DOLE Pampanga wins CAMP Bayanihan



September 28, 2021 - The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Pampanga Provincial Field Office bagged the major award as best implementing field office in the CAMP Bayanihan Awards held during the virtual 21st National PESO Congress last week.


The said awards was especially created to recognize DOLE regional and field offices that went above and beyond in the implementation of the COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP). 


DOLE Pampanga, one of the two major awardees for CAMP Bayanihan 2, bested other regional offices in the “moderate” cluster. The other awardee was DOLE Nueva Viscaya winning under the “light” cluster. Regions were classified (light, moderate, heavy) based on the percentage share of each region to the total number of reported displaced/affected workers. 


Meanwhile, Zamboanga Sibugay and Cagayan De Oro were winners for CAMP under Bayanihan 1. All nominees for the CAMP Bayanihan Awards were rated based on advocacy, innovation, and fund utilization. 


According to DOLE Pampanga head Arlene Tolentino, DOLE Pampanga per se was able to evaluate almost 4,000 establishment applications and more than a thousand individual applications for CAMP 2. “Given the volume of applications and time constraint, we had to strategize and thus adopted a shifting schedule and even worked past office hours in order to avoid heavy traffic and system lags in the online portal where tagging and evaluation is done,” Tolentino explained. 


In an interview, Regional Director Geraldine Panlilio acknowledged and thanked DOLE-III personnel of their “tireless” efforts even at this difficult time. 


The implementation of CAMP served as the government’s primary response to mitigate the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic serving affected workers in the formal sector. In Central Luzon, the program provided a one-time cash support of P5,000 to 285,913 workers as of September 28. ###
