In June this year, NIA Bicol was also awarded with “The Most Improved Group Performance Award” by the NIA top management in Quezon City for its unprecedented feat that led to a P22.8 million net income for the agency’s regional operation in 2009.
The award was based on the unparalleled performance of NIA Bicol in 2009 when it posted a total income of P67.8 million from irrigation service fee’s (ISF) current and back accounts, amortization of communal irrigation system (CIS), equipment rentals and other revenues. Less operational expenses for personnel salaries and benefits, and maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) amounting to P45 million, Ragodon’s office earned a net income of P22.8 million based on the audited financial statement last year.
