About e-RDC10RMMES

 

 

Description

 

The Electronic RDC-10 Results Matrix Monitoring and Evaluation System
(e-RDC10RMMES) has been developed  by Neda Region 10 Office  (NEDA-10) in 2014 with the  financial assistance from the Department of Science and Technology  Region 10 Office under its Grant-in-Aid Program.
 
 

The  e-RDC10RMMES is an enhancement of the development results monitoring

system of the NEDA-10 in support to the operations of the RDC-10 by using

electronic means in generating, processing and analysis of input data and

information, as well as, utilization of the processed data and information.

It, therefore, facilitates electronic submission to NEDA-10 by agencies concerned of

pertinent data and information, as well as, their electronic processing.

 

 

The e-RDC10RMMES primarily monitors and evaluates the achievement of

the development outcomes as laid down in the updated 2011-2016 Northern

Mindanao Regional Development Plan’s (RDP’s) Results Matrices (RMs) and

upcoming medium term regional development plans by means of tracking the

annual accomplishments of the various indicators included in the RMs. Each

of the chapters of the RDP has its own RM.

 

 

It is a web-based system, therefore, submission of input data and information

and viewing of the processed data can be done anywhere  through internet.

 

The e-RDC10RMMES is operated and maintained by the NEDA-10.


 

Rationale

The slow decline in the poverty incidence and high inequality prompted the Philippine Government to carry out public sector reforms toward more efficient use of

resources for service delivery. Related to this, the Government for several years now has been pursuing ‘managing for development results (MfDR)’ approach as an

effort to improve the effectiveness of public sector management.

 

 

The MfDR is a management strategy that emphasizes on development performance

and on improvement of country outcomes. It  is based on the notions of goal-orientedness, causality, and continuous improvement. This means that setting

clear goals and results provides targets for change and opportunities to assess whether change has happened. It hypothesizes that various inputs and activities lead

logically to higher order of results (outputs, outcomes and impacts). The periodical measuring of results provides the basis for adjusting programs to keep them on track and to maximize their outcomes.

 

 

The  Government is now pursuing application of MfDR in the entire public sector management such that it is now  pursuing “planning for results”, “budgeting for

results”, “implementing for results”, “monitoring  results” and “evaluating results”.

With President Aquino’s 16-point agenda as the guidepost, the “plan-for-results”

aspect of the MfDR was applied by NEDA-Central Office in coordinating

the formulation of the 2011-2016 Philippine Development Plan (PDP) and the

2011-2016 PDP Results Matrices (RMs). The “budget-for-results” is being operationalized through the government’s medium term expenditure framework and organizational performance indicator frameworks (OPIFs), among others.

Monitoring of RMs and OPIFs is part of practicing monitor results aspect of the

MfDR. RMs are expected to facilitate tracking of development gains achieved and a means to monitor and evaluate the progress of the Philippine Development Plan.

 

 

Mainstreaming MfDR at the regional development process is an ongoing

undertaking, as well. As an integral part in  the formulation of the 2011-2016 

Northern Mindanao (Region 10) Regional Development  Plan (RDP), the

NEDA-Region 10 Office, being the Secretariat of the Regional Development

Council, coordinated the formulation of the RDP Results Matrices (RMs),

which integrate results-orientation in the strategies, programs and projects indicated in the plan.

 

 

The progress of the implementation of the Region 10’s Regional Development

Plan is being reported annually through the Regional Development Report

(RDR). The report is prepared by the NEDA-10 staff using pertinent data and

information from regional offices of the national government agencies, state

universities and colleges, local government units and private entities. Submission

by the partner agencies and entities concerned of needed data and information

and their processing and analysis by the NEDA-10 staff  are done manually, which usually take about four days exclusive for these tasks. 

 

 

The e-RDC10RMMES, therefore,  shortens the time in processing and analysis of data and information.


 

Objectives

 

General Objective: Improved RDC-10’s system and capacity for planning for results,
programming and budgeting for results and monitoring and evaluating for results.

 

Specific Objective: Improved RDC-10 Secretariat’s system in monitoring and evaluating
the impact of the outputs from the various development interventions to the attainment of development outcomes and impact as indicated in the 2011-2016 RDP and RMs in terms of quality of and reduced time in processing and analysis by the RDC-10 Secretariat of input data and information needed to monitor and evaluate the achievement of the region’s desired development outcomes and impact.

 

This particular objective is aligned with the thrust of the Philippine Government in improving

productivity and quality of the bureaucracy. It is, also, supportive with the Government’s fiscal management scheme of sector effectiveness and efficiency review (SEER), which subjects agencies’ expenditure proposals to tests for consistency with government priorities for funding purposes.
