The Philippine Identification System, otherwise known as “PhilSys”, has been enacted into law through Republic Act No. 11055 of 2018. The PhilSys is a foundational identification (ID) system to provide a valid proof of identity for all citizens and resident aliens in the Philippines. Hence, it will simplify transactions by eliminating the need to present varied forms of identification with government or private sector. As a social and economic platform, PhilSys ID holders can expect that all transactions can be availed of through a seamless service delivery, administrative governance will be enhanced, hence reducing corruption, strengthening financial inclusion and promoting ease of doing business.
The Nueva Vizcaya State University, through the approved request of the OIC President Hon. Ruth Raña Padilla from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), did a two-day one-time PhilSys registration of its faculty and staff simultaneously in both campuses last August 10-11, 2021. Through the direction of Hon. Padilla, the PhilSys registration was smoothly carried out with utmost observance of health protocols to ensure safety of the registrants and the PSA staff as well. At the end of the two-day activity, the registration and acquisition of the PhilSys ID card were facilitated for not only all the NVSU personnel but some of their family members, retired NVSU employees and students.
Hon. Padilla deems it necessary for all NVSU teaching and non-teaching personnel to be registered with the PhilSys as public servants with the end in view that they will enjoy the benefits of holding a national ID card. Afterall, this one-time registration is a support to the government in enabling all Filipinos to be registered to the PhilSys.
