Call for Prospective Project Database Administrator for the Philippine Wealth Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem Services (Phil-WAVES) Project: Grant No. TF016218
(Posted 04 August 2015)



The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is inviting prospective Project Database Administrator whose expertise in database and information system development and management would be needed in the implementation of the Philippine Wealth Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystems Services (Phil-WAVES).

  1. Background

The WAVES Global Partnership Program (GPP) promotes sustainable development worldwide through the implementation of wealth accounting that focuses on integrating natural capital accounting (NCA) in the system of national accounts for development planning and policy analysis.

The Philippines was identified as one of the pilot countries for the WAVES GPP. The project activities, among others, will generate the data and indicators necessary to inform development planning and policy analysis on the sustainable use of key natural resources and will support institutionalization of the 2012 SEEA.

Aligned with the institutionalization component of the project there is the need to establish a regular generation, processing and compilation of data for the NCA and Ecosystems Accounts. At the same time, generation and compilation must adopt some changes in technical perspectives to be able to respond to the increasing demands of a complex statistical development – responsive to the call for a “data revolution”. This would involve the enhancement of procedures and processes not only on the generation and compilation but also in the dissemination of NCA and Ecosystems accounts results.

The system has the following components: (i) automation of the compilation process and procedures of the PSA with a link to the MGB database, (ii) implementation of an electronic registration system for company reports in compliance to MGB Forms, Annual Integrated Report (IAR) forms and related statistics, (iii) development of a Database System for MGB with the link between its regional and national data for mining/mineral accounts, (iv) development of a Phil-WAVES/Environmental and Disaster Statistics Division (EDSD) Web page; and, (v) institutionalization of an electronic registration system for the conduct of quarterly and annual survey of mining establishments.

The database and information system shall require the hiring of a Database Programmer/Administrator, who shall implement the requirements of the system.
