Awards and Recognition


The Annual Program on Community Extension Awards and Recognition was conceptualized to
1.) celebrate, as a university community of extensionistas, all the hard work and passion
poured into the completion of extension projects in the previous years;
2.) promote a university award system that would disseminate best practices in
community extension work;
3.) create a pool of community extension project practices that can be replicated in
other institutions, uploaded in the university website, and/or presented in reputable
national and international award-giving bodies.

An effective extension service is multi-faceted. Primarily, it must be research-based. All GAA
funded extension projects of the university are required to be designed based on a community-
defined need. Most importantly, it takes passion and a lot of hard work to effect transformation
in the lives of our community partners. Hence, the university needs community extensionistas
with a heart.
The program is composed of the following categories:
1. University Best Practice Recognition in Community Extension 2019
2. Community Extension Poster Award
3. Best IEC Print Material
4. Best Community Extension Video
5. Best Project Implementer (Campus Category)

  • Develop action plans for village business development such as innovative craft products and/or craft-based tourism to contribute to inclusive community development.


The Government Best Practice Recognition (GBPR) is an initiative of the Development Academy
of the Philippines (DAP) to promote and showcase outstanding and innovative practices
demonstrated by the public sector organizations.
The GBPR seeks to recognize successful and validated practices demonstrated by all public
sector organizations. It provides a platform to showcase and promote best practices as a way to
foster knowledge sharing and to contribute in sustaining performance results in the entire
bureaucracy. Ultimately, this collaborative learning mechanism envisions improving the quality
of service and competitiveness of government institutions.

GBPR Presentation Criteria for Judging
 Level of Deployment – Is the practice used throughout the whole organization or just
one part of the organization? How well is it understood and applied by relevant
personnel? How long has it been deployed?
 Innovation – What is innovative about the practice? Is it a new practice, is it a practice
that gradually improved over time, or is it an idea or practice that was adapted from
another organization?
 Best Practice Performance (Results) – Description of the non-financial benefits (e.g.
increased motivation or client satisfaction, reduced staff turnover, greater productivity,
less complaints, satisfied beneficiaries, attainment of MFO targets, alignment with OPIF,
etc) and financial benefits if available (e.g. PhP saved, % increase in revenue or savings,
cost-effectiveness, budget utilization rate, budget disbursement rate) that have resulted
from implementing the practice.
 Best Practice Evidence – Has the practice been validated as a 'good/best' practice (e.g.
was it adapted from another organization through benchmarking, was it compared the
practice and its performance against benchmarks, did the organization received any
recognition or award for the practice or does the organization consider it is a good/best
practice based on their own experience)
 Replicability of practice – How is great is the potential for the practice to be replicated
by other public sector? Have there been any instances where the practice has been
benchmarked by other agencies or offices?
 Review/next steps planned – How will the best practice be sustained or evolved as

Shared Service Facility

What is Shared Service Facility?

MSME Development (MSMED) is a key strategy to achieve the government’s goal of inclusive growth and jobs generation. The 2013 General Appropriations Act (GAA) has earmarked funds under the budget of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to implement its “Big Push” for MSME development. A major component of the MSMED Program is the Shared Service Facilities (SSF) Project which aims to improve the competitiveness of MSMEs by providing them with machinery, equipment, tools, systems, skills and knowledge under a shared system. [1]

The SSF Project is being implemented nationwide with project partners termed as Cooperators.  Cebu Technological University is one of the selected co-operators of SSF projects in Cebu Province of Region 7.

The SSF Project aims to attain one or more of the objectives below:

  • Enable MSMEs to increase their productivity;
  • Accelerate MSMEs’ competitiveness by giving them access to energy efficient technologies and more sophisticated equipment;
  • Encourage the graduation of MSMEs to the next level where they could tap a better and wider market share and be integrated in the global supply chain;
  • Take into account convergence where government resources are pooled and integrated; and
  • Address the gap and bottlenecks in the value chain of priority industry clusters.
