DA-PRDP captures data in Dinagat Islands subprojects

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte (PIA) -- To continuously monitor its proponent groups (PG), the Department of Agriculture-Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP) rolled out the Enterprise Operations Monitoring (EOM) forms in the Province of Dinagat Islands.

The EOM tool will capture data from each member and non-member who have transactions with the beneficiary groups.

Likewise, it gathers enterprise information such as, planning and implementation, practices, processes, and procedures that were used in the implementation, deployment, and execution of business plans, strategies, and all associated activities.

Furthermore, the tool will be used to easily track down the enterprise progress and evaluate the project’s impact. This will determine the strengths and weaknesses of the PG that will help PRDP to assess which area it can provide additional assistance.

Data gathered will then be developed into a Web-Based Information System to ease the data navigation of the implementing team.

Included in the Declaration and Certification of Finances rollout were the New Mabuhay Seaweed Farmers and Fisherfolks Association, General Aguinaldo Farmers Association, and A&M Multi-purpose Cooperative.

Proponent groups will be responsible for data gathering both quantitative and qualitative information on specific variables. (DA-Caraga/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
