Provincial capitol to ignore KALSADA program? Marinduque is on list of provinces for P. 6.5-billion budget on road rehab

Unless ang nasa isip talaga ay pambili pa rin ng boto sa eleksiyon 2016, the corrupt and the corrupted may never listen and just push their luck that far?

"In view of the above, may we respectfully suggest/reiterate our request for the provincial government not to pursue the loan and or for the DBP to defer any action on the loan application as there are plenty of unspent funds at the provincial coffers including other sources of funds, re:  the former PDAF which is now concentrated in Malacanan Palace and can always be tapped  for development projects." 

- Pedrito 'Toto' Nepomuceno, former mayor of Boac, former board member.


LIST: 74 provinces qualify for P. 6.5-billion budget on road rehab

Seventy-four provinces are eligible to propose provincial road projects for rehabilitation, improvement, and upgrading in 2016 through the KALSADA program.

KALSADA, or Konkreto at Ayos na Lansangan at Daan Tungo sa Pangkalahatang Kaunlaran, is the performance-based devolution program recently launched by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) to institutionalize good governance practices for local government units with respect to local road management.

The program will rehabilitate and upgrade provincial road networks and transfer these assets permanently to provincial governments for maintenance.

Under the program, which was approved as part of the the 2016 General Appropriations Act, the national government will spend P6.5 billion ($138.71 million), the DBM said. Funds will be downloaded through the Local Government Support Fund. (READ: DBM allots P6.5B for road projects in 2016)

Of the 81 provinces, only Misamis Oriental, Davao Occidental, and provinces within the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) were not qualified to join the KALSADA program, according to a list obtained from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Budget chief Florencio Abad said qualified provinces have not only met good governance standards and social development benchmarks, but have also established monitoring and evaluation mechanisms. (READ: PH gov't to spend P6.5B to upgrade provincial roads in 2016)

Of the 216,016-kilometer road network in the Philippines, provincial governments maintain about 32,000 km of roads. See the list below to know which provinces are eligible to propose road projects through the KALSADA program:

Abad said the program will also develop the Provincial Road Network Development Plan (PRNDP) for each province and promote the use of an online open data portal as a mechanism for monitoring and evaluating provincial roads.

In partnership with the World Bank and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the government has created a system that uses geo-tagging for reporting on the status of the projects.

Through the Open Roads Portal, the public can check online which roads have been selected for rehabilitation or upgrading and track the progress of the road project from start to completion.

The Open Roads Portal will contain the uploaded provincial road network maps, as well as videos of the conditions of priority roads before, during, and after the implementation of KALSADA. – Rappler
