The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has long been streamlining its services through the expanded adoption of technology, such as the legal case monitoring system (LCMS). 

Given its mandate to lead the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), the agency is powering its network with digital tools to improve convenience and efficiency in providing land tenure security and agrarian legal assistance to landless farmers.

To recall, DAR tapped Monstarlab Philippines’ (formerly Ideyatech, Inc.) Attaché Docs in 2011 to develop a case management system for its legal system. Rolled into one, the LCMS boasts a comprehensive database coupled with a management and planning tool. Tracking down specific or high-profile cases has become easier and faster with just a click, while presenting real-time reports. 

Since then, Attaché Docs’ LCMS has boosted the organization’s capacity, especially its over 1,500 legal officers, to record and monitor agrarian cases at its provincial, regional, and central offices. 

Deploying such a technology, this has also led to cutting down dependence on physical documents as the Legal Affairs Office no longer required people to submit written accomplishment reports to the central office. Instead, the reports can easily be generated through the system. 

“The LCMS, the first of its kind and complexity in the country, is a major milestone for the Department of Agrarian Reforms [DAR] ‘s Legal Sector. With this system, we have fundamentally changed the way we work, the way we measure our accomplishments, and even the way we prepare our budgets,” former Agrarian Reform Undersecretary Anthony Paruñgao said during that time.

May 04, 2022: DAR’s Strategic Planning for the Support to Parcelization of Lands For Individual Titling (SPLIT) Project.

Intending to maintain systematic and convenient operations, DAR conducted a four-day orientation with officials from provincial and regional levels and members of Monstarlab Philippines to discuss a new project related to LCMS. 

Called SPLIT, or Support for Parcelization of Lands for Individual Titling, the agency is gearing up for another program that seeks to complement and strengthen the CARP. 

According to DAR, about 1.38 million hectares of collective land titles will be subdivided. Backed by World Bank, the international financial institution said in February that some hectares of land for agrarian reform beneficiaries were already up for registration under the SPLIT program.

As the project entails a large number of beneficiaries and a massive landbank, World Bank previously said the agency has already launched digital forms to support the inventory process. 

DAR also said that it would procure the services of system developers, including those with expertise in data management. 

What can Attaché Docs provide to DAR

Attaché Docs offers features designed for the needs of its clients, allowing them to customize digitized forms and data collection.

With DAR’s goal of subdividing over a million hectares of land, using Attaché Docs’ technology is labor-saving as it is equipped to manage and consolidate documents seamlessly. 

Having organized more than 2.3 million records, Attaché Docs can commit to delivering a tailor-made document management system, assuring a smooth workflow for the project. 

Aside from DAR, Attaché Docs has been previously tapped by other government agencies for the tracking of their crucial documents or projects. 

With digitization gaining ground in the market, organizations can find a partner in Monstarlab Philippines to explore how its solutions, like Attaché Docs, can help their operations.
