DA-10 ranks third in the nationwide financial and cash management performance for FY 2023.


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10) under the leadership of Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado garnered third place across all regional field offices (RFOs) nationwide for demonstrating sustained and effective financial and cash management for fiscal year (FY) 2023.

The recognition, which is based on the monthly utilization of the Notice of Cash Allotment for payables, was conferred earlier this week by the DA-Central Office during the year-end financial evaluation and assessment for FY 2023, held in Baguio City.

On behalf of Director Collado, the Administrative and Finance Division team led by Supervising Administrative Officer Marilou A. Santua, received the certificate of recognition, along with other DA-RFO representatives from the Ilocos and Central Luzon regions, who placed first and second, respectively.

On the achievement, the agri chief exec expressed his gratitude to the DA-10 workforce, who have been instrumental in bagging such a feat, noting the optimum and efficient utilization of funds while meeting the agency’s financial obligations.

“Guided on our mantra ’10 for 1′, which aims for Northern Mindanao to be on top, this award serves as a testament that with the concerted efforts and support of all the operating units of the department, we can always improve toward the better delivery of services to our farmers and other relevant clienteles,” RED Collado added.

Aside from bestowing said honor to performing RFOs, the recognition was also extended to top-performing attached bureaus and agencies of DA throughout the country. # (JLO/Photos supplied)
