MANILA - Government on Friday started the bidding process for the Phase 2 upgrade of the information technology system of the Philippine Statistics Authority's (PSA) civil registry.

The project, which is under government's Public-Private Partnership (PPP) initiative, aims to upgrade the existing civil registry system with an entirely new system with higher specifications and service level requirements.

The PPP Center said the second phase involves the construction of a new building and the development of a completely new IT system.

The project is expected to take two years to complete.

Phase 1 of the project began in 1999 and is set to be completed on March 2017.
