Bohol Eyes National Award

News Archive - After being adjudged the Best Provincial Peace and Order Council in the regional level, the Bohol Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) is now among the finalists for the national competitions.

A team of national evaluators composed of Commissioner Linda L. Malenab Ornilla of the National Police Commission, senior state prosecutor Purita Deynata of the Dept. of Justice, Atty. Allan Montano of the Federation of Free Workers and Dir. Verulo Mapanao of the Napolcom Legal Affairs Service were in Bohol since Sunday until yesterday to conduct on-the-spot inspections and validate the report of the Bohol PPOC for 2002.

During a special meeting of the PPOC, which Gov. Erico B. Aumentado called for the purpose, the council presented to the evaluators its accomplishments for 2002, the year under review.

The meeting also gave the evaluators and opportunity to be clarified on some important aspects of the PPOC that were not discussed in the report submitted as part of the provincial government's entry to the competition.

Montano particularly commended the provincial government for creating the Bohol Poverty Reduction and Management Office, and said that, where it is possible, he would recommend to other local government units to replicate the program.

The province's poverty reduction program provides for the economic component of the campaign to maintain peace and order, and has built the confidence of the people in government, the governor said. - 2004 Bohol Chronicle

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
  As such, Aumentado had explained, Congress might not be able to approve on time the calendar year 2010 General Appropriations Act (GAA), giving the country no other choice but to operate on a reenacted budget.
  A reenacted budget would jeopardize the airport project, the governor pointed out, because the 2009 budget carries only P307.5 million for the airport. The balance of the amount that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo earlier approved for DOTC to come up with stands at P690,971,398 for a total allocation needed of P998,471,398.
