Gender Mainstreaming Monitoring System (GMMS)

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

The Gender Mainstreaming Monitoring System or GMMS is an online system for automating the GAD Plan and Budget (GPB) and GAD Accomplishment Report (GAD AR) submission of the agencies, GOCCs, SUCs and other government instrumentalities. Through the submissions, government progress in gender mainstreaming can be monitored.

Starting September 2014, the GPB and GAD AR submission, review and endorsement of National Government Agencies (NGAs), Government Owned and controlled Corporations (GOCCs) and State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) will be through the GMMS. To participate, all national government organizations must register their system users to PCW using the GMMS Registration Form.

How to register:

  1. Download and fill out the registration form found on the right side of this page. Indicate also in the form the date when your identified system users will undergo the orientation. The identified roster of system users of your organization must undergo the orientation with your parent agency or constituent units, i.e. bureaus, regional offices and attached agencies.

  2. Determine how many users need to be registered. The table below summarizes the users that each organization must register. Please take note that there is a mimimum required registered user per organization depending on the role of the organization the review submission and review process of the GPBs and GAD ARs:

    Organization Required Users

    Line agency with bureaus, attached agencies or regional offices that prepare their own plans.

    At least one GMMS Focal Person

    At least one Reviewer

    At least one Endorser

    Optional: Encoders

    Attached agency or bureau with regional offices / 

    Regional office of CHED

    At least one GMMS Focal Person

    Optional: Encoders

    Agency, bureau, GOCC, SUC, without sub units.

    Agencies that consolidate their constituent units’ plans and reports.

    Regional office with district or provincial offices;

    At least one GMMS Focal Person

    Optional: Encoders

    Alternatively, you may assign all the roles of the GMMS FP, Reviewer, Endorser to just one user account. If this is the case, this user alone will need to undergo the orientation

    Please refer to these examples to help you determine the users you need to register:

    • Example 1: You are a line department with regional offices that prepares their own GAD plans and reports. The plans of your regional office are reviewed and submitted as a compilation along with your agency's plan and report to PCW. You will need to assign the following:

      • a GMMS Focal Person to encode and manage your agency's plan and report in the GMMS

      • a Reviewer who will review the plans submitted by your regional offices in the GMMS. Likewise, your regional offices will need to assign a GMMS FP in their respective offices to participate.

      • an Endorser as the final person who will endorse reviewed plans to PCW.

    • Example 2: You are an agency with regional offices. Your organization consolidates the plans of your regional offices into one plan and submit this master plan and busget to PCW. You only need to assign a GMMS FP from your organization who will encode the masterplan in the GMMS. Your regional offices will not need an account in the system.

    • Example 3: You are an agency that does not have attached agencies, bureaus or regional offices. You only need to assign a GMMS FP who will encode your organizations GPB and GAD AR.

  3. Determine the schedule of orientation: PCW will be organizing orientations for GMMS users in batches of 25 in the PCW Conference Room on the following dates:

    • January 16, 18, 23 and 25 2018

    Orientations in PCW will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Kindly bring your own laptop for the hand-on training.

    Alternatively, your organization may request a separate orientation if your participants number exceeds 25. You may have your orientation in your office or a suitable venue. Expenses for the conduct of the GMMS orientation may be charged against your GAD Budget. The resource person for the GMMS will be provided by PCW free of charge.
