CPD-13 embarks on strategic planning, budgeting for 2024

BUENAVISTA, Agusan del Norte -- In a resounding commitment to operational excellence, the Commission on Population and Development (CPD) Caraga recently conducted a comprehensive Planning and Budgeting Workshop for the fiscal year 2024. This two-day workshop, skillfully facilitated by CPD-Caraga Regional Director Alexander A. Makinano, delved into the intricacies of enhancing Quality Management System (QMS) processes. 

The enhancements were carefully anchored on the four critical, external and internal factors, ensuring a well-rounded approach to planning namely:

(1) PPD PoA for 2023-2028: This factor provided a strategic direction for CPD-Caraga, aligning its goals with the Philippine Population and Development Program's Plan of Action for 2023-2028;

(2) Ongoing Organizational Development and Strategic Planning: CPD-Caraga continued to evolve, and this factor emphasized the importance of adapting its QMS processes to the changing landscape;

(3) Full Localization Based on Approved CPD DTP: A significant development, this approach ensured that CPD-Caraga's initiatives are attuned to the specific needs and nuances of its region, as approved by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM); and 

(4) New Data-Driven CPD Leadership and Management: CPD-Caraga placed a strong emphasis on data-driven decision-making that empowered the organization to make more informed and effective choices.

In a dynamic and forward-thinking move, all QMS Process Owners were actively involved in this workshop. They were tasked with proposing projects and activities aimed at enhancing their QMS major documents. Moreover, these proposals were seamlessly integrated into the Work and Financial Plans of their respective units. This integration allowed for a comprehensive consolidation into the Section Work and Financial Plan, ensuring a cohesive and coordinated approach to achieving CPD-Caraga's objectives.

RD Makinano pointed-out that the workshop on August 31 to September 01, 2023 at CPD-Caraga conference room signified CPD-Caraga's unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and its dedication to serving its constituents more efficiently and effectively. Indeed, the organization charted a course into the future by strengthening the foundation built on strategic planning and enhanced quality management.

The Planning and Budgeting Workshop for FY 2024 set a promising trajectory for CPD-Caraga as it strived to fulfill its mandate and to make a meaningful impact to the  communities. (May Ann O. Escobal, CPD Caraga/PIA Caraga)
