The newly hired and re-hired Encoders-Verifiers of the National Household Targeting Unit (NHTU) / Listahanan of the Department of Social Welfare and Development – Field Office 1 (DSWD-FO1) will complete the encoding and verifying of the remaining 193,858 Family Assessment Forms (FAF) from the 2nd Round of Household Assessment.

In the recently held one-day orientation of Encoders-Verifiers, DSWD-FO1 Regional Director Marcelo Nicomedes J. Castillo welcomed the Listahanan staff and advised them to not just think on the speed of encoding/verifying of FAFs. “Importante ang bawat FAF na mai-encode sa system ay tama dahil makakatulong kayo sa mga benepisyaryo na maaaring makatanggap ng serbisyo hindi lang dito sa Departamento kundi sa kabuuan ng pamahalaan (It is important that each FAF encoded/verified in the system is correct because all of you (encoders-verifiers) can help the soon-to-be beneficiaries of services not only from the Department but also across the government)”, Dir. Castillo added.

DSWD-FO1 Assistant Regional Director for Administration Nora D. Dela Paz also attended the said orientation and challenged the Listahanan staff to give their best performance at work and to be diligent in encoding and verifying so that the output would have integrity.
