UP Visayas will sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Interior and Local Government Region 6 to upgrade its Management Information System (DILG-UPV MIS) on April 23, 2021.
Among others, DILG is mandated to establish and prescribe plans, policies, programs, and projects to strengthen further the administrative, technical, and fiscal capabilities of the LGUs.
The LGUs will use the MIS for their comprehensive multi-sectoral development plan and public investment program. This data will include population and social services, economy, bio-physical base, existing infrastructure support, and the institutional services of the LGU.
DILG will provide funds for the upgrade of the MIS. At the same time, UPV will design the action plan for the expansion and upgrading of the system, maintain web hosting and provide technical support during the six-month project.
As a public service university, the MOA fulfills UPV’s mandate to provide various forms of public service and assistance to the community, including technical assistance to the government, private sector, civil society, while maintaining its standard of excellence as provided for in RA 9500 (the UP Charter).
