A birth certificate is legal proof of identity. It tells who we are, where and when we are born, and other essential information that confirms someone’s identity. In the Philippines, the records of someone’s birth are kept strictly and confidential in the Philippine Statistics Authority. Traditionally, when people need an original copy of their birth records, they need to personally process it in the civil registrar’s office or they can also directly process it in the PSA office. The traditional method is time-consuming, error-prone, and costly. There is an evident need for an upgraded system to streamline the process of requesting a birth certificate. The researchers of the study aimed to develop an online platform that will automate the transactions between PSA officers and their clients. The capstone project, “Online Birth Certificate Processing System with SMS Notification “ is an IT-based solution that aims to automate the process of requesting, verifying, and approving inquiries for original birth records. The system will eliminate the traditional method and transition the birth certificate processing into an easy, convenient, and efficient manner. The researchers will develop the project following the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) technique. They will subject the output of the project to testing, checking, evaluation by the respondents and panel of IT experts. The researchers will gather a sample size of the PSA officers and their clients as respondents of the study. The implementation of the system will ease up and simplify birth certificate processing.

Introduction of the Study

Nowadays, people have become too dependent on technology in running their errands. Almost everything that is done manually has now a technological alternative, where people can accomplish it electronically. The capstone project, entitled “Online Birth Certificate Processing System” is a web-based system designed to automate the process of requesting original copies of birth certificates. The system will streamline the transaction between the PSA office and individuals who ask for an original copy of their birth certificate.

People use their birth certificates as legal proof for their identity for whatever valid reason they need it. People must pay for the original copy of their birth records upon request. Traditionally, requesting an original copy of a birth certificate is done manually, Individuals will visit the PSA office, to request and process their birth certificates. The manual process requires valuable time, effort, and money to complete the transaction. The manual process also will slow the operation of the PSA office which will not allow them to address multiple requests in a day. There is an intensified need to automate the operation and transaction between individuals and the PSA office in requesting and processing birth records.

Proposed Solution

To fill in the gap mentioned above, the researchers proposed the development of the Online Birth Certificate Processing System. The proposed project will streamline the transactions between the PSA office and the people in processing birth records. The end-users can utilize the system to make electronic requests to get an original copy of their birth certificates. The PSA office will verify the request and process it right after verification and approval. The system will also have the SMS Notification feature, to update clients about the status of their requests. The said system will ease up the whole birth certificate processing. The PSA staff and their clients can save time and effort as well as money to accomplish the completion of birth records.

Objectives of the Study 

General Objective-the researchers of the study generally aim to design and develop an online platform for Birth Certificate requests and processing.

The researchers generally aim to:

  1. To design a web-based platform to allow people to get original copies of their birth certificates online.
  2. To extend birth certificate processing beyond face-to-face transactions.
  3. To ease up and simplify birth certificate processing.
  4. To electronically streamline transactions between PSA officers and their clients.
  5. To subject the project output to evaluation.
  6. To evaluate the project in terms of user acceptability, efficacy, productivity, quality, and reliability.

Scope of the Study 

This study concentrates on developing a web-based platform for birth certificate processing. The project is limited to streamlining transactions between the PSA office and its clients. The system will allow electronic birth certificate requests, verification, approval, and processing of the original copy of birth certificates. The project also has an SMS notification that will notify the client about the status of their request. The researchers will gather a sample size of PSA staff and their clients to be subjected as respondents of the study.
