Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said that all infrastructure projects bidded out by the city government will undergo strict inspection before contractors are paid.
The Baguio politiko said the move aims to ensure the quality of infrastructure projects.
Under the new procedure, the city government will conduct the inspection before it pays contractors for the second and final tranches of projects.
“It is about time that we compel contractors to undertake quality projects,” Magalong said.
“We can decide not to pay contractors with substandard or defective works. We want quality projects that are commensurate to their costs,” he added.
