Oroís computerization program a benchmark for Northern Samar
Cagayan de Oro City (18 October) -- Impressed with the cityís modern computerization system that interlinks main offices of the city hall, a 15-man delegation from the provincial government of Northern Samar has shown keen interest to emulate the salient features of the cityís computerization program in their locality.
Neciforo Rubenecia, Jr., the groupís team leader and Northern Samarís Provincial Planning Development Coordinator, said that their recent visit in the city aims to get first-hand information on how to replicate the cityís best practices and programs especially in the area of computerization and information system on the collection of real property and business tax, hospital, human resource, project monitoring and agriculture.
The group is mostly composed of department heads, chiefs of office and some technical staff who will then be tasked to implement and oversee the realization of the replicable programs in their province.
During their one and half day visit, concerned departments and offices at city hall taught the group on how Cagayan de Oro set-up and run its information system networking in order to serve the clientele with faster delivery of frontline services.
Based on their observation, Rubenecia said the exposure is very informative and helpful to their needs along technical innovation and management information.
Among the best practices they learned from the city, the efficiency of the cityís real property tax system is what the group wants to adopt in Northern Samar since it is one of the most important frontline services in their province.
He said that the provincial government will attempt to develop software that would fit the actual needs of their clientele.
