Statistics office’s online query system to open in civil offices-A A +A
Wednesday, January 25, 2012
AFTER a four-month long pilot testing, the National Statistics Office’s (NSO) OnDDot Query Service (ODDQS) will now be shared to the different Local Civil Registry Offices (LCROs) nationwide.
The ODDQS is a web or Internet-based service system which provides the latest status of transactions paid at any Census Serbilis Outlet and forwarded to the Civil Registration Department of NSO in Quezon City.
Such service facility applies to all documents that are endorsed bearing the effects of court decrees, legal instruments, supplemental reports and/or other laws that affect the status of any individual.
Thus the system includes legitimation, acknowledgement, adoption, annulment, nullity of marriage, clerical error, change of first name and other legal instruments/court decrees affecting an individual’s civil status.
NSO Regional Director Olivia Gulla, in an interview, stressed that the ODDQS, which will be implemented in Cordillera starting February 1, will allow all civil registrars or LCROs to directly inquire or access the status of client’s request in their respective areas.
“This new system or service is also a remedial measure to de-clog any NSO outlet or service area of the increasing number of clients and will also partly solve the human resource constraints that is currently besetting our regional office”, Gulla said.
“With ODDQS, local civil registrars shall have the option to directly submit their requests to the Office of the Civil Registrar General at the NSO Quezon City Office or through the NSO Provincial Office in their areas for endorsement of such request for priority loading,” Gulla added.
According to Gulla, to access the ODDQS, each LCRO is required to register online for better monitoring and usage assessment of the said query system. (Lito Dar)
