Edu Punay Career
The former journalist was formerly appointed to operate under what was then called the Presidential Communications Operations Office but was later transferred to the DSWD.
According to a Palace memorandum, Punay has been authorized “to ensure that the day-to-day activities of the DSWD are managed effectively, efficiently and economically, including the signing of administrative issuances, contracts, memoranda of agreement, or official documents necessary to carry out the objectives, policies and functions for the efficient and effective operation (of the DSWD), consistent with the authority granted to an OIC under existing laws, rules and regulations.”
Punay has also been charged with proceeding with ongoing projects, programs and activities of the DSWD, including the procurement and allocation of funds, but is not approved to enter into contracts or agreements that involve recent programs and activities.
As OIC, Punay can enter contracts involving the renewal of contractual or casual employees, as well as job orders and contractual service workers to ensure that DSWD operations will proceed.
A source at the DSWD confirmed that Punay is now OIC “internally” but also said there had been no official statement yet as of Tuesday afternoon. A separate source also verified the designation, adding it was effective December 23.
Prior to Punay, the DSWD was headed by Erwin Tulfo, who was twice disregarded by the substantial Commission on Appointments — first in September due to lack of time and again in December due to issues regarding his citizenship and a slander conviction.
