Procurement & Finance Training - A.1 Marabut

No comments :

04JUN2015. DSWD is currently conducting a Procurement & Finance Training for Community Volunteers in Marabut, Samar under its KALAHI program - including those supported by our JFPR Grant 9175 under sub-component A.1.

This is a requirement under the DSWD's CDD program, where volunteers must first be equipped with the proper knowledge and skills on various aspects of project management before a community can start actual implementation of their sub-projects.

A continuous series of workshops, participants undergo rigid training on matters like 'cash flows', 'procurement schedule', 'procurement packages for construction materials' and many others. A very tedious and long process, but as Maynard Matammu (GMU's Project Coordinator for A.1) puts it, "at least it ensures that the community is fully equipped with the knowledge and skills towards ensuring a community driven development".
