"Going Beyond the Boundaries of Our University In Service of the Community"
In partnership with the CBMS Network Coordinating Team of De La Salle University in Manila and the local government of the Municipality of Bongabon, the College of Information and Communications Technology conducted surveys in the said municipality using the app Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS). Graduating students who are specializing in Networking Administration and Design were tapped to administrate the survey to the residents of Bongabon, Nueva Nueva Ecija in the month of January 2016, consisting of eight batches dispatched throughout the community with each having two (2) days to make their rounds in their assigned barangays.
Using the said app, Networking majors were tasked to conduct general census and surveys questions to gather information from the citizens of Bongabon such as occupation, no. of children, and available household appliances. The CBMS app was installed in each participating student’s own smartphone or tablet, where they could just select the appropriate checkbox corresponding to the answer of the concerned respondents.
The Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) is an organized process of data collection and processing at the local level and of integration of data in local planning, program implementation and impact-monitoring. It is a system that promotes evidence-based policymaking and program implementation while empowering communities to participate in the process.
