OISOE, Education and Public Works deep in debt
The president of the Dominican College of Engineers, Architects and Surveyors (Codia) Francisco Mosquea, reported on Wednesday, 7 October 2015 having received 49 case files revealing debts that the State owes to its members. The case files were delivered so that the OISOE and the ministries of Education and Public Works may honor their obligations for the construction of schools, childcare centers and hospitals.
A Codia commission is analyzing the lack of payment for work completed for the construction of extended day schools that falls under the OISOE and the ministries of Education and Public Works.
Mosquea said that Codia had created the commission in order to investigate the serious delays in payment to the engineers and architects. He added that in some cases the state owes money for work dating back to 1998.
Mosquea also revealed knowledge of situations where engineers and other contractors were threatened by OISOE, saying that in these cases they would be taking the case files directly to the Ministry of Education.
