The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) XI vows to perpetually enforce the implementation of the Anti-Red Tape Act in all its operations across the region.

On May 6, 2022, the Office initiated a reorientation on Republic Act 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018 in order to continually improve the streamlining of its key frontline services and programs.

Administered by the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) Eastern Mindanao Region, the purpose of the activity was to reorient the participants on the salient features of the R.A. 11032. The activity was participated by DOLE XI Committee on Anti-Red Tape, ARTA Focal Persons, Public Assistance Complaints Desk Officers, and Regional Program Focal Persons.

The re-orientation was presented by Atty. Lord Anthony A. Pusod, Attorney III of ARTA Eastern Mindanao Region, in which he gave emphasis on providing quality government service while considerably reducing expenses and inconvenience as well as the corresponding administrative sanctions and penalties for violation of said law.

“This reorientation is one of DOLE XI’s means to uphold its commitment to promote transparency and eliminate red tape concerns across Davao Region. Our endeavor to effectively and efficiently perform our duty as public servants speaks for itself,” said DOLE XI Regional Director Atty. Randolf C. Pensoy.

The activity was also attended by DOLE XI Asst. Regional Director Atty. Jason P. Balais, TSSD Chief Paul V. Cruz, heads of DOLE XI Field Offices, ARTA Eastern Mindanao Region Chief Administrative Officer Fedelita M. Resma and Supervising Administrative Officer Eldie Barrientos.

ARTA Undersecretary Ernest V. Perez graced the event via Zoom and acknowledged the allegiance of DOLE XI to the government’s mandate to firmly enforce the Anti-Red Tape Act in all frontline services.

Signed into law on May 28, 2018, R.A. 11032 is the landmark law of the Duterte Administration that is poised to expedite prompt actions of all government transactions with efficiency.
