S-PASS will soon be fully implemented in the province of Pangasinan.
This developed after an updated presentation of different members of the Technical Working Group of Pangasinan was conducted during a regular meeting on April 21.
Ms. Avenix Arenas who represented PDRRMO Rhodyn Luchinvar O. Oro, said it is the objective of the Provincial Government of Pangasinan led by Governor Amado I. Espino III to safeguard the province and prioritize the welfare of the people in this time of pandemic.
During the meeting, the Management Information Services Office (MISO) presented an update regarding the implementation of S-PASS in Pangasinan.
S-PASS (Safe, Swift and Smart Passage) is a new paperless app launched by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) that offers a convenient and safe way to process travel authority online for local travelers. It will also help and benefit LGUs in recording and monitoring in real time, traveler’s information or those going in and out of their respective localities.
As presented by JAY-R dela Pena, MISO computer programmer, S-PASS is currently implemented by 20 local government units (LGUs) in the province.
Dela Pena stated that each LGU has corresponding focal person for the said project. In the case of LGU-Pangasinan, MISO chief Modesto Singson is the assigned focal person.
The following are the step by step process on using S-PASS to travelers: 1) register account on s-pass.ph, 2) log in account using phone number, 3) check for travel protocol and restriction, 4) apply for travel coordination permit, 5) upload photo/scanned copy of requirements needed, 6) wait for the application to be approved for a maximum of two days, 7) save/print your approved travel coordination permit (TCP), present your TCP to the checkpoint to scan.
To fully cascade the information regarding the full implementation of S-PASS, the PDRRMO will continuously conduct orientation briefings on different sectors to include the law enforcement groups, among others.
S-PASS Infographics will soon be posted at the official Facebook account of the province as well as in the PDRRMO page and other line agencies. (/Ruby R. Bernardino)
