The DPWH Davao City District Engineering Office launched on April 11, 2017, its journey towards ISO 9001:2015 certifica-tion. Among the pioneer ISO certified DEOs in the country, the District Office has been ISO 9001:2008 certified since 2015 and is now working for its upgra-ding to 9001:2015, which will be on October, 2017.
According to District Engineer Wilfredo Aguilar, ISO 9001:2008 was more on involvement while ISO 9001:2015 is focused on engagement or commit-ment. There is now more emphasis on measuring and properly assessing the input and output of processes.
The District office as an infrastructure arm of the government has been ably serving the people, delivering the much-needed infra services to the 1st and 2nd Congressional Districts of Davao City.
Being ISO certified means standardized and globally recognized and accepted mode of operating procedure.
“We renew our vow to commit our unending support to the infrastruc-ture needs of the people of Davao City,” added Aguilar.
