Message from the DOST Secretary Globalization has diffused into all aspects of human society and concurrently demands serious planning and action from all the countries of the world. This is already evident in exchanges in the culture and arts, telecommunications, the medical field, transportation, agriculture and environmental protection. Likewise, globalization greatly affects local trade and industry as trade barriers are reduced and more foreign goods and services flood the Philippine market. This has led to the relevance of innovation as a science-based approach in production, and has ultimately become crucial in ensuring the competitiveness of our local businesses. Contained in this report are the projects, programs and services rendered by the Department of Science and Technology-National Capital Region (DOST-NCR), in consonance with the demands of rapid globalization. Along with the numerous projects implemented and services rendered by the DOST-NCR, I commend the management and staff for continuously providing technical and consultancy support to enable MSMEs to prosper in the country’s business center. DOST-NCR deserves recognition for its pro-active approach in promoting technologies developed by DOST’s Councils and Research and Development Institutes. Today, they stand as an integral component towards the fulfillment of the mission and vision of the whole Department. In the spirit of innovation, and given the track record of the DOST-NCR in accomplishments, I am confident that they will again produce a myriad of projects that would empower MSMEs in a globalized society. Mabuhay!

Hon. MARIO G. MONTEJO Secretary, dost

Undersecretary’s Message

I congratulate and commend the Regional Director and staff of the Department of Science and Technology-National Capital Region for again surpassing its targets for the year 2011. They organized and conducted activities that focused on client requirements. Such activities that should be highlighted include the 2011 Stakeholders Summit, which recognized the inspiring stories of the agency’s SETUP adoptors; and the 2011 Regional Inventions Contest and Exhibits (RICE), held in cooperation with the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI), which encouraged innovation, especially among the student entries. For 2012, with a bigger budget allocated for SETUP, DOST-NCR faces the challenge of enticing more MSMEs to avail of the Program and to equal, if not surpass, the accomplishments of earlier SETUP adoptors. Further, DOST-NCR faces the challenge of encouraging more company managers and community leaders to adopt a science-based approach in production and project implementation to keep the spirit of innovation alive in the National Capital Region.

Dr. CAROL M. YOROBE Undersecretary for Regional Operations

It is with much appreciation and gratitude that I acknowledge the support of the DOST Management, DOST agencies, our 96 linkages and our technical experts, without which these successes would have been very difficult to achieve. Finally, my heartfelt kudos and admiration goes to the DOST-NCR staff that painstakingly labored in the implementation and completion of all the projects, and remained committed in providing unselfish service to our clients. As our country vies for a respectable niche in the global market, we will continue to fervently pursue our mandate, our mission and our vision to help build a skilled, informed, productive and competitive NCR through relevant and responsive service harnessing the tools of science and technology.

GEARING UP FOR GLOBALIZATION

The advent of borderless countries and open economies for trade and industry poses both daunting challenges and gigantic opportunities for the entrepreneur with firm courage and positive foresight. Efficient production and, rising safety and quality standards demands that local manufacturers keep up with the advancements in technologies that give marked business advantages to their foreign counterparts and competitors. Continuous improvement of products, processes, price competitiveness, promotions and market placements are crucial choices required for survival in the highly competitive business climate under globalization. With tariff-free trading ushering the influx of foreign products and services in the local market vying for a share of the purchasing power of 95 million Filipinos, local entrepreneurs must seize the opportunity brought by these same developments to explore and develop foreign markets to create a unique niche for Philippine products and services in the global trading arena. To support such a vision, the DOST-NCR partners with existing MSMEs by providing the necessary improvements of their processes, products and services through process standardizations and equipment acquisition and upgrading, technical consultancies, packaging and labeling assistance, and manpower training.

working on safer & cleaner communities 23

As part of DOST’s thrusts to find solutions to pressing national problems, DOST-NCR in collaboration with the Center for Health Development-Metro Manila (CHD-MM), and local governments in the region deployed the DOST-ITDI-developed Mosquito OviLarvicidal (OL) Traps to 6,071 households in nine (9) barangays from nine (9) Metro Manila Cities to help reduce the population of dengue carrying mosquitoes . CHD-MM identified the nine (9) priority barangays based on their increased dengue incidences as of the first semester of CY 2011. To ensure the proper application of the OL trap kits, DOST-NCR and CHD-MM organized a series of orientation seminars for the city dengue coordinators, sanitation inspectors and barangay health workers (BHW). A total of 304 BHWs were tapped to monitor the OL trap system for six months, with each BHW monitoring 20 households each.

The DOST Secretary, Hon. Mario G. Montejo, announced a further increase in SETUP funding for the whole country during the 2011 Stakeholders Summit. This ushered in more opportunities to help the MSMEs in the DOST-NCR. For 2012, the agency is committed to double its efforts. and provide better services under its mandate and its targeted plans and programs. Targets include strengthened SETUP implementation and impact monitoring to ensure the success of all funding for technology transfer. More technology based livelihood programs to create more employment at the grassroots, as well as, facilitate more solutions to pressing national problems such as the provision of ARGs, rescue boats, bioreactors, complementary foods, OL trap, water purifier and other DOST developed technology. The agency will continue facilitating adoption of appropriate technologies to spur growth among MSMEs by upgrading the facilities and machining capabilities of SUCs, fabrication of processing equipment, provision of funds for applied research and support to Technology Based Enterprise Development (DATBED). More technical interventions will be harnessed to improve industry competitiveness of MSMEs through IP management, localization of processing equipment for MSMEs, capability upgrading and strengthening of S & T consultancy services on Food Safety, Energy Audit, MPEX and Cleaner Production. Ties with the NGOs, Industry Associations and other partner agencies, will be strengthened by proper coordination for complementation and extensive support for the establishment of community based projects. Ingenuity and creativity in the Metropolis, will be encouraged through co-sponsorhip of the conduct of the Invent School Program, promotion of IP management and the conduct of the annual Invention Contest (NICE/RICE). The delivery of Government and S & T services will be enhanced through the establishment of testing facilities for jewelry, electronics and other sectors, the creation of common service facilities for food processing and the utilization of Social Networking for SETUP promotion and implementation, and the conduct of trainings and fora.
