DSWD to validate 4Ps list hires validators, encoders

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol Sept 28 (PIA) – Over allegations that there are beneficiaries of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) who are far less deserving, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Central Visayas is shaving the list of beneficiaries.

Because of this, the DSWD opens up the position of some 62 validators and 15 data encoders for the massive validation project the DSWD implement for the governments conditional cash transfer program.

According to Aileen Lariba, 4Ps regional information officer, applicants for the 62 validators must have completed at least two years in college or must have finished a two year course.

As for the data 15 encoders, background on information technology (IT) and other IT related courses is a preference, she adds.

The DSWD, prefers that applicants of those two positions are not more than 50 years old and physically fit.

This is so because, once accepted, they will be fielded to project sites all over the region and will be deployed to provinces including far flung mountain villages for their validation tasks.

This as the government social service agency has received complaints of beneficiaries who may not qualify for the cash transfer, a situation which may have been a result of faulty data generated during the initial National Household Targeting System survey years ago.

Moreover, so much have happened between the survey enumeration and the time when the cash transfer was handed that may have drastically altered the living conditions of those who have been initially identified, explains Lariba during a session at the Kapihan sa PIA. 

Owing to the limited resources for the 4PS, the DSWD thinks it should trim its list so that the assistance goes to where it is most needed, the information officer explained.

Hired applicants will receive the minimum wage rate good for 15 days work including Saturdays and Sundays.

Interested applicants may submit their application letter, resume, TOR or Diploma to the DSWD office located at corners M.J. Cuenco Ave., and Gen.  Maxilum St., Cebu City.  

Or one may hand carry the application, fax it to (032) 2312172/ 4129908 or email to

For details and more information, one may call the Human Resource Department of the DSWD at tel. nos. (032) 4129908 or 2330261.

Deadline for submission of application is on October 30, 2011. (DSWD/PIABohol)
