NEDA XI hosted an on-site Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) Institutional Registration conducted by Philippine Statistics Office on November 8, 2021 at NEDA-RDC XI Center, Bangkal, Davao City. The goal of the activity is for all NEDA XI staff and their close kin to be afforded a safe and convenient way of securing their Philippine Identification (PhilID) card.

PhilSys is a NEDA project which is part of the government’s initiative to establish a national identification system for Filipinos which would then be used as a platform to simplify public and private transactions and services. PhilID card is now accepted as sufficient proof of identity of the cardholder in all transactions in the NEDA without the need to present other forms of identification.

There was a total of 143 participants, including 42 NEDA XI employees and contract service workers and 101 other individuals, who were successfully registered to PhilSys, following strict adherence to minimum public health standards at NEDA XI.
