On-going Projects

The Department of Health is implementing the Philippines COVID-19 Emergency Response Project (PCERP) funded by the World Bank to strengthen the capacity of the Philippines to prevent, detect, and respond to the threat posed by COVID-19 and to scale up the national systems for public preparedness. DOH commissioned ASPSI to determine the COVID-19 vaccination coverage (regardless of vaccine brand) among the Indigenous Cultural Communities/Indigenous Peoples (ICC/IPs) in the select regions, in accordance with the National COVID-19 Vaccine Deployment and Vaccination Plan (NDVP). This project started in July 15, 2022 and is targeted to be completed in May 14, 2023.

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) through the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) contracted Asian Social Project Services, Inc. (ASPSI) to Conduct an Endline Survey for the Impact Evaluation of the Convergence on Value Chain Enhancement for Rural Growth and Empowerment (ConVERGE) Project. The study aims to evaluate the same indicators as in the baseline survey and to determine the beneficiaries’ feedback on the given interventions. Specifically, the following indicators will be measured: income level; asset ownership; household size; sources of income; nutritional status; food intake; food security; access to and utilization of production technologies; production inputs; credit; agriculture support infrastructure; market; and policy environment.

The Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC) commissioned ASPSI to implement the Consulting Services for the Baseline Study of Agri-Negosyo Loan (ANYO) and Kapital Access for Young Agripreneurs (KAYA) Programs. The study aims to collect baseline data on specific indicators that will establish reference for monitoring and evaluating the ANYO and KAYA programs during and after implementation for assessing changes and impact among program participants.

The Department of Agriculture (DA) through the Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC) implemented the Production Loan Easy Access (PLEA) and the Survival and Recovery Assistance (SURE) Program to help the small farmers and fisherfolks (SFF) increase their production and income and facilitate the rehabilitation of the farming and or fishing livelihood activities. To determine to whatextent the PLEA and the SURE Programs have succeeded in meeting their respective program objectives, the ACPC commissioned the ASPSI to conduct the Mid-term Evaluation of the PLEA and SURE Assistance Programs.

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) commissioned the ASPSI to conduct an Evaluation Study on the Implementation of the Policy on Alternative Work Arrangements amidst the Continuing Pandemic in Selected Government Agencies and LGUs in NCR. The study will look at the following: 1) services provided by the agencies that have always been provided through digitalization to understand to what extent these services continued and the factors that contributed to any disruptions; 2) services traditionally offered in-person and the extent to which they were able to adapt to alternative work arrangements; and 3) measures that the agencies put in place to respond to the needs of their employees to transition to the new normal and how much was required for your local government to COVIDproof the workplace.
