Written by Human Resource Development component, CCDP-B

COTABATO CITY (October 27, 2014) —The Human Resource Mapping (HRM) for the Bangsamoro Professionals Program under the Human Resource Development (HRD) Component of Comprehensive Capacity Development Project for the Bangsamoro (CCDP-B) has been operating for 6 months since May 2014.

The program aims to identify available potential human resources of the Bangsamoro. Led by the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC), this program is a ‘human resource inventory’ for the Bangsamoro professionals in the Philippines and those who are living abroad.

“At this juncture there are at least 5,023 registered Bangsamoro professionals both obtained through online registration and datasheets submitted to Human Resource Mapping Implementation Unit,” Mr. Tu Alid Alfonso, the HRD Project Coordinator said.

“This figure was registered as of October 15,” Mr. Alfonso added.

The registration for Human Resource Mapping for the Bangsamoro Professionals was formally launched in Cotabato City on June 4, 2014.

“After assessing the total number of registered professionals to the HRM in contrast to the numerous Bangsamoro professionals in the country and abroad, since the figure is not so high, we decided in the HRM Task Force to have an extension on the registration,” Mr. Alfonso said further.

Alfonso said that based on the HRM roadmap, the deadline of registration ended last September 30, however, it was again extended to October 15.

Ms. Baisanie J. Macabuat, HRM Project Officer said “now that we have set an extension for the registration until November 15 we hope more professionals will register either online or through datasheet.”

The Human Resource Mapping Implementation Unit (HRMIU) has distributed more than 10,000 copies of HRM registration forms all over Mindanao.

“As of October 15, there were 2,114 datasheets received back by the HRMIU,” Ms. Macabuat said.

Ms. Macabuat further said that the total number of registered professionals in the online registration have reached 2,889.

The leading areas with registered professionals are the provinces of Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur, North Cotabato, Basilan, Cotabato City, Sultan Kudarat, Sulu, South Cotabato, Zambaonga del Sur and overseas.

In the information dissemination of the human resource mapping, the HRMIU have engaged in an information campaign. The United Youth for Peace and Development (UNYPAD), Mindanao Action for Peace and Development (MAPAD) and the Bangsamoro Leadership and Management Institute (BLMI) were tasked to do the information campaign.

The information campaign of service providers covered the areas of Central Mindanao, Northern Mindanao and Western Mindanao that targeted local government units, non-government organizations, civil society groups, Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) political committees and the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) among other groups. Other strategies used were radio advertisement and social media.

The Human Resource Mapping objectives are to identify professionals and other potential human resources who are willing to voluntarily support the Bangsamoro Government and second to sort out various levels of human resources, namely, top-management, middle-level, and front-line personnel among the identified human resources, and third to equip professionals with the necessary knowledge.

All Bangsamoro, including Indigenous People, and other groups born or residing in the defined territory of the Bangsamoro can register.

The Bangsamoro Professionals Mapping is only intended to gather and analyze data of the Bangsamoro Professionals with the help of the database. The activities involved do not promote recruitment or job hiring for any position.
