PRC, DOLE ink MOA on on-line verification of professionals

by Lito Dar

Baguio City (1 May) -- The Philippine Regulatory Commission - Baguio Regional Office (PRC-BRO) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-CAR) signed a Memorandum on Agreement (MOA), for the utilization of PRC's On-line Verification of Eligibility System (OVES) on DOLE's Jobs Fair, Employment Services and Nurses Assigned to Rural Areas (NARS) program.

The said agreement was signed during the Labor Day Jobs Live Forum last Thursday by PRC-BRO Director Teofilo Gaius Sison Jr. and DOLE Regional Director, Atty. Ana Dione. The signing was witnessed by DOLE Asst. Regional Director Sixto Rodriguez and PRC Executive Assistant Nitz Domogen.

According to Dione, the agreement is a collaboration of PRC and DOLE on the verification of professional licenses. Thru this, employment companies can now have an easy verification access of the PRC data base even through the DOLE.

Sison explained that the OVES is an on-line verification which offers a fast, reliable, secure and economical access to the PRC's Central Office Data Base of professionals.

The PRC-BRO is the biggest PRC Regional Office, with the biggest number of examinees and registering professionals for the last four years, serving three regions of Central and Northern Luzon.

"Through OVES, we can protect public health, welfare and safety. We can prevent fake professionals from being employed both in the government bureaucracy and private companies," Sison said.

The MOA stated that OVES is PRC's "Alay sa Pilipinong Propesyonal" program contribution to the celebration of Labor Day, in order to help the DOLE ensure that only genuine professionals are gainfully employed.

The DOLE will utilize the OVES on its Jobs Fair Programs to facilitate the verification of credentials of professionals applying for employment. It will also be used for the recruitment and selection of applicants in the DOLE's NARS project, which they are jointly implementing with the Department of Health (DOH) and PRC-Board of Nursing.

For faster, reliable economical and secure verification process, and in pursuant to the Anti-Red Tape Act, the OVES was developed in the second semester of 2009 and was pilot-tested in partnership with the Civil Service Commission last February 16, 2010.

Through the OVES, seven professionals from CAR, Ilocos Region and Cagayan Valley, some of them handling sensitive positions in government schools and hospitals, were discovered to have fake licenses.

Also present during the signing were officials and representatives of Labor Day Jobs Fair partners, from government line-agencies and private companies, such as the City PESO, OWWA, POEA, DTI, CHED, PEZA-Baguio, SM and PLDT. (PIA) [top]
