Island Garden City of Samal (IGaCoS) Mayor Al David T. Uy has signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) for the inclusion of the city in the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) pilot testing.
The MOA signing was held at Fernandez Beach and Garden Resort Wednesday, October 28, between Uy and PSA Region XI OIC- Regional Director Pepito Amoyen.
Uy expressed his gratitude for including the city in the pilot testing for the national ID registration as he also gave his full support on the PhilSys implementation.
Republic Act No. 11055 or the Philippine Identification System Act seeks to establish a single national identification system for residents and resident aliens of the Philippines and a seamless transaction on both public and private establishments.
The PhilSys pre-registration already started on October 12 with a target of 5 million IDs to be released this year.
