Selected TGP Components Turned Over to DA-ATI

Selected components of Techno Gabay Program (TGP) were recently tuned over to DA-Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI) during formal turn over ceremonies held at the Asian Institute of Management  Conference Center in Makati City last October 18, 2012.

Under Executive Order No. 801, "Encouraging local government units to adopt the Techno Gabay in their agricultural extension programs  and the concerned government agencies to provide the required assistance  for the purpose," a joint memorandum circular from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Interior and Local Government  (DILG), and Commission on Higher Education (CHED) was released specifically for the development of the  EO's Implementing Rules  and Regulations (IRR). The IRR will provide the necessary guidelines in the institutionalization of the TGP such as the arrangements between institutions, roles of each agency, as well as their adoption mechanisms.

The signing of the IRR by the agencies involved--Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) and the DA- Agricultural Training Institute  (DA-ATI) was the rationale behind the conduct of the formal turnover of the program. The formal turnover involved the transfer of program documents like the Manual of Operations, list of Farmers Information and Technology Services (FITS) Centers and their status, and the list of Magsasaka Siyentista (MS) among others.
