Reports made through SCAn Reporter are directed to the Supply Chain Analytics (SCAn) Dashboard, which informs government agencies and industry associations of ground-level issues that need to be addressed to ensure the flow of goods and inputs is unhampered.
SCAn Dashboard has five key components—incident reports, trip videos for major selected routes, survey of supply chain issues coming from supply chain players, links to other government dashboards, and summary information on the domestic and Asia-Pacific supply chain environment.
Both the SCAn Dashboard and SCAn Reporter, which were launched by the National Economic and Development Authority Regional Development Group (NEDA-RDG) on May 21, were given a green light on April 15 by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF), the highest policymaking body on COVID-19 concerns in the Philippines.
The two ICT tools were made in partnership with the University of the Philippines Public Administration Research and Extension Services Foundation-Regulatory Reform Support Program for National Development (UPPAF-RESPOND), which is currently providing technical assistance to NEDA-RDG for supply chain-related undertakings, and in cooperation with partner agencies and select private entities.
SCAn Reporter can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or from iatf-scan.net. To download from the Google Play Store, search for IATF Reporter and install. Users must register to use the mobile application.
Information that can be submitted through SCAn Reporter include type of reporter (e.g., public servant, transport service, concerned citizen, worker, company, and industry association) and incident type (e.g., real-time quarantine control point problem, permit-related problem, regulations, goods overpricing, and real-time road closures, traffic, and accidents).
Photos and videos can also be uploaded in the incident report before submission. If the incident reporter is an industry association member, he or she will be directed to the survey of supply chain issues.
In compliance with the Data Privacy Act, information provided by the reporter will only be used by the relevant government agency and the IATF.
UPPAF-RESPOND, a grantee of the United States Agency for International Development, has donated equipment for the large-scale viewing and operation of the SCAn Dashboard at the National Incident Command-Emergency Operation Center.
