CREATION OF THE PEO
The PEO was created on July 28, 1968 through the Executive Order formulated by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) of Misamis Oriental in support to the Republic Act 917 directing the local government, to establish a local government engineering office as part of a national DPWH decentralization program and as an engineering line agency whose main functions are to perform maintenance activities of“feeder” roads implemented by the DPWH.The funding for road maintenance projects were arranged to be 70% downloaded from the DPWH and 30% counterpart from the PLGU. Eventually, the PLGU developed a wider scope of responsibility in dealing with road maintenance activities. The decentralization of DPWH function results to the autonomy of the PLGU of Misamis Oriental in the determination and implementation ofroad and other infrastructure projects in the provincial level.
From 1977, eight Provincial Engineers have led the undertakings of the Office, namely:
Engr. Modesto C. Babaylan
Engr. Aniano H. Paraguya
Engr. PatrocenioBarredo (OIC)
Engr. Julito L. Tac-an
Engr. Lester D. Bolo (OIC)
Engr. Rolando M. Pacuribot (OIC)

Since the flagship contribution of the Marcos Administration was the construction of the national highways all over the Philippine archipelago, the maintenance and rehabilitation of roads was the primary program of the national government upon the establishment of the PEO. Along with time, the PEO advanced its capability and improved its services to deliver quality technical engineering services to its constituents. As a frontline agency belonging to infrastructure sector of the provincial bureaucracy, the office continued its search for excellence in providing technical engineering services consistent with the national standards of the DPWH in implementing infrastructures for horizontal and vertical projects.
With the help of external assistance and other international development agencies such as the Australian Agency for International Development (AUSAID) through the Provincial Roads Management Facility (PRMF) whose entry point since 2010 was road managementand development based on rational and logical selection criteria, i.e., formulation of the Provincial Roads Network Development Plan(PRNDP),the PEO has evolved into a more competent, effective and efficient organization in terms of the following: (a) project planning and implementation, (b) monitoring of infrastructure projects; and, (c) assessment and evaluation to effect substantial economic and societal outcome. To date, the PEO has conducted around 90 various capacity development activities for engineers and other selected frontline administrative personnel.
At present, PEO has various plans subject to the approval of the LCE for effective delivery of its functions and mandate, such as, but, not limited to the following;
- PRNDP which is a five-year road management and development plan utilizing scientific prioritization of provincial roads based on rational and logical selection criteria with respect to the LGU’s limited fund resource. Community and Stakeholder’s Consultation and community involvement in project implementation and sustaining the quality of road condition after the implementation are the fundamental features of the PRNDP.
- Road Maintenance Strategy (RMS) which is a maintenance strategy taking into account the kind of maintenance activity applicable to a distinct road condition. The strategy employs clustering of maintenance areas wherein Heavy Equipment Teams are distributed to three cluster areas to immediately address road maintenance concerns within their jurisdictions.
