BPI 2017-2022 STRATPLAN LAUNCHED
The Bureau of Plant industry (BPI), with the assistance of the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), has undergone an organizational performance and capacity assessment which aimed to identify areas that need strengthening to be more effective and efficient in the delivery of its mandates.
Organizational interventions were determined. BPI identified the need to develop a medium-term strategic plan that will describe where the organization is right now, where they want to go and the course of action needed in terms of programs and interventions.
On January 18, 2017, during the celebration of BPI 87th Founding Anniversary, the Strategic Plan for 2017-2022 was launched. DAP Team headed by Mr. Antonio D. Kalaw, Jr. handed to BPI OIC Director Vivencio R. Mamaril the fruit of the nine months hard work, a 220-page STRATPLAN. Dir Mamaril said that the book will be the “bible” of the employees of BPI in the next 6 years.
The 2017-2022 Strategic Plan is designed to prepare BPI embark on a journey towards quality and performance excellence, as it pursues its mandate in the area of plant genetic resource conservation and management; crop research, protection, and production; plant pest surveillance and forecasting; pest management system and control strategies; analytical services; seed quality services; plant quarantine services; agricultural engineering services; and food safety.
Dir. Mamaril urged the public to check on the Bureau’s performance every now and then based on the developed STRATPLAN.
