To ensure wider participation in the selection of private sector representatives (PSRs) to the MIMAROPA Regional Development Council (RDC), the NEDA MIMAROPA announces that the accreditation of private sector organizations (PSOs) for the selection of PSRs to the RDC for CY 2019-2022 is now open.

Private sector representation in the RDC has its legal basis in Executive Order No. 308 issued by President Corazon C. Aquino on November 5, 1987. It reorganized and strengthened the RDCs by increasing its membership to include representatives of the private sector who shall constitute one fourth of the members of the fully constituted Council.

PSO refers to an organization created or formed by private persons for purposes of socioeconomic development rendering service or providing assistance to the public. This includes, among others, non-government organizations, business organizations, peoples organizations, industry associations, religious organizations, cultural associations, professional organizations, civic clubs, and cooperatives.

The PSR Selection Guidelines and the PSO Accreditation Form can be accessed and downloaded at the official MIMAROPA RDC website, http//

The PSR selection guidelines prescribes the criteria and procedure for the selection of PSRs to the RDC.

Please submit the accomplished PSO accreditation form not later than February 22, 2019 (Friday) to:
