Alaminos civil registry broadens public service
The Alaminos government has inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the National Statistics Office (NSO) for the Batch Request Entry Query System (BREQS) to further provide more extensive and accessible services to its constituents.
The MOA was signed by Mayor Hernani A. Braganza and Engr. Alfredo Batoy, NSO Regional Director at the office of the former last January 26.
City civil registrar Reynaldo Castro and provincial statistics officer Dante Pescador witnessed the signing of the document.
Castro said the BREQS-LGU System virtually widens the civil registry’s services to the people including those who have been registered in other localities.
He said with the new scheme, the city government is given an authority by NSO to use the system.
The BREQS-LGU System processes birth, death or marriage documents, copies of NSO annotated or endorsed documents and certificates of no record of marriage.
With the said system, the city civil registrar receive requests from the public for NSO-issued copies including certifications of civil registry documents and release them on security paper issued by the on-line Census Service Bilis Centers (Serbilis Outlets).
Serbilis Outlets has been established by NSO, through the Civil Registry System IT (CRS-IT) Project in different parts of the country to serve as service points for the decentralized servicing of requests for civil registry documents from the public.
“What matters most is the importance and convenience the system is giving to our clientele,” stressed Braganza.
“It is also our national and local government’s way of bringing its services closer to our constituents,” he added.
rThe mayor said that with BREQS “our city, district and provincemates need not to go far to secure the civil registry documents they need, thereby saving much of their money, time and effort”.
Under the agreement, NSO will assign Serbilis Outlet in Alaminos to service BREQS from the public.
The MOA also explicitly stated other responsibilities of NSO and the city government foremost of which is the complete set of parameters required to use the application software, the designation of responsible officer to act as BREQS operation’s manager, the NSO software warranty and other technical support on the proper use of the software.
The BREQS-LGU system is set to be implemented starting this February 2, 2009.(CIO)
