Cotabato City- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) conducted a three-day Cascading of Mandatory and New Issuances and Pertinent Orders to one hundred forty three (143) Agrarian Reform Program Technologists (ARPTs) and Senior Agrarian Reform Program Technologists (SARPTs) in General Santos City.
Regional Director Nasser Musali said the cascading on July 21-23 focused on Administrative Orders 2, 4, 6, 7, Joint DAR-LBP-DENR Administrative Order No. 3 series of 2014 and other LTI activities.
Director Musali said most of the participants are newly hired employees as a result of the implementation of the rationalization program of the government.
"We are categorized as high Land and Acquisition Distribution (LAD) region that is why we have hired new personnel and promoted some of you," Director Musali explained.
Musali encouraged everyone to internalize the theories shared to them by the resource persons who are all seasoned personnel and rose from the ranks before they became leaders in their respective fields.
DAR-North Cotabato headed by Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Marion Abella shared their experiences and strategies on how they were able to resolve problematic landholdings and how the province uses the OpTool system.
