As of 3 May 2024, all 23 Local Government Units (LGUs) in the Province of Ilocos Norte now have Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on Data Sharing with Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).

LGUs are encouraged to enter into MOA on 4Ps Data Sharing to ensure hassle-free exchange of data in the implementation of the program parallel to Republic Act No. 10173, otherwise known as the Data Privacy Act of 2012.

Readily accessible 4Ps data shall hasten the provision of appropriate and timely interventions to 4Ps household beneficiaries giving high regard to Social Welfare and Development Indicators (SWDI) gaps. This warrants improved level of well-being among 4Ps household beneficiaries. This call for stronger partnership commenced during the 4Ps Partnership Summit 2022. To date, there are already 75 LGUs with MOA on 4Ps Data Sharing regionwide.

All remaining LGUs, including the Provincial Governments, are heeded to engage and submit the document to be a step closer in achieving the goals and objectives of the 4Ps. (by: Mark Theodore M. Mamuyac, 4Ps Institutional Partnership Development Officer for LGUs)
