With the drive to become better, Davao del Norte State College held its Annual Planning and Budgeting 2016 at the school’s audio-visual room last October 18 – 20. The gathering was attended by the deans, directors, and representatives from all institutes and offices. The discussion was headed by DNSC’s president – Dr. Jonathan Bayogan and facilitated by the Planning and Information Office.
Since it’s the last quarter of the year, the heads assessed their units’ performances according to the targets set the previous year. The expected outputs from the planning were the evaluation of performance of each delivery unit (institutes and offices) from January to September 30, 2016 and a catch-up plan for the goals that they haven’t reached yet. The catch-up plan was expected to be carried out from October to December this year. The goals were also based on the already established DNSC 2014 – 2018 development plan.
The heads made sure that the targets followed different systems of accreditation and complied quality assurance measures of CHED Typology, SUC Levelling, Prime HRM and ISO. The mentioned accreditations were crucial in making sure that DNSC performs all its duties to its students, constituents and the community. The targets were also expected to fill in four Major Final Outputs – Higher Education Services, Advanced Education Services, Research, and Extension Services.
