DA-SAAD program prepares for the end of phase 1 implementation

BATANGAS, August 3, 2022 – In line with the conclusion of the first phase of implementation, the Department of Agriculture – Special Area for Agricultural Development (DA-SAAD) Program, gathered 33 implementers from the regional units for a training titled “Project Management Workshop towards Terminal Phase” from July 25 to 29, 2022 in Talisay, Batangas. This is to unify and ensure consistency in the narrative of the implementation of the program since its inception in 2017.

The five-day training aimed at equipping the regional implementers’ essential methods and primary perspectives in preparing to craft the SAAD terminal report which includes all the assessments and evaluations on the projects delivered to the beneficiaries of the DA-SAAD Program all over the country. The National Program Management Office (NPMO), facilitating and leading the whole process, ensured transparency and encouraged the regional field units to document success stories and learnings in a detailed manner, and assess outcomes with the aim of improving current and future planning and implementation.

Training and Organizational Development Consultant Ms. Marylyn Doromal discussed the modules in the workshop which are: project management, how to terminate a project, crafting the report, and the application of the discussion on producing the report.

“It is important to know your main audience before crafting the terminal report since it will be used to define how the data and information in the report would be presented,” shared Ms. Doromal.

Additionally, SAAD National Program Management Office (NPMO) Director Myer G. Mula underscored the importance of the output of the workshop, as the terminal report will show policymakers and the public that the SAAD Program had been successful in accomplishing its objectives to reach the poorest of the poor provinces and provide agricultural interventions to improve the beneficiaries’ livelihood. The documents are needed as a basis for developing similar programs and policies to help the country’s agriculture sector.

At the end of the seminar, it was announced that the regional offices of the DA-SAAD program are expected to submit their final terminal report at the end of the phase 1 implementation this December.###
