DA rolls out EOM forms in Dinagat Islands 

SAN JOSE, Dinagat Islands -- To continuously monitor its proponent groups (PG), the Department of Agriculture (DA) - Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) rolled out the Enterprise Operations Monitoring (EOM) forms in the province of Dinagat Islands on September 15-17, 2021.

 

The EOM tool will capture data from each member and non-member who have transactions with PRDP’s PG. Likewise, it gathers enterprise information such as, planning and implementation, practices, processes, and procedures that were used in the project implementation, deployment, and execution of business plans, strategies, and all associated activities.

 

Furthermore, the tool will serve as an immediate reference for the implementing team on the progress and operationalization of the PRDP supported enterprises.

 

EOM data will be a feedbacking mechanism to the PRDP management team whether the desired outcomes and the overall development objectives of the projects are likely or unlikely achieved given the situations and lessons. As the enterprise progresses the management may use the data collected as a basis to introduce innovations to make the subprojects more sustainable.

 

On the other hand, PGs can use the device to monitor the enterprise’s day-to-day transactions. PGs can generate documents, such as income statements, sales reports, inventories of assets and products, buyers’ directories, members' profiles, and many more. EOM can also be a reference in decision-making for the operations of the enterprise.

 

Included in the data capture form 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 on quantitative and qualitative information. The recording involves documenting the accomplished activities then uploading data to the system. 

 

Data gathered will then be developed into a Web-Based Information System to ease the data navigation of the implementing team. (Zenny G. Awing/DA-PRPD13/PIA-Dinagat Islands)
