Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairman Francisco Duque III spearheaded on Thursday afternoon the launching of the agency’s Computerized Examination (COMEX) in this city.

The COMEX is a system that will automate and integrate each step in the administration of the examination.

The launching of the project is in collaboration with the Department of Science and Technology’s Advance Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI).

Duque described the COMEX project as “a fraud free, secured, impenetrable and therefore it should give no doubt in the integrity of the result of the examination.”

Duque said they have launched the project in the 90s but was stopped due to integrity and security gap issues.

Duque said COMEX is now in place after the system was overhauled.

CSC Regional Director Atty. Macybel Alfaro-Sahi said the COMEX project will be operational by December once the system will be finally connected to the server in Manila.

A total of 20 computer units were installed at the regional office for the project.

The on-line examinations will be available for the career service professional and career service sub-professional. The examination fee is Php700.

However, Sahi said they will still conduct the paper and pen examination even though COMEX will be fully operational. The fee for the written tests is Php500.
