How can an LGU participate in the PRDP?
An LGU that is interested to take part in the PRDP must send a Letter of Intent (LOI) to the Project through the concerned DA RFO. In most cases, the participating PLGU shall identify and implement interventions. To officially commence the partnership between the PRDP and the LGU, both parties shall enter into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA).
The critical role of PLGUs in the development of the region’s priority commodity/ies will be identifying appropriate interventions based on the VCA. This will be followed by the crafting of a PCIP, which is a three-year rolling plan that rationalizes the interventions within the various segments of the value chain of commodities that are of significance to the province and that will contribute to the national goals of the agriculture and fishery sector.
The PLGU will list various subprojects as reflected in the PCIP, following the corresponding requirements depending on the type of a subproject. This will be followed by a series of trainings to capacitate the LGU in the preparation of various requirements such as Feasibility Study (FS), Business Plan (BP), Detailed Engineering Design (DED), etc.
