BANGUED, Abra, April 12 (PIA) – Data banking is vital in planning development programs and projects to ensure responsiveness of such programs to real needs and problems of communities and effectiveness of implementation.

This is the main goal of the training program on Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) Accelerated Poverty Profiling (APP) being conducted by the Department of Interior and Local Government-Cordillera Administrative Region (DILG-CAR) to local government units in the province.

Participants in CBMS Training are local  employees of the municipalities of Dolores, Malibcong, Penarrubia and Danglas. 

The first module is orientation on how to use the gadgets and how to administer the survey questionnaires conducted at the Origines Hotel at Brgy. Calaba, Bangued on April 3 – 7.

This is followed by the actual conduct of data collection using the CBMS software dubbed as CBMS Scan.  The data collection is expected to be carried out in one month.

The questionnaire is set inside the CBMS Scan, the software being used in the survey. The CBMS Scan fast-tracks data collection and processing by encoding data while interviewing the household respondents. The location of the household is taken at the same time by getting the GPS data using Android tablets. It also features security measures to maintain confidentiality of information while facilitating census management.

The participants are likewise taught on how to install and open the CBMS Scan including the menu of CBMS app and the registration of the mobile devices.

The training is a tripartite activity among the DILG-Bureau of Local Government Development, the CBMS International Network Coordinating Team, and the 4 LGUs concerned. The training team in Abra is headed by Rolando Gonzales of the DILG-CAR. (JDP/MTBB – PIA CAR, Abra)
