RapidPassPH OPERATIONS TO BE TURNED OVER TO DOST, DICT, PNP

With the successful completion of RapidPassPH 1.0, the Department of Science and Technology, Department of Information and Communications Technology, and the Philippine National Police will now manage the operations of RapidPassPH.

The PNP Joint Task Force COVID Shield, led by Police Lt. General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, will enforce the full implementation of RapidPassPH throughout the Quarantine Control Points of Metro Manila. To facilitate the implementation, PLDT donated 540 phones as scanners for the checkpoints.

RapidPassPH was created to streamline movement through checkpoints for frontliners and essential goods. The system enables frontliners to easily acquire quarantine passes that can be used to quickly pass through QCPs. The system also ensures that only authorized frontliners, skeletal workforces, and essential goods will be able to pass through.

Due to the urgent need brought about by the COVID-19 situation the system was built in under 30 days. This was achieved with the monumental efforts of the DCTx volunteers and a strong partnership with DOST, DICT, AFP and PNP.

The RapidPassPH Coordination Group, formed by DOST, DICT, PNP, and DEVCON, will ensure the continuous and effective operation and implementation of RapidPassPH.

DOST Secretary Fortunato T. de la Pena expressed his gratitude.to the volunteers for their efforts in the collaboration.

“We would like to thank the DEVCON volunteers for coming up with this innovative solution which has eased the burden for our personnel in quarantine checkpoints and we would like to thank our partners, DICT, PNP, and DOST-NCR for working together in deploying RapidPass, and we thank our partners from the private sector, Microsoft, PLDT and SM, for donating phones to be used by PNP personnel at QCPs and bandwidth for the operation of RapidPass” he said.

RapidPassPH will continue to receive updates and system improvements from DCTx as the country continues to implement different versions of community quarantines. After the turnover, DCTx will continue to focus on other projects still in development that will support the frontliners and the Filipino people against COVID-19.

We would like to thank our partners, sponsors and contributors for their continuous support.
