Policy and Planning

Corporate Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation

1. Corporate Planning

We capacitate Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation (PME) officers from the ATI network of training centers through technical guidance sessions and other knowledge sharing activities in the national and regional levels on results-based planning and budgeting system.

2. Corporate Monitoring and Evaluation

We monitor and evaluate the implementation of the ATI’s plans and programs through performance reviews, technical guidance sessions, and results evaluation studies. We formulate guidelines in the monitoring and evaluation of ATI’s AFE programs.

Extension System Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation

We institutionalize system planning at the national and regional level, as well as conduct semestral meetings to strengthen the Agriculture and Fisheries Extension Network (AFEN). We develop and disseminate modules to build the institute’s capacity on strategic planning, as well as modules on Results Based Monitoring and Evaluation (RBME) to capacitate stakeholders in the monitoring and evaluation of AFE programs.

Extension Grant Systems

In compliance with the DA’s Administrative Order No. 24 Series of 2008 (Implementing Rules and Regulations on the Provision of Extension Grants to Accredited Private Extension Service Providers or ESPs), we offer AFE Grant System for the provision of training services, demonstration services, information/communication services, and farm/business advisory services. This aims to encourage the participation of these ESPs in modernizing the agricultural sector in the country.

Policy and Standards Development

To improve the delivery of extension services to our partners and stakeholders, we continue to harmonize the extension policies and standards for agriculture and fisheries by formulating national guidelines, performance standards, and providing technical support for legislative initiatives related to AFE.

ATI Today

Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.
