Background

Coinciding with the regular three-year term of office of local elective officials, the Regional Development Council was reorganized in 2013 as prescribed in Executive Order 325. Following the reorganization of the Council proper, the RDC2 sectoral committees were likewise reorganized with the selection of a new set of committee officials and private sector representatives.

This reorganization provides for, among others the absorption of the Committee on Development Information and Communication (CDIC) by the Committee on Development Administration (CODA). This is supported by the argument that development administration which is being advocated by CODA already encompasses the information dissemination program of the government. The CODA, as one of the sectoral committees, which is flexible in nature as provided by the IRR of E.O. 325, could subsume the functions of the CDIC. The resulting committee is now named as Committee on Development Administration and Communication (CODAC) with its new membership reinforced as well as its function, to include agencies and NGOs concerned with development information and communication.
