Information on Computerization of OFW Database

Requested from POEA by Sofio Ortega at 03:30 PM on Feb 28, 2019.
Purpose: To know more about the efforts being done by POEA to enhance its services to OFWs
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2016 - 02/28/2019

Hi,

According to POEA's revised rules and regulations for landbased OFWs, one of the policy was to promote and support the establishment of a shared government information system on the overseas employment program, using a computer database to allow verification and freeflow of data exchanges.

I would like to know:
1) Has there been any computerization project since 2016?
2) If there is, where can I find the documents related to the project?  (I would like to understand it's scope, purpose, functionality)
3) If there is, when it is expected to go "live"?
