The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) has awarded the P1.6-billion Civil Registry System – Information Technology Project (Phase II) to its sole bidder Unisys Public Sector Services Corp.
Earlier, the state's Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center had pre-qualified two other bidders including Morpho-Filetrics-Frey Consortium and PNJ Partnership Consortium. However, only Unisys was able to comply with all the technical and financial proposal requirements for the project.
The Civil Registry project involves the computerization of the civil registry operations of the PSA and is designed to collect, access, store, maintain and manage civil registry documents and the specimen signatures of all city and municipal registrars using imaging technology. It also includes the production of vital statistics as well as the making of the civil registry services available nationwide through the CRS outlets and other authorized partners. The CRS-ITP2 will also include the construction of a building that will house the servers of the information technology system.
The project is estimated to take two years to complete.
Currently, PSA has 40 CSR outlets servicing claims for civil registry documents. Once the project is finished, an additional 40 CSR outlets would be established nationwide.
