SP backs CDO GovNet project of DICT 10

The 20th City Council, presided over by Vice Mayor Bebot Rodriguez, adopted the resolution allowing the traversal of a fiber optic cable along JR Borja Bridge to implement the Cagayan de Oro Government Network (CDO GovNet) project of the Department of Information and Communications Technology – Regional Office 10 (DICT-10).

The CDO GovNet aims to connect to the internet 98 national government agencies and local government unit offices in the city using fiber optic technologies. It is aligned with the Marcos administration’s efforts in enhancing the digital landscape of the Philippine government.

During the meeting of the Committee on Public Works, chaired by Councilor Edgar S. Cabanlas, DICT-10 Representative Michael Andrew E. Buot mentioned that while efforts are currently underway to meet the project’s timeline, a right of way issue along JR Borja poses a major challenge.

In their joint meeting last March 26, DPWH-10, LGU-CDO, and DICT-10 agreed to institutionalize the ownership of the bridge to LGU-CDO, so that the project may be materialized urgently.

The fiber optic cable, having negligible weight, will bring no harm to the structural integrity of the bridge, The Gavel learned.

The legislation was sponsored by the Committees on Public Works and on Laws and Rules, both chaired by Councilor Cabanlas.
