PROPOSAL WRITING FOR PUBLIC INVESTMENT PROGRAM AND THREE-YEAR ROLLING INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM OF STATE UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES
Dr. Jay R. Pabustan, director for Planning, Performance, Monitoring, and Evaluation, has been invited as resource speaker for the Commission on Higher Education’s (CHED) two-day nationwide workshop entitled “Proposal Writing for Public Investment Program (PIP) and Three-Year Rolling Infrastructure Program (TRIP)” held via Zoom last October 14-15, 2020. Planning officers, directors, and even vice-presidents and presidents of state universities and colleges (SUCs) all over the country participated in the online seminar to get assistance in enhancing or improving the crafting of project proposals for funding. In an interview, Dr. Pabustan said that the training program is held annually to refresh and prepare SUCs for their PIP updating. “The purpose of the orientation is to prepare for fiscal year 2022. Ngayon pa lang, yung mga project dapat ma-identify na. And then, dapat ma-review na ng CHED, ng DBM (Department of Budget and Management), ng regional council (RDC), and then eventually ng national – NEDA (National Economic Development Authority),” said Dr. Pabustan.
