NVizcaya implements biometric attendance for employees

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (5 October) -– Goodbye bundy clocks. Hello biometric machines.

In a bid to instill punctuality, honesty and discipline among local government employees here, the provincial government recently launched the Biometric Attendance System (BAS) within the provincial capitol compound.

Governor Luisa Cuaresma issued Executive Order No. C-237 Series of 2006 establishing the BAS.

In issuing the order, Cuaresma said the provincial government has been losing a significant amount of money annually due to the buddy punching under the current system of recording attendance using the Bundy clock.

The system, officials said was designed to improve the delivery of public service in the province by improving the employees’ attendance through the use of biometric technology, minimize fraud in the government by ensuring that only officers and employees who actually render services based on their Daily Time Record (DTR) shall be paid and to instill honesty and discipline among the more than 800 employees of the provincial government.

Ma. Carla Lucia Torralba, provincial human resource management officer said the new system would prevent 20 to 30 percent of salaries lost by each office through the Bundy clock.

“We are now on the dry run and we expect a lot of problems and resistance. But we will remedy these problems, anyway it’s a new system that is why it is still slow and we are begging for our cooperation because this is part of our reform agenda for government services to be better,” Torralba said.
