Implementation of National ID is Seen This Year
The National Identification System is on road to implementation with the last major procurement block expected to be hurdled soon before the end of the year, as per National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) said yesterday base on an article on Philstar.com.
Acting Director General Karl Chua of National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) says that the most of the procurement packages, except for the systems integrator, were already bid out and awarded and now we are already in the middle of procurement of the last package. He also says that once we are done with it's procurement and the development, we can begin the registration, subject to health conditions toward the end of the year.
Systems integrator that will ensure that major components of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) are seamlessly interconnected and fully functional, is the last major issue needed to be hurdled to pave the way for the mass registration into PhilSys this year.
Its contract for this project is anticipated for award in August.
