SAAD7 orients personnel on Operations Manual Phase 2 implementation

Created on Monday, 09 January 2023

In preparation for the Phase 2 implementation of the Special Area for Agricultural Development (SAAD), some personnel of the Department of Agricultural-Central Visayas (DA7), who will be part of the Regional Program Advisory Committee (RPAC) were oriented on the SAAD Human Resource (HR) Operations Manual.

To carry out the smooth implementation of the SAAD Phase 2, DA-7 OIC Regional Executive Director Joel Elumba, said the operations manual (OM) will serve as a guide for the personnel (permanent and under contract of services) who will be involved in the program.

He encouraged the SAAD RPAC, composed of various unit heads to focus on the terms of reference as embodied in the OM. He further encouraged for the integration of diversified farming in the identified SAAD areas, since the approach is clustering.

Mae Montecillo, the regional SAAD focal person said that the Phase 2 will be implemented within a period of 6-year from year 2023 to 2028, covering a total of 24 municipalities region wide. Each municipality will have at least 4 identified farmer associations (FA) or barangays or a total of 96 FAs or barangays.

These 96 FAs will be divided into 2 batches- first batch for 2023-2025 implementation while the second batch will be for the year 2026-2028 implementation.
