Mr. King D. Buencamino, a first year Doctor of Philosophy Major in Behavioral Management student of the University of Nueva Caceres, Naga City, was among the eight (8) thesis / dissertation presentors to the Council of Deans for Graduate Education (CODGE), Region V, during its General Assembly with the theme: “Quality Benchmarking in Graduate Education”, held on August 20, 2013 at Kanzo Hall and Restaurant, Legazpi City. The keynote speaker during the occasion was no less than Dr. Freddie T. Bernal, Director IV, CHED Region V.
Dr. Emelita B. Menes, Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, chose two (2) best thesis from UNC, including that of Mr. Buencamino who graduated on March 16, 2013 with a degree of Master in Public Administration. He presented his thesis entitled “GSIS Wireless Automated Processing System: Extent of Implementation and Level of Member Satisfaction”. Dr. Maria Sharon B. Reyes, CPA, was his Adviser.
Among the major findings of his study was the inconvenience of the DEPED school teachers and employees in Naga City who are availing the services of the GWAPS machine. The said public servants have to go back and forth to GSIS and DEPED thereby incurring more expenses, more travel time, and tardiness or absences from work.
The GSIS Wireless Automated Processing System (GWAPS) is an original project conceptualized and developed by IT personnel of GSIS and former President and General Manager Winston F. Garcia and was further improved under the administration of PGM Robert G. Vergara. Primarily used for loan availment, record inquiry and verification of GSIS members, the GWAPS machine involves some of the most advance technologies in the world such as radio frequency identification, biometrics, general packet radio service, and virtual private network. It only needs electricity and a cell phone signal and the GSIS can now put up a virtual branch in any part of the country.
On March 13, 2013, GSIS transferred a GWAPS machine at DEPED Division Office, Roxas Avenue, Brgy. Triangulo, Naga City. Now, the said machine caters services to the satisfaction of some nine hundred (900) teachers and employees of DEPED Naga City and also to other GSIS members who are within the locality of said agency.
Mr. Buencamino is a GSIS Naga City branch employee. He is the Area Vice President for South Luzon of the Kapisanan ng mga Manggagawa sa GSIS (KMG) and also the President of the UNC Graduate School Student Council (GSSC) for 2013-2014.
