Fake documents are rampant in the Philippines. Because of this, many organizations are defrauded as they cannot verify whether their members’ identification cards, contracts, and documents are legitimate.

Looking at how the CIO Forum Foundation focuses on creating advocacy programs to improve the information and communications technology (ICT) of the different units of government agencies, the collaboration with FilPass would be their first step to providing a more efficient and effective public governance. The partnership of these two organizations will be handled by Ryan Soh –Chief Strategy Officer of FilPass, Leo Querubin -Managing Director of FilPass, and George Kintanar -Chairman of the CIO Forum Foundation.The FilPass IDs would be used for events tracking and attendance, issuance,and verification of certificates, and scanning of membership identification cards for entry to important meetings.
