IN RE: #PCOO-060551068720

Requested from PCOO by Rey Joseph Nieto at 09:55 PM on Mar 13, 2018.
Purpose: Research
Date of Coverage: 10/27/2017 - 03/13/2018
Tracking no: #PCOO-320980378941

Rey Joseph 09:55 PM, Mar 13, 2018

Hi, 

I have received a reply to the eFoI request entitled "List of accomplished projects of Usec. Lorraine Badoy" (#PCOO-060551068720) and I checked the eFoI reply for completeness and responsivess.

What I saw, however, are mostly motherhood statements that do not really sufficiently address the eFoI request.

In that respect, may I request for the following documents:

1. In reference to Item 3 ("List of New Media-related proposed and implemented policies that Usec. Badoy has formulated so far."), may I request for Memos and Orders issued by Usec. Badoy. 

(CONTINUED)

Rey Joseph 09:56 PM, Mar 13, 2018

... Please exclude policies where she merely "provided inputs". The list provided in the previous eFoI request doesn't contain any of such nature.

2. In reference to Item 2 ("Summary of Accomplishments"), may I request for a list of dialogues and consultative meetings with "Visayas and Mindanao Bloggers", including the date and venue of these meetings, the names of blogger-participants, and the ensuing policies, whether proposed or enacted.

3. In reference to Item 2 ("Summary of Accomplishments"), may I request for the details of the Vis-Min bloggers' workshop that she facilitated, specifically her official role in the said workshop, along with the name of the workshop's organizers.

4. In reference to Item 2 ("Summary of Accomplishments"), may I have the dates when she attended Press Briefings (don't worry, they're not that many) along with details regarding her participation in each meeting (i.e. sitting throughout a meeting without doing anything doesn't count.)

Kind Regards,
RJ Nieto
