GSIS launches tool for better property management

The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has launched a new digital tool named the Property Inventory Application (PIA), designed to enhance the management of government properties.

“With PIA, we are not just making it easier to manage property records, we’re also enhancing how we assist government agencies in protecting their assets through insurance. It’s a major step towards strengthening our country’s infrastructure,” GSIS President and General Manager Wick Veloso said in a press statement.

Developed internally by GSIS, PIA aims to streamline the traditionally manual, slow, and error-prone process of tracking government property records.

The new system ensures that all government properties are well-documented and properly managed, thereby reducing risks and improving asset management. Additionally, the tool will enhance the government’s response to calamities by providing quick access to property information.

The PIA rollout began with the previous year’s GSIS Seal of Protection awardees, including several city governments: Pasig and Makati (Gold); Valenzuela, Navotas, San Juan, Pasay, Parañaque, Quezon City (Silver); and Manila and Muntinlupa (Bronze).

Property officers from these cities attended an “Introduction and Hands-on Training on How to Navigate the Property Inventory Application” workshop on May 7, where they were trained to use the system effectively.

“By introducing this technology, GSIS is enhancing its capability to fulfill its responsibilities, helping to make the Philippines’ infrastructure safer and more stable. It will future-proof the gains of the government,” Veloso added.
