The Regional Adaptive Technology Center (RATC) was, by BOR Resolution No. 128, Series of 1989, consolidated with Southern Philippines Center for Peace Studies (SPCPS) creating thereby the Extension Office (UESC of the Main Campus). However, with the passage by the Philippine Congress of Republic Act (RA) No. 10055 or the Philippine Technology transfer Act of 2009 and its Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) particularly Rules 1, 4, 10, 13, 22, 24 and 25, the RATC is now proposed to be separated from the UESC and create the new office of Technology and Innovation Center (TIC) with a corresponding creation of a sub-office, MSU Intellectual Property Office (MIPO), and Entrepreneurship Training and Promotion Office (ETPO). This is an RDE center under the supervision of the Vice Chancellor for Research, Extension and Development for purposes of aligning the OVCRED’s thrusts and programs with that of the National Government’s goals and economic agenda thru intensified university’s research, development and extension and technology transfer.
The TIC is responsible for programs, policies, strategies and procedures to identify, protect, manage, promote, commercialize and develop the university’s technologies and innovations by providing technical support through trainings and business strategies for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and would-be traders, technology business incubation to both private and public sectors when necessary, and assist faculty members and researchers in the protection, management and valuation of their IPs and IPR. The TIC is composed of three units with support personnel from realignment of OVCRED staff: Administrative and Support Staff Division (ASSD) supporting the Director and the other two units; ETPO which will provide technical support and business incubation for MSMEs; and MIPO which will assist in the identification and protection of research-generated technologies and innovations of MSU Main and its clientele. It is therefore, partly income-generating center of the university whose revenue shall be governed by Rule 22 of IRR for RA 10055 for use of the TIC activities.
