The objective of this study is to evaluate the technology management practices among electric cooperatives. It also discusses the basic management functions of planning, organizing, directing, controlling, and evaluating practices among the electric cooperatives.

The respondents of the study are the identified rank in file workers of the 6 Electric Cooperatives with a total population of 445. This study used the mean and ordinal rank statistical tools in analysing the data. The data revealed that the technology management practices are much observed on factors of “Planning”, the highest got the mean of 3.71 “Evaluating”, second in rank with 3.60 mean, “Controlling” with mean of 3.59 and “Directing” with the mean of 3.55. However, the lowest is “Organizing” which got the mean of 3.56 and describe as much observed. The results implied that the employees observed much on the practices in the cooperatives that encourage them to perform their job and are encouraged to sustain their loyalty to their work for them to be able to provide basic services to their clientele.
