DOLE has denied my previous request in #DOLE-745038806648.

Upon requesting the information from OWA and POEA, they have both stated that DOLE has the requested documents. Therefore, I reiterate my request for: 

According to reports senators, and discussion - DOLE has is building/implementing a "new system for submitting contracts by employment agencies".

I would like to obtain information about the budget for this project, including which DOLE department is funding the project, number of DOLE staff in the project, contractors to the project, and expected delivery date.

Dear Ms. Graciadas:

This refers to your query entitled: "New POLO-HK Software/Contract Processing System.

DOLE would like to reiterate that the project, including all administrative processes for its implementation, is still held in abeyance due to the current pandemic.

Please be further advised that as of this moment DOLE cannot provide you with the requested information as the development of the system was held in abeyance because of the current situation. Funds for the development of the project has yet to be allocated or earmarked and public bidding is still to be conducted as soon as the pandemic situation has normalized. Thus releasing any information of document at this time would be premature.

Thank you and keep safe.

Respectfully yours,

Dir. Alice Q. Visperas
FOI Decision Maker
