|WHEREAS, the government is
committed to pursue its policy of decentralization, as embodied in the
Local Government Code of 1991, as much as it is committed to streamline
the bureaucracy by adopting a homogenous grouping of
functionally-related government agencies;
WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 149 dated 28 December 1993 transferred the Kalinga Special Development Authority (KSDA) to the Department of National Defense (DND) for policy and program coordination/integration and/or administrative supervision prior to its eventual abolition;
WHEREAS, in the course of the KSDA’s attachment to the DND, it has been observed that the thrust, functions, and activities of the KSDA are not aligned with the thrust, functions, and activities of the DND;
WHEREAS, the KSDA and the CEB-CAR share the same objective of hastening the economic growth and development of Kalinga;
WHEREAS, the CEB-CAR attested to its functional alignment with the KSDA through a resolution wherein it expressed its willingness to assume supervision and control of the KSDA;
WHEREAS, there is an immediate need to transfer the KSDA from the DND to the CEB-CAR to effect the mainstreaming of the current programs and projects of the KSDA with those of existing government instrumentalities in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) prior to the abolition of the KSDA; and
WHEREAS, Sec. 31, Chapter 10, Title III, Book III of Executive Order No. 292, otherwise known as the Administrative Code of 1987, provides continuing authority to the President to reorganize the administrative structure of the Office of the President.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, FIDEL V. RAMOS, President of the Philippines, by virtue of the power vested in me by law, do hereby order:
DONE in the City of Manila, this 16th day of April in the year of Our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Ninety Six.
