CDA needs re-engineering

Only 30 percent of the 3,600 cooperatives formed in the Bicol region are functional or operational. This was the lament of former Negros Occidental Governor Rafael L. Coscolluela, now Presidential Assistant on Cooperatives.

Coscolluela, who was in Naga City over the weekend for the Bicol leg in his overseeing and evaluation of coops nationwide, said that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo would like to have a cleaned-up list of cooperatives throughout the country which are operational, so as to make sure that the government's assistance to these organizations are not put to waste.

In Camarines Sur alone, records show that there are 1,411 registered coops in the province, with only 457 operational, while 594 are non-operational, 335 have cancelled their operations, and 25 others are already dissolved or non-existent. Coscolluela said the way to cooperative development is through local councils. In fact, the Office of the Presidential Assistant on Cooperatives (OPAC), which has an oversight function over the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), is now in the final phase of organizing a National Cooperatives Development Council, he said.

He also added that President Arroyo feels bad over the plight of cooperatives, which is basically due to mismanagement. "Findings of the study made by the Presidential Management Staff (PMS) said the Cooperative Development Authority needs a re-engineering process."
