Font Size

THE BANGSAMORO Ministry of Public Works (MPW) has launched the Expanded Bangsamoro Advanced Road Mapping and Management (E-BARMM) System to monitor and report on infrastructure projects as part of efforts to improve transparency in the region. E-BARMM “offers extensive data concerning infrastructure projects from its location, completion status as expressed in percentage terms, costing, and funding details of the project,” said MPW Assistant Secretary Danilo Ong, noting that the previous Department of Public Works and Highways-ARMM was the first agency to make use of drone technology as a transparency tool. BARMM Chief Minister Murad Ebrahim, for his part, said, “Aligned with the moral governance that we are advocating, our duty to let our people know where their money is going, the E-BARMM aims to enhance that experience.” An application called MPW-EBARMM is also available for download via Google Play. — Tajallih S.
