MANILA, May 15 –- Vice President Noli “Kabayan” de Castro on Saturday initiated the implementation of a Transition Management Plan to ensure the smooth turn-over to the incoming officials in the government housing agencies.

De Castro said this in his capacity as Chairman of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC).

“As early as April, I have already created a Transition Team in the housing sector, led by HUDCC, to formulate and implement a Transition Management Plan,” de Castro.

“We want to ensure that the incoming officials are properly briefed about the housing sector in general as well as each shelter agency in particular to facilitate their assumption of these agencies,” de Castro said.

The Transition Plan includes preparation of reports on each shelter agency, including their mandate and functions, list of plantilla positions and nature of appointment of incumbents, programs and projects, resources, and accomplishments.

“I am also conducting meetings with the key shelter agencies to discuss unfinished and continuing business so that critical issues could be given immediate attention by the new officials,” de Castro added. (PNA) V3/JCA
