grievances were given the opportunity to forgive and respect each other’s sentiments and finally, with the highest wisdom of the Regional Governor, resolved the discontentment to start a renewed commitment and loyalty to service. That gesture was a great achievement that previous administrations failed to consider if at all to improve the performance of the department in the interest of public service. 2. Accountable Forms from National Offices such as: LTFRB, LTO Now Issued by DOTC-ARMM Following the confirmation of the Regional Governor that the Dir. Dimapanat is the rightful head of DOTC-ARMM and being a career official, the National Offices of DOTC and the sectoral and attached agencies recognized his authority and has been entrusted with the accountable forms which were formerly restricted to ARMM because of the controversy in the “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Page 166


Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) leadership and because sectoral offices were headed by non-accountable, non-permanent and non-organic employees. DOTC-ARMM or its attached agencies can fully perform the function of the office similar to what other regions can perform. 3. Renovation of DOTC Building, Return of all Offices of Sectoral and Attached Agencies to DOTC NTC Building 4. Updated all Remittances of Loans, GSIS, PAG-IBIG, 201 File of DOTC Personnel 5. “Iskalawag-Free” Routes With the cooperation of the law enforcement agencies, the local government units and concerned citizens, DOTC-ARMM has strengthened the watch against illegal operators and unauthorized operations of unscrupulous fake enforces who moonlighting as DOTC-ARMM commissioned, deputized or contingents. DOTC-ARMM has dispatched monitoring teams on major roads and highways as well as on strategic water points to investigate, eliminate and prevent illegal or unauthorized operations by non-DOTC-ARMM employees. 6. Strengthened Cooperation with National Offices and the Law Enforcement Agencies The various national agencies and offices (DOTC, LTO, LTFRB, NTC, MARINA) reinforced the DOTC-ARMM in terms of organizational viability by expressions of commitment of support to the leadership of Dir. Dimapanat. Central Offices have pledged to assist in the training and capacity building activities. 7. Request for New Positions which is Acknowledged by the DBM As part of the strategy to efficiently improve the performance and services of the Department, it has made a very doable proposal and submitted a request for new positions to augment the current structure. The DBM has positively acknowledged the request and recognized the exigent need to approve the request in order to effectively sustain the accomplishments of DOTC-ARMM in terms of revenue generation and delivery of this vital service.

5.3 Regional Ports Management RPMA is an income generating agency, it imposes charges, fees and other collections on its port services to sustain its operation in providing better and well equipped services and contributes to the coffers of the regional government to support regional socio-economic development plans. The newly appointed General Manager has made all the study needed to bring about the great leap by which the RPMA should be redirected. Among the first to be addressed are the immediate concerns vital to management operation. From its assumption to office last February 1, 2011 a Technical Working Group (TWG) was created to conduct further analysis on personnel, financial and legal status of the office and plan for the conduct of reform measures. The TWG initial report revealed a total of 232 ghost employees in the RPMA. It was also reported that two major ports were removed from the control of RPMA and transferred to the administrative control of another body and an LGU through signing of Memorandum of Agreement. The RPMA-ARMM has supervised successfully the complete construction of modern passenger terminal building in the port of Lamitan, as well as the near completion of the construction of Sibuto Municipal Port in Tawi-Tawi and the port of Pata in Sulu. Seminars cum workshops were attended by the different PMO’s, TMO’s, CHO’s regarding “Port Supervising Development Course” dated February 29-March 3, 2012 in General Santos City and workshop on Value Chain Analysis held at Grand Menseng Hotel on March 15-17, 2012. Personnel Administration The new management has effectively purged all the ghost employees of the RPMA Regional Office and port/ terminal offices and save needed resources for viable programs. For Implementation 1. Installation of CCTV cameras and baggage x-ray security machines on all RPMA major ports for safety of the riding public and port users against attack from terrorism. It will also be used for monitoring of port operations and crime deterrent capability of the ports. 2. Installation of On-line Accounting and Auditing System for all major income generation ports. “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Page 168


Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report) 3. The issuance of centralized official receipts of RPMA to increase and monitor operation and revenues. 4. The submission of budgetary requirements for RPMA’s annual operational needs to the DBM thru the RLA and Office of the Regional Governor. 5.

Hotline numbers of RPMA for issues and concerns 8. RPMA regional guidelines on Port Tariff and other fees 9. Website completion and operationalization 10. GSIS remittances and other deductibles Revenues The Regional Ports Management Authority has monthly revenue of 320 thousand pesos or less at the average in which the new leadership intends to increase the target income as follows: March 2012 Up to 100% April 2012 Up to 150% May 2012 Up to200% The technical working group helped in the facilitation of the transitional phase by promoting accountability through the centralization of accounts and auditing system of port’s financial transactions, uniformity of official receipts, posting of standard port tariffs and coordinated computerized remittances within the RPMA-ARMM as well as the rationalization of the staffing pattern and upgrading of personnel compensations based on the 2011 standard salary grading system as well as the proposed ARMM transition and investment support plan which is funded by the lead agency (DOTC) that was also included in the plans and programs of the RPMA. Difficulties Encountered a) The absence of credible and Centralized Accounting System b) The MOA on Minimum Port remittance c) The MOA on Cargo handler contractors d) The MOA on Lamitan and Polloc Port e) Absence of uniform receipts and tickets f) Absence of inventory of port facilities g) Delayed and under remitted revenues h) Many casuals/contractual hired on political accommodations. Impact of the Reform Programs “Matuwid na Pamamahala Tungo sa ARMM na Masagana’t Mapayapa”

Page 169


Ang Unang Daan Tungo sa Masagana’t Mapayapang ARMM (The First 100 Days Report)

With the realization of the plan implementation of the reform programs, the RPMA will be financially self sufficient and sustainable. Further, as designed it will be performing its role as a major collecting agency of the DOTC-ARMM. In addition to this, the proposed ARMM transition and investment support plans presently funded by the lead agency (DOTC National) and currently being monitored by the assigned personnel will be realized with efficiency as desired. The utilization of uniform and universal RPMA official receipts on all ports will materialize efficiency in revenue collections which will pave the way to a more centralized accountability of funds as well as the full remittance of the RPMA ports to the regional government. Recommendations The monitoring and evaluation specifically on all ports in the Regional Ports Management Authority – ARMM must be strictly implemented in coherence with the MOAs passed and approved by the AUTHORITY to ensure that all resources and funding are properly utilized and allotted.
