Neri handles RP ID systems

Romulo Neri, the former Neda official who refused to squeal about the involvement of President Arroyo in the aborted NBN deal and was rewarded by being appointed head of the Social Security System will now head the lead agency in the National ID System. He said the ID system unifying government services could be in place as early as next year with the card issued by the Social Security System (SSS) at its core, the chief of the state pension fund said. Neri said the National Statistics Office (NSO) could soon provide the so-called “common reference number” that would harmonize the ID systems of the SSS, the
Government Service and Insurance System (GSIS) and Philippine Health
Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth). Other state agencies and government-owned-and-controlled firms are expected to join in the SSS-led ID network.
