The Department of Science and Technology-Advance Science and Technology Institute and the Anti-Red Tape Authority signed a memorandum of agreement on a human resource management project.

DOST-ASTI Director Franz de Leon and Anti-Red Tape Authority Director General Ernesto Perez, represented by ARTA North Luzon Director Rodolfo del Rosario Jr., led the MOA signing for the HR Lite Project during the DOST-ASTI’s 5th Regional Stakeholders’ Forum and Business to Business meeting recently.

Designed and developed by ASTI, HR Lite is a re-engineered version of Enterprise Resource Planning that is highly adaptive to the human resource context, structure, and processes of many government agencies.  

It helps facilitate human resource-related processes online.

It features the combination of integrating science and technology with the law, to transforming the way the government serves its citizens.

Perez, in a message read by del Rosario, expressed ARTA’s gratitude to DOST-ASTI for the partnership that is anchored on the directive of President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. to improve bureaucratic efficiency under the administration’s socio economic agenda.

The DOST-ASTI has also partnered with Philippine Space Agency, Philippine Statistics Authority, EC Solutions Enterprise, and the local government units of Cavite and Antipolo City for the use of HR Lite.

During the regional stakeholders meeting, the DOST-ASTI also signed a MOA for partnerships on its other  technology transfer initiatives  such as “The Resilient Education and Information Infrastructure for the New Normal”, “Quantum Circuit Simulation”, “Meteorological Data Acquisitions Stations for Information Dissemination”,  and “KOOHA.”

Cordillera stakeholders were also provided with technology pitching of DOST-ASTI’s emerging technologies for validation and partnership.

De Leon said the regional gathering with the theme, “Breaking barriers between scientific knowledge, emerging technologies, and the people” marks a significant milestone in their agency’s journey towards, innovation, collaboration, and technology transfer which are relevant to the people. “Today, as we focus our attention on technology transfer by establishing partnerships, and collaboration not only in urban areas but also in rural communities, we recognize the significance of building alliances with the Filipino-owned micro, small and medium enterprises to create employment opportunities for our people,” he said. – Carlito Dar
