DPWH Region IX Regional Director Mr. Jorge U. Sebastian, Jr., CESO III, receives the 2017 Outstanding CEO award from CESB ED Atty. Maria Anthonette C. Velasco-Allones, CESO I.

The lone recipient of the 4th quarter for 2017 CES Outstanding Cost Effective Officer (CEO), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Region IX Regional Director Jorge U. Sebastian, Jr., CESO III, was recognized during the inaugural session of the 2018 CES Leadership Conclave on February 22, 2018 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Manila.

One of his outstanding accomplishments include the turn-over of ninety-two (92) classrooms to the Department of Education (DepEd) without additional cost from the government, which resulted in an estimated savings amounting to 64 million pesos or 700,000 per classroom.

The said accomplishment was achieved by ensuring that the bunkhouses used by field personnel are designed and constructed using the Standard DepEd 1-classroom, thereby eliminating wastage from the construction of temporary shelters, which were eventually dismantled and junked. The program likewise ensured good living condition of field personnel.
