To cap the year, the NEDA Region IV-A as the RPMC Secretariat extended online trainings to enhance the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capability of the Provincial Project Monitoring Committees (PPMCs) of Laguna and Batangas on December 15 and 17, respectively.

The trainings served as venues to orient the PPMC members on the Regional Project Monitoring and Evaluation System (RPMES) and the role of monitoring and evaluation in development management. The resource persons discussed how to accomplish the RPMES forms and how the Local Project Monitoring Committees are evaluated to select the Outstanding Local Project Monitoring Committees each year.

The operationalization of the RPMES is also being supported by the DILG through its Memorandum Circular No. 2019-188 “Organization or Reconstitution of Sub-Regional Project Monitoring Committees”.
