The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and the University of the Philippines Public Administration Research and Extension Services Foundation Inc., Regulatory Reform Support Program for National Development (UPPAF-RESPOND) has officially turned over the Supply Chain Analytics (SCAn) Dashboard and launched the Incident Reporter Mobile Application last 21 May 2020 at the National Incident Command Center in Camp Aguinaldo.
The SCAn dashboard is created for the purpose of providing up-to-date, real-time information to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on existing supply chain and logistics bottlenecks/issues, and potential solutions to give them a better view from the ground, and aid them in making relevant and timely actions and decisions. It consists of five components: incident reports, trip videos for major selected routes, survey results from different stakeholders re: supply chain bottlenecks, links to other government dashboards, and a supply chain bulletin for news stories related to supply chain.
On the other hand, the Incident Reporter Mobile Application is created as a platform where different types of users will be able to report different types of incidents. The reports from this downloadable app will be submitted to the SCAn dashboard for appropriate actions of concerned authorities.
In these trying times, digital tools like this initiative provide a silver lining to the COVID 19 pandemic. Hence, everybody is encouraged to make use of the mobile app, and submit reports to help the authorities in identifying and addressing the prevailing bottlenecks in the supply chain, and further to sustain and keep the economy going. – KJDA
