In accordance with Republic Act 11055 or the Philippine Identification System Act, which aims to establish a single national ID for all Filipinos, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Aurora conducted a two-day mobile National ID Registration Activity for Aurora State College of Technology’s (ASCOT) employees with their families and relatives at the College’s Accreditation Hall, General Education Building, August 16-17.

This mobile registration was spearheaded by PSA-Aurora in collaboration with ASCOT headed by the College President, Dr. Eutiquio L. Rotaquio, Jr., and the Vice President for Planning and Finance, Forester Michelle A. Resueño, through the initiative of the College’s Public Information Officer, Ms. Diana Rose P. De Mesa, of the Public Information, Publication, and Data Protection Office (PIPDPO) led by Director Sherwin B. Glorioso.

Each employee, together with their families, was given an assigned schedule for their registration wherein a maximum of seven registrants per “kit” was able to cater by the PSA per hour. Two “kits” were designated by the PSA for the said registration activity to handle a larger number of registrants on the given schedule.

The first step of the registration is the filling out of the forms that will consist of the registrants’ basic information to be encoded into the system. This also includes screening and logging into the logbook for a proper tallying of the number of registrants for the day. The second step is the encoding and completion of biometric information, including fingerprint, iris scan, and photograph. The information given by the registrants in Step 1 was entered into the PSA’s database and system.

The printed National ID will be received by the registrants to be delivered door-to-door after three to four months after the successful registration.

A total of 308 individual registrants from the College’s employees and their families successfully registered for the Philippine Identification System ID (PhilSys ID).

In a Facebook post, the College expresses its appreciation and thanks to PSA-Aurora for extending its services to the College by catering to registrants from the ASCOT Family during the two-day National ID Registration Activity.
