The CBMS Management Information System (MIS) is developed by the PSA to facilitate authorization of devices and personnel, assignment of workload and monitoring of progress of the 2023 CBMS operations.
This chapter discusses the CBMS MIS and provides instructions on how the users of the CBMS applications and systems can prepare their login credentials and devices for the 2023 CBMS CAPI implementation. During this phase, strong and stable internet connection is required.
For 2023 CBMS, only one (1) application shall be installed in the Android tablet of both the ENs and his/her supervisor. User and device registration come first before the data entry application can be accessed. During this phase, strong and stable internet connection is required.
The following are the instructions/steps on how to access the CBMS MIS.
TS and EN shall be registered in the MIS provided the following information: First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Extension Name, Email Address, Address (Region, Province, Municipality, Barangay), Complete Address, Contact Number and Role. Also, the personnel will be identified whether he/she is PSA or LGU hired.
The supervisor shall provide the system generated Username to TS/EN once registered in the MIS.
Through the MIS, a One Time Password (OTP) shall be sent to the registered mobile number of TS/EN.
To register the device, TS/EN shall provide to his/her respective supervisors the QR Code that can be generated by clicking the QR Code Icon on the upper right corner of the screen.
After successful device registration, the user will log-in using the provided Username and OTP as his/her password. After logging in, the user will change his/her password. The user is advised to keep a copy of his/her new password for reference.
Once registered, HCAS shall assign the workload of every user through the MIS.
The user can now download his/her workload by clicking the three vertical dots on the upper right corner of the screen, functions for downloading the workload and geoPackage will appear right after. These two functions will be clicked by the enumerator to download his/her workload and reference map. After the successful downloading of the mentioned files, the user can now select his/her city/municipality, barangay, and EA.
