The online services of the different govenrnment agencies of the Philippines is growing fast. Checking your board exam results or applying for PAGIBIG loans can now be done online. This may seem good but some are still not feeling the effect this modernization should bring.
When some of my collegues took the Licensure Examination for Teachers, they waited for the results to come out by checking the website of the Professional Regulation Commision. This is not new because PRC has been releasing the list of LET passers through their website for several years already. What surprised me is when my collegues asked me to share my SmartBro internet connection so that they can check their LET rating.
They then find out that they can alreacy register online for the oath taking ceremony. They were relieved because they do not have to travel to Tacloban City just to register for the Oath Taking ceremony.
If not for the online services of PRC, they would have to endure the agony of not knowing your LET rating until they go to Tacloban and be absent for a working day or two.
It’s not just the PRC that’s embracing the technology to serve us better. PAG-ASA and PHILVOLCS are continually updating their Facebook and Twitter accounts for natural disasters. You can even email the different agencies for your concerns.
The Philippines is not all bad. Putting up the websites that serve the Filipino people is not an easy task. Believe me because I build websites for additional income.
Here is a list of the different online services of the Government of the Philippines:
- PAG-IBIG Online Registration. Register as a member of the PAG-IBIG and email them for your contributions.
- PRC Online Registration and Exam Results. PRC offers online registration for board exams, board exam results, registration for oath taking and Exam rating inquiry.
- PAG-ASA and PHILVOLCS. Like these two agencies on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for updates of different natural calamities like typhoons and earthquakes.
- Project NOAH. This is somewhat related to PAG-ASA and is relatively new. Project NOAH monitors the water levels of the different dams, catch basin areas and coastal areas for warnings of flooding. It also tracks typhoons and other weather disturbances.
- Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines. Although Chan Robles has given has enough Law Resources, there is still nothing compared to the official gazette of our country that hosts different collection of laws, decrees, announcements and other official papers of the government.
