Budget will be allocated and transferred to the Field Offices for the printing of training materials for PSA-funded areas. LGUs shall cover the printing of training materials for the cities and municipalities that they fund for operations.
10.3 Data Processing Center
The following are the guidelines in establishing the Provincial Data Processing Center (DPC):
10.3.1 Networking and Other Requirements
- All Provincial Statistical Offices shall establish a DPC dedicated to CMBS data processing
- The provincial office should ensure the availability of desktop computers for use as workstations of data and map processors and server during the CMBS data processing. The workstations of the data processors and map data processors should be connected to a data server.
- The DPC should be equipped with a stable connection to the internet to enable the downloading and uploading of files.
- The hired Information System Analyst, assisted by the PSO staff, should take charge of the setting up of the DPC. They should ensure that all workstations are connected to the data server and have all the necessary applications installed. Instructions for the setting up of the data processing center will be issued by the ITDS on 26 September 2022.
- Assistance in the setting up of the DPC for CBMS may be requested from the RSSOs and/or ITDS. Queries can be reported via the CBMS Management Information System (MIS) Forum.
- Any other concerns or requests should be sent to [email@example.com](firstname.lastname@example.org) and [email@example.com](firstname.lastname@example.org).
Proper documentation for PC/ICT equipment/device accountability as well as contracts and oaths of data privacy of CBMS hired personnel should be prepared, and kept secured by the PSA provincial offices.
PSA field office personnel shall be present at all times during the DPC office hours. ISA / SS II / SSS and other alternate CBMS data processing focal persons in the PSA provincial office may be assigned to oversee DPC operations.
10.3.2 Location/Space for the Data Processing Center
- Generally, the DPC shall be located within the PSO premises or in a space adjacent or nearby.
- Security of the DPC should be ensured to protect the electronic data files, paper questionnaires/forms, shapefiles, paper maps, equipment, and other documents/materials, as well as the personnel who will be working in the area.
- The DPC may also be located in a space or building within the city/municipality LGU buildings as the case may be. However, the PSO shall ensure that the space or building should have stable, secure, and reliable network connections that are necessary for the smooth conduct of the data and map processing activities. Likewise, the same security measures mentioned above shall be applied to satellite DPCs. The setting up of a centralized DPC or satellite DPCs in cities or municipalities funded by LGUs shall be coordinated by the PSA field offices with concerned LGUs.
- If there is a need to rent a space for use as DPC, this should be properly communicated first for approval through channels. The budget for rental of office space for the 2022 CBMS is limited. Hence, all RDs should evaluate the request very carefully before endorsement to the CO for further evaluation and approval.
- The address of the DPC should be submitted to the CBSS through email addresses: [email@example.com](firstname.lastname@example.org), [email@example.com](firstname.lastname@example.org), copy-furnished the [email@example.com](firstname.lastname@example.org).
