The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently established a Department of Agrarian Reform Provincial Office (DARPO) in Malita, Davao Occidental through Administrative Order No. 01, Series of 2018.
DAR Secretary John R. Castriciones said the DARPO shall be headed by the Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) II or a designated qualified civil servant and shall directly supervise and manage the delivery of agrarian reform related services to the constituents of the Province.
DARPO shall then consists of the Provincial Program Beneficiaries Development Division, Land Tenure Improvement Division, Legal Division, Support to Operations Division and Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Offices (MARPO).
He cited that the funding required to support the daily operations of the DARPO-Davao Occidental shall be sourced from the DARPO-Davao del Sur funds starting from the effectivity of this Order until a separate budget for the province is approved.
The DAR Central Office and DAR-Region Region XI may augment the funds for this purpose subject to the existing budget, accounting and auditing rules and regulations.
