GENERAL SANTOS ITY (March 27, 2015) – In its continuing effort to enhance the features of Accountable Forms Monitoring System (LG-AFMS) which was developed in 2014 for the City Treasurer’s Office (CTO) Accountable Forms Section, the ICTD system development team synchronized the actual inventory list of accountable forms against the electronic records contained in the system.
LG-AFMS is an in-house developed computer application system directly supervised by Leo nard Pe, IT Officer I, with Kent Nino Paler, Computer Operator I who acts as the lead programmer in this on-going development. A stringent SDLC or the software development life cycle is being followed by the team aos a service standard of practice where each phase of the cycle is carried out by different teams, that is, from the assessment to designing, from programming to testing, from user’s training to monitoring using various quality assurance tools.
According to Percival Pasuelo, IT Officer II, AFMS is like a point-of-sale (POS) system where items in a form of official receipts are ‘sold’ to clients like the collectors and other government agencies. If there is a sale, inventory follows, thus, making it similar to POS. Other objectives of the project include the efficient management of official receipts issued to collectors and released to clients thereby effectively tagging the receipts to specific collector.
The system analysis and design was handled by Roy Detoyato, Data Controller II, and designated as ISA for all the system development projects of ICTD. Ana Lou Buyco and Irene Casipe, both Computer Programmer I, did the series of quality assurance processes and assisted by Charles Henry Lumba, Admin Assistant. AFMS is another mission-critical system of ICTD as CTO Collection Systems are dependent to the Electronic lists of official receipts being issued. Without AFMS, collection system cannot be implemented effectively.
Elsie Oftana, CTO AF Section Head spearheads other users in the adaptation from the manual to the automated system while OIC City Treasurer Rodilon Lacap, CPA, supports 100% the endeavors of ICTD where he gave his go-ahead signal in 2014.
