Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Rex Gatchalian observes the features of the newly-launched Finance and Management Service-For Your Information resource site as Director Wayne Belizar provides a walkthrough of the site during the project launch on Tuesday, February 14, 2023.

As a response to the directive of President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. to digitalize government processes, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), through its Finance and Management Service (FMS), launched on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, “FMS-FYI” (Finance and Management Service-For Your Information) page, a resource site that will serve as the repository of all finance and management-related resource of the DSWD.

The FMS-FYI, which was developed in collaboration with the DSWD Information and Communications Technology Management Service (ICTMS), can be accessed by various stakeholders to gather information and knowledge resources such as published news and press releases, copies of speeches and quote cards, photo and video gallery, announcements, downloadable forms, copies of issuances, and standard operating procedures of the FMS.

In his keynote speech, Secretary Rex Gatchalian expressed his support to the digitization initiative. “I am happy that I got invited to a digital push initiated by the FMS itself. From my understanding, this is a homegrown program developed within the Department because we want to comply to the President’s directive to digitalize everything. Whenever I hear homegrown that means you are innovating by yourself,” Secretary Gatchalian said.

“You want to better yourselves, you want to better the improvement in the delivery of services, that is why you made this homegrown FMS system and I’m very, very impressed because the very spirit, is the spirit of innovation, the spirit of wanting to be better than what we are,” the Secretary added.

The DSWD expressed hope that internal staff and other stakeholders will be able to efficiently utilize the FMS-FYI resource site on all DSWD finance-related concerns.

To visit the FMS Resource Site, the public may access it though bit.ly/FMSFYI.
