University Business Affairs
The University operates income generating projects (IGPs) under the University Business Affairs (UBA) Office to supplement the annual subsidy it receives from the General Appropriations Act (GAA). These resource generation programs are vigorously pursued and are aimed at sustaining IGPs with 10% ROI, pursue corporatization, and initiating build-operate-lease projects. It also aims to build the University into an ecotourism destination since the IGPs present a unique learning opportunity for tourists as well as a training ground for students in the colleges of Agriculture, Home Economics and Technology and Veterinary Medicine.
These IGP's generate income from agri-based and non-agri-based sources. Additional revenues come from special projects and instruction-based activities like conduct of professional review classes and the intensive functional English courses for foreign students.
To strengthen the performance of profitable IGPs, the University continues to expand its current ventures, construct additional greenhouses for high-value crop production, and procure or upgrade equipment.
As in other functions of the University, monitoring and evaluation activities ensure the profitability and sustainability of all IGPs.
