eclection but they were selected by IP groups’ customary services.

as a challenge – how to influence the LGUs to prepare plans and use as basis for their
expenditure. Also, include as strategic intervention the institutionalization on the
mandatory use of the PHILGEPS in government procurement.

• In response, Dir. Purita Licas of PIA informed Mr. Antolin that the suggestion was already
included in the REMs of DBM and BLGF.

Mr. Marcelo Dumlao suggests for the
hospital and health facilities, 3)
inclusion of a statement towards attaining attainment of MDG commitment which is
universal health care health related.

• RD Milagros Rimando explained that the REMs are agency targets to support the RDP. If
there are changes, the agency should see to it that the changes made by the group were
incorporated in the REM. The Secretariat was tasked to write RLAs for them to integrate
the changes by the group.

• RD Rimando commented that the concern on the campaign against black sand mining,
which resulted to the intrusion of saltwater, is too contentious, knowing that there are
provincial governments supporting this. In view of this, the secretariat will find a way on
how to state this concern in the RDP.

• On the K+12 program, Ms. Perla


Visorro, suggested to ensure quality
education in the present system before going
into that program. This also include
classroom and instructional materials,
because there are still many schools that do
not have enough classrooms,. She likewise
suggested to have a program for the
Ms. Perla Visorro comments on the K+12 improvement of nutritional status of IPs
program of the Department of Education especially the Agtas children.

• In addition, Dr. Antonio P. Pascual of CHED, explained that the K+12 program will
provide children aging 5 to be in the kindergarten, while the elementary and high school
will have additional two years. This program is an offshoot of the EFA program, which will
enhance the curriculum and the opportunities for employment of graduates.

• Mr. Artemio Antolin noticed that that in


the DOH REM, there were years without
targets, e.g. underweight children. He
suggested that there should be targets
within the 6 year period and include the
objectives.

Dr. Artemio Antolin suggests for the inclusion of


the DOH targets

• Mr. Dumlao of DOH explained that there was no target for 2011 because, that MDG
targets were already achieved.

• Related to the DSWD program on 4Ps, conditional fund transfer, she suggested to rethink
strategies for health and education, because it is encouraging corruption. She suggested
to modify the scheme, that the amount should be used for economic enterprises rather
than to buy uniform and others.

• RD Milagros Rimando informed the body that there are certain things which cannot be
addressed by the RDP like 4Ps, K+12 and dredging. To respond to the issues raised,
RD Rimando mentioned that the 4Ps and K+12, will be calendared in the SDC so that any
recommendation can be elevated in the national SDC including dredging.

• On the missing targets of DOH, the Secretariat will request the DOH to place targets for
2011 to 2016, because these will be used in the budget review.

4.3 On Economy

• Ms. Perla Visorro suggested that the DA encourage farmers to promote upland rice in
Cagayan Valley.

order to establish an international standard.

regulation of small scale mining.
