To assess the  accomplishments, financial performance, and other deliverables vis-à-vis the set targets and objectives, DA-BAR through its Program Monitoring, Evaluation, and Linkaging Division conducted a review of three completed and two ongoing research for development (R4D) projects on 17 November 2023 via Google meet.

Funded through the DA-Agricultural Competitiveness Enhancement Fund R4D Grant program, the completed projects include the upgrading of the Mariano Marcos Technology Innovation and Partnership Center, Cavite State University Coffee Product Development Facility, and Caraga State University Dairy Carabao Facility. Status and progress of the ongoing upgrading of Cacao R4D Center and Food Processing Laboratory was reported by DA-CALABARZON and DA-SOCCSKSARGEN, respectively.
