In a follow up to their consultative meeting with the World Bank (WB) and the Department of Interior and Local Government, the city’s Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS) Team and Joint Inspection Team participated in a workshop aimed at further simplifying the process for opening up a business.

As facilitated by WB Consultant Glenn Ymata, the participants first assessed the current BPLS that was presented by Licensing Officer Arden Cuenco. It was during this process that the participants were able to trace as to which parts of the current BPLS where delays and long waits usually occur.

This enabled them to identify steps to ensure that the new BPLS shall consist of only a maximum of five (5) days – to involve only one (1) application form, one (1) inspection, one (1) assessment, one (1) payment, one (1) signatory and can be completed in a maximum of five (5) days – which are the conditions set in the Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) issued by the DILG and the Department of Trade and Industry in 2010.

The proponents of this new design are also planning to make use of a system through a computer program that will merge certain steps to minimize the paper trail and make the procedure quicker and easier for the clients.

Also present during the workshop were Information Technology Officer Melchizedek Yap and Licensing Officer Emilio Tingson

from the Local Government Unit of Ormoc City, to share their experiences – including the challenges and gains that they encountered in simplifying their own BPLS. Plans are now in the works to forge a partnership with LGU-Ormoc for the adoption of their system as a best practice model for the city.

To conclude the workshop, the participants created a timeline of activities– including the training of needed personnel, preparation of computers and database, issuance of legal documents and the like – that will facilitate the full implementation and institutionalization of the new BPLS.
