Statistics body needs 140 workers in Malolos

Malolos―The Bulacan office of the Philippine Statistics Authority needs at least 140 personnel to gather basic information for the implementation of the National Identification System in the province.

This was disclosed by Julieta Gapate, PSA-Bulacan registration officer, during a radio interview Wednesday at Radyo Bulacan 103.9FM anchored by Philippine Information Agency hosts Vince Concepcion and Shane Velasco.

Interested applicants are advised to submit their resume and application letters at the PSA-Bulacan, Villa Reyna Resort, Barangay Catmon, Malolos City until Feb. 28.

Gapate said applicants who have at least a four-year college degree are eligible to apply as Registration Officers. Those who have Civil Service Commission eligibility will be given preference.

However, those who have at least two years in college or technical vocational degrees can also apply as Data Encoders.

Forty of the 140 vacant slots are for registration officers (starting with Salary Grade 14) who will be assured of becoming permanent employees, while the remaining 100 will serve as encoders. 

Twenty teams will be formed to go down to the barangay level for data gathering, Gapate said.

The national ID System will be implemented starting this May as embodied under Republic Act 11055 or the Philippine Identification System Act of 2018. Orlan Mauricio

The system aims to unify in just one ID card all basic information about a person’s identity, which is mandated by law to be honored by both private and government offices.

The ID card will be given free to all and will include the name, sex, date of bith, blood type, address, marital status, contact number and e-mail address, fingerprint and picture of the holder. Orlan Mauricio
