Ms. Hora acknowledged the accomplishments and active partnership of both the City Government and MFI with the HEALTH Plus project implementation, however, this is greatly affected by some gaps and challenges that have arisen as a result of sudden surge of transactions of HPSiS on the previous year.35514130_1932673816784202_8982304168299462656_nShe stated that DJPRH was not yet able to process the payment for 2018 receivables of HPSiS pending the crafting and approval of an ordinance on the proper utilization of Revolving Fund for such purpose.  Hon. Nu?ez committed to fastrack the crafting and approval of such ordinance as this will be passed and approved under her committee. Hon. Rivera, on the other hand, expressed his concern on the decreasing PHIC’s NBB compliance rate of DJPRH. He instructed Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) Chairperson and City Budget Officer, Mr. John Quimosing to also fastrack processing of procurement as this is the major factor for the stock-outs and unavailability of drugs, medicines and supplies at the hospital pharmacy level which further led to decreased NBB rate. He added to also fastrack payment for Mahintana as this may also cause stock-outs at HPSiS level.
