Armchair Analysis: My thoughts on Leni Robredo’s 40-page ICAD Report

As someone who has been doing Monitoring and Evaluation work for the past 5 years (3 years as an employee, 2 years commissioned work), let me share my insights on Leni Robredo’s much-awaited ICAD Report.

Pero bago ‘yun, mga personal hanash ko muna.

1. I find this report sobrang kulang sa pertinent facts and figures, and while Leni’s saying they used the data from PNP which is wrong, then why come up with a report in the first place?

2. Ang sabog ng presentation ng report. Ang gulo basahin. Nonlinear postmodern ang approach ng narrative?

Ok fine.

First, it bothers me to read through a report na walang logical framework. Hindi ko maintindihan ‘yung report kasi puro ito reklamo, but it does not provide a structure on how these complaints become valid.

Sana you presented the report in a manner that it enumerates the overarching goals of ICAD, its desired activities, outputs, outcomes, and impact. Para may basis of understanding, both ang current situation ng ICAD at ng mga hanash mo.

Second, you are saying in your report the lack of consistent and uniform baseline data. Given that premise, you are bound to come up with an inconsistent and messed-up report as well. Since you were already in the post as co-chair, why didn’t you take the initiative to do your own baseline analysis, since yan naman ang core work ng mga mahilig mang-hanash?

Three, I understand that as co-chair, you tried to act as an overseer to equal PDEA’s Aaron Aquino. The ICAD is comprised of different clusters, so all of them should have been given your attention. But it seems in the report that you only looked at the most controversial areas, i.e. police operations, funding, and policy analysis. All other cluster work was only mentioned in passing, but were stated alongside your claim that they lack equal commitment and initiative. Ano ba ang basihan mo dun? Did you sit down with all involved agencies and went through their activities, outputs, and achieved outcomes? Did you ask about their issues and opportunities for improvement? If so, then asan sila sa report?

Four, may malinaw na concept ka ba ng amendments sa community-based approach drug rehabilitation? Pa-outline ng steps based on your perspective for better understanding.

Five, asan ba talamak ang drugs? Sa mall? O sa kalsada? Sana kasi nasa mall para mall raids ang ginagawa ng PDEA.

Six, maganda yung recommendations part, pero walang bago. It’s just like you echoed the core goals ng ICAD. Nag-copy paste ka lang ba?

Seven, with regards to supply constriction: I suggest manood ka ng Narcos, Breaking Bad, at Queen of the South for a better understanding of how drug supply operations work. Kasi napaka-theoretical ng recommendations mo pero yung in-depth application, kulang.

Overall, kulang ng pasabog ang presentation. At inis na inis ako dahil walang LogFrame o kahit man lang theory of change. Sayang yung three weeks ni Leni as ICAD co-chair. Feeling niya hindi siya kasali sa committee then sana umarte na lang siyang full-fledged tagahanap ng butas.

What’s the purpose of this report nga pala? Taking away all the motherhood statements inserted in this section, wala na halos natira sa “statement of purpose” niya.

Seryoso, who wrote this report?
