Project SpeED was designed to unclog the dockets of the DOLE offices and agencies involved in case handling. Specifically, the program aims to dispose cases filed before the concerned offices and agencies of the Department within the prescribed process cycle time of case disposition.

The Project started in 2009 to dispose by 31 March 2010 all labor cases that were pending as of 30 April 2009. Subsequently, SpeED was extended for implementation of another four (4) phases that covered the disposition of cases pending in the following periods:

  • 1 May 2009 to 31 March 2010 to be disposed by 30 September 2010;
  • as of 30 September 2010 to be disposed by 15 April 2011;
  • as of 30 June 2011 to be disposed by 31 December 2011; and
  • as of 31 December 2011 to be disposed by 30 June 2012.

In the remaining 3 years of the Aquino Administration, a sixth phase was put in place dubbed as “Project Current Dockets for 2013-2016” that directed offices with case backlogs to clear their dockets by 25 February 2013. Thereafter, the objective was to maintain these dockets current from thereon.
