Transition committee on track – Palace

Malacañang today said preparations for the smooth transition of power to the incoming administration are currently ongoing and are “on track.”

In a press briefing in Malacañang this afternoon, Presidential Management Staff assistant secretary Wilfrido Oca said necessary documents are already being prepared by concerned agencies to assist the government in formulating a “transition blueprint.”

“The different agencies of government have already created their agency transition cooperation team and these ATCTs will be drafting or submitting their organizational transition reports and functional transition reports to the Presidential Transition Cooperation Team,” Oca said.

“Aside from that, there will be a meeting of the different clusters involved in the submission of the OTRs and FTRs scheduled on Thursday. On Friday, there will be a planning session of PTCT pursuant to Administrative Order 285,” he added.

“From there up to the planning session, it is expected that a transition blueprint will be presented during the Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, May 25,” Oca said.

Oca added that aside from preparing the transition documents, “planning for the inauguration of the incoming president as well as the security aspect of the transition will be discussed.”

Executive Secretary Leandro Mendoza expressed the government’s willingness to extend any assistance to ensure a flawless transition.

“As what we had said in our transition document, we are ready to provide them the necessary coordination: the place, the time and the participants,” Mendoza said.

“We are on track. The timeline is on schedule,” he added. (PND)
