.PAGADIAN CITY (PIA) - The Regionion-9 office of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-9) Efficiency and Integrity Board (EIB), headed by Director Sisinio Cano, agreed to tap the assistance of the Tripartite Industrial Peace Council (TIPC) in the monitoring of DOLE implemented livelihood projects in the Zamboanga Peninsula.
This was the off-shoot of the EIB meeting held recently at the DOLE-9 office in Zamboanga City.
EIB is a tripartite body created by virtue of Department Order No. 109, issued by DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz.
It is tasked primarily to serve as watchdog in monitoring cases involving violations of anti-graft and corruption practices and promotion of efficiency and integrity in the regional office and its provincial and field offices, among others.
The idea of tapping the services of TIPC came about during the EIB review of DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP) with the active participation of its members that include heads of the DOLE Family of Agencies and private sector representatives.
