PDAF and Marinduque's Circumferential Road, etc.

Concreting of the national road stretch in front of the Marinduque Airport is currently being undertaken by DPWH.

Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF)is a lump-sum appropriation in the annual General Appropriations Act to fund priority development programs and projects.

“Soft” programs and projects are identified following a shortlist as provided for in the General Appropriations Act such as scholarships, medical assistance to indigent patients, livelihood support programs, water supply, peace and order and financial support to local government units for their priority projects. Small infrastructure projects like roads and bridges, irrigation facilities, potable water systems, school buildings, health facilities, public markets and multi-purpose buildings are also included here.

PDAF funds are small-scale but significant projects and programs in the congressional districts which do not qualify under the mega concerns of the national agencies or are ignored by them for being miniscule. These minor projects bring the government closer to the people and complement the national government’s agenda on the speedy and adequate delivery of basic social services as well as the promotion of infrastructure development.

All congressional districts, such as the Lone District of Marinduque under Congressman Allan Velasco, are entitled to “soft” and “hard” (infrastructure) projects like those identified by the Congressman himself.




This is so because individual members of Congress are deemed more knowledgeable about the needs of their respective constituents as well as the priority given each project.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), also continues to address infrastructure inadequacy in the island-province of Marinduque. Lump sum allocation for Regular Congressional Allocation is earmarked for infrastructure projects for the construction, repair, improvements and rehab of roads and bridges, flood control, water supply system, school buildings, health facilities, public markets and multi-purpose buildings and pavements.





Concreting of the Bancoro-Daykitin section of the Marinduque Circumferential Road is also currently being undertaken.

Many infrastructure projects completed by DPWH Marinduque District Engineering Office have received positive response from the public, particularly in such areas throughout the province of Marinduque where these numerous projects have been undertaken.

Such projects are strictly monitored where testing of fine and coarse aggregates in the case of road projects must pass all quality test requirements under the most recent official standard specifications.
