Over 130 projects under the 2014-2015 ARMM-Health, Education, Livelihood, Peace and Governance, and Synergy (HELPS) were simultaneously monitored and geotagged in the provinces of Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur and Tawi-Tawi. The activity was conducted recently by the Regional Project Monitoring Committee of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (RPMC-ARMM).
The activity aimed to track progress of implementation of the projects being implemented by the region's Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and geo-tagged its exact location. The collated project data from the project sites will be accessible to public viewing through the Regional Project Monitoring and Evaluation System (RPMES) Database available in the Regional Planning and Development Office (RPDO) website.
