Mayor Uy cited in his letter dated June 10, 2024 that the primary goal of the 2024 Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) is to update the inventory of the city’s population and generate the disaggregated data to identify beneficiaries for government social protection programs.


Under the agreement, the PSA will take the lead in conducting the 2024 POPCEN-CBMS and set standard protocols and procedures for hiring and recruitment, training, data collection, geotagging, data processing, and map data processing. The PSA will also develop data collection and processing systems, questionnaires, forms, manuals, and other instruments and materials relevant to the 2024 CBMS. 


It shall also conduct coordination meetings with the city and the local Census-CBMS Coordinating Board as necessary to ensure a smooth and efficient implementation of the 2024 POPCEN-CBMS in the locality, among other tasks.


For its part, the city will provide financial and supervisory support. It will allocate a sufficient amount and ensure that the transfer of funds amounting to P21,858,441 is in accordance with auditing and accounting rules and regulations. 


Moreover, the agreement will cover collection of household-level information, as well as the geotagging of household buildings of CBMS in all barangays of the city.
