CDO to implement new system in acquiring building permits soon

The Cagayan de Oro City Building Office will soon implement a new system in acquiring building permits.

Mayor Oscar Moreno and Dr. Ricardo E. Rotoras, the president of Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) this morning for the implementation of “Building Permit Management System (BPMS).” The BPMS will ensure faster processing in acquiring permits from the City Building Office through the adaptation of a computerized system developed by experts from MUST. 

Mayor Moreno has expressed his gratitude to MUST for helping the city government in modernizing the provision of basic services. “I really thank the MUST for partnering with us. Indeed, this is a breakthrough and milestone in the city’s history. If you have a good OBO (Office of the City Building Official) then you have a good democracy,” said Moreno. 

The mayor has also added that MUST’s technical expertise would help eradicate the presence of fixers. He further stressed that this is a significant step towards reforming OBO’s operations that would make it easier for investors, businessmen, and the general public to do business with the office.
