 The Catanduanes State University (CatSU) conducted its Mid-Year Physical and Financial Performance Review on August 11, 2020 at the University Auditorium, following health safety protocols in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic.

 Dr. Freddie T. Bernal, the CatSU Officer –in-Charge (OIC) and currently Regional Director of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Regional Office No. 5 based in Legazpi City, presided over the activity. In attendance were the University’s Vice-Presidents, Campus Administrator, Deans of the Colleges, Directors, Principal Laboratory School, Officers of Student Support Services, Chiefs of Offices, Chairperson of the Project Monitoring Committee, BAC Secretariat Head, Federated Faculty Union President, Federated College Student Council President, and the CASUNEA President.

 The activity laid out the key sectors’ mid-year accomplishment, including their respective catch-up plans while major issues and concerns regarding their targets and performance were threshed-out with Dr. Bernal, the University OIC. Key inputs to the plan, including directives and re-calibrations on presented reports were discussed during the whole day activity.

 Dr. Bernal emphasized that tracking planned activities or programs must be thoroughly monitored on a monthly basis, while parameters must be based on quality. He stated the value of passion in dedicating their work to accomplish the plans as reported during the review session, and encouraged aligning them with that of the Provincial or Local Development Plans of the province as well.

  On the other hand, Dr. Bernal said that the University could take advantage of the province’s unique ecology while at the same time, ventured on expanding tie-ups with other local agencies and other international bodies which could support funds and other resources needed to supplement the University’s research agenda.
