Pursuant to the Bagong Pilipinas brand of governance of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) is institutionalizing reforms promoting transparency and accountability, and streamlining services in the housing sector.

Under Department Circular 2024-005 signed on Feb. 14, Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar ordered the institutionalization of reforms in the agency, particularly on the issuances of licenses, certificates and permits.

“This (DC) is in line with the administration’s Bagong Pilipinas brand of governance to better serve the Filipino public,” he said.

The circular would not only promote transparency and accountability but equally important is that it will further streamline processes in the housing sector, hence, better delivery of public service,” he noted.

The circular aims not only to simplify DHSUD processes in applying for permits, licenses and certificates but also to synchronize the same with other agencies, particularly the local government units, hence, the avoidance of redundant/unnecessary requirements and bureaucratic red tape.

“Through this circular, we harmonize all processes pertaining to licensing, permitting and certification to prevent confusion and delays,” Acuzar said.
