Mbulletin

Legazpi City, Albay — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) office in Bicol recently sealed new partnership with professional service providers (PSPs) with the signing of contracts worth a total of P30.5 million under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity & Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) program.


Some P27 million of the amount is for the Business Development Services (BDS), covering 38 sub-projects while the remainder of P3.5 million is set for Agri-Extension Services (AES) covering 20 sub-projects.

The BDS is the capability building and technical assistance component of ARCCESS project where the recipients are those agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) who were granted with Common Service Facilities (CSF) or farm machineries. This component as support services intervention will benefit around 15,000 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and some 48 ARBOs in the region.

The purpose of outsourcing BDS for ARBs enterprises from the private sector or business association is to provide the management expertise that will catalyze and fast track the establishment of self-sustaining business units among ARBOs that will consolidate their farm management and business operations in redistributed lands.
