GSIS launches new digital tool to enhance government property management


The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) recently launched a new digital tool called Property Inventory Application (PIA) which is aimed at enhancing the management of government properties. PIA is part of the GSIS’s commitment to strengthen the protection and stability of government infrastructure.

“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.

Developed internally by GSIS, PIA addresses the challenge of annually accomplishing and submitting the property inventory form, a mandate enforced by both GSIS and the Commission on Audit (COA).

Traditionally, tracking government property records was a manual, slow, and error-prone process that often resulted in incomplete data and risks in asset management. PIA simplifies this process, ensuring that all government property are well-documented and properly managed. With the information at our fingertips through PIA, government response to calamities will also be enhanced.

PIA is being rolled out initially to last year’s GSIS Seal of Protection awardees, including the city governments of Pasig and Makati (Gold); Valenzuela, Navotas, San Juan, Pasay, Paranaque, Quezon (Silver); and Manila and Muntinlupa (Bronze). Property officers from these cities attended the “Introduction and Hands-on Training on How to Navigate the Property Inventory Application” workshop last May 7 where they were trained on how to effectively use the system.

“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.
