BACOOR, Cavite — A barangay digital registration system aimed at delivering public service, including distribution of coronavirus vaccines, under the new normal was launched by the city government of Bacoor on March 3.
The Barangay E-Governance and Information Network (BEGIN) will be used for conducting surveys, data-basing, disaster response operations, and implementation of national ID system, according to Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla.
The local chief executive, together with Liga ng mga Barangay (LnB) Federation President Rey Palabrica, led the system’s launching at the Bacoor Government Center (BGC) gymnasium.
“Marami sa atin ang nanibago at ang iba ay nahirapan na umangkop sa new normal way of governance natin na ito pero ang maganda hindi tayo tumitigil na matuto. Bukas tayo sa mga bagong kaalaman at teknolohiya para mas maging epektibo, mabilis at ligtas ang ating paghahatid serbisyo sa ating mga kababayan,” she said during the program.
Mercado-Revilla added the system fulfills their vision of transforming Bacoor into a smart city.
Meanwhile, at least 500 enumerators are set to conduct house-to-house visits around the city to start the survey and online registration for vaccines against COVID-19.
In November 2020, the city government also rolled out BOSS Online or Bacoor One Stop Shop for online payments of city hall taxes.
