President Rodrigo Duterte, on November 18, signed an executive order establishing a National Government Administrative Center (NGAC) in New Clark City, Tarlac, to serve as a back-up office in case of disasters in the capital region.
Per Executive Order (EO) No. 119, the NGAC will serve as “an integrated government outside the NCR, and, in case of disaster, a recovery center and back-up administrative hub.”
The document pointed out that the capital region is vulnerable to natural disasters, including flooding and earthquakes, thus the “urgent need to establish an integrated government center outside the NCR.”
“The establishment of integrated government centers fosters ease of doing business, provides equal access to efficient and effective delivery of public service,” it read.
EO No. 119 also directed all government agencies under the executive branch to establish satellite or field offices at the NGAC.
All government-owned or -controlled corporations(GOCCs), the legislative and judicial branches, are also encouraged to establish offices at the back-up hub.
The establishment of satellite or field offices will be done in phases and clusters to be determined by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), the EO said.
