Barangay in Antique adopts local tech to improve document management

Barangay officials of Iguirindon, San Remigio, Antique took a step toward improving local governance and community development by embracing technology. On February 21, two (2) desktop computers installed with the Barangay Infosystem for Development and Accountability (BIDA) system and printers were turned over to the barangay.

Moreover, a hands-on training session was conducted by partners from the University of Antique (UA) to equip the officials with knowledge and skills to navigate the system.

BIDA is a system developed by the Department of Science and Technology Region VI (DOST VI) to strengthen the governance in the barangay and provide them with a platform that makes the preparation and issuance of various documents more efficient. The assistance was provided under DOST’s Community Empowerment thru Science and Technology (CEST) Program.(TFBYnion/Photos by EDABut/AntiquePSTO)
