MALAYBALAY CITY (Bukidnon News Dispatch / 10 October 2011) —A five-man technical monitoring group of the Australia Agency for International Development(AusAid) visits Provincial Roads Management Facility (PRMF) projects in Bukidnon from October 10-11.

The group visits Bukidnon to evaluate the implementation of the projects; assess its results and impacts; determine whether learnings are applied; identify issues and changes in system; and make recommendations to further improve capability building, according to Gemma Boreros (PRMF Coordinator). The group just came from Guimaras, and will head for Misamis Oriental after Bukidnon, added Boreros.

The group, composed of Mark Barrett (Infrastructure Adviser of AusAid Canberra, Australia), Sam Chittick (Team Leader Governance Adviser of AusAid Manila), Rosa Antes (Program Officer, AusAid Manila), Dr. Eddie Durotan (Local Governance Specialist), and Ranulfo Garcia (DILG Representative), arrived early morning on October 10 in Cagayan de Oro City and proceeded to newly rehabilitated Jct. Sayre Highway (Damay)- Kalabugao Road, arriving there at 9:30am.

In Maluko, Manolo Fortich, a multisectoral meeting with stakeholders was held, said Clarissa Rendon (PRMF Provincial Facility Officer). An informal focus group discussion served as venue of communication between the technical monitoring group and community leaders and residents wherein feedbacks, questions and answers were exchanged by both, added Rendon.

Rendon also added that later in the afternoon, the group had a series of meetings, among others, with the Provincial Administration– Provincial Economic Enterprise Development and Management Office (PEEDMO), Provincial Engineering Office, and Civil Society Organization.
