Quintilla, who is also concurrent Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the National Resource and Logistics Management Bureau (NRLMB); Disaster Response Management Bureau (DRMB) Director Michael Cristopher R. Mathay, and members of the DSWD executive and management committees , as well as, several regional directors.

Other attendees to the event include the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) headed by project manager of the mobile operations vehicle for emergency (MOVE) Mr. Martin Kristensson and representatives from the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) led by Infrastructure Management Bureau Director Dennis E. Morales.
