Cauiguiran orders inventory of CIAC resources, income

    CLARK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – Newly appointed Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) president and CEO Alex Cauguiran has ordered an inventory of resources, income and revenues of the corporation as well as a detailed list of all locators at this airport.

    On Monday, Cauguiran also ordered the “rationalization plan” so that the Government Commission on GOCCs (GCG) could already approve it and the adjustments for salaries and wages could be implemented.

    “I instructed the OPR to fi nish it ASAP,” Cauguiran said. “My heart belongs to the workers.”

    The CIAC chief wanted to know “what are our sources of revenues from the airside, landside inside the terminal and outside the terminal like those that we signed leased agreements and the fourth one which is an executive order providing shared income with the Clark Development Corp. (CDC).”

    He said a report of the corporation’s cash position, income and sources of revenues should also be submitted.

    “If we have money we have capacity,” he said.

    He also instructed the offi cers to submit specific plans to be implemented in a week or two and to come up with a CIAC property map indicating zoning, use and subdivision plans.

    In line with this, Cauguiran said the managers should submit a matrix from the list of locators both airside and landside that should indicate the name of locators, nature of business, land area, rental/lease rate and duration of lease.

    This will be done so that our budget offi cer will be able to budget our funds for one year but we have to live within our means, Cauguiran said.

    Citing the good relationship with newly-appointed Bases Conversion and Development Corp. (BCDA) president Vince Dizon as well as CDC president Noel Manankil, Cauguiran said this could work well to the airport corporation’s advantage.

    “I assured them I will never go against the policy of the BCDA and the DOTr (Department of Transportation) but I pleaded don’t let CIAC down,” he said because Clark airport was specially mentioned by President Duterte in his SONA.

    “My passion is about airports. I used to be an activist and I clamored for the removal of the military bases and in its place is a civilian use,” he said.

    “Many years ago, I was in front of the gate of Clark (Air Base) and then now here I am,” he said recalling his days as a street parliamentarian advocating for the removal of the US bases here.
