Cap, Herein A.Days Nelson S. Genera Type of Document: Project Study Type of Publication: Unpublished Institution: Mountain Province State Polytechnic College Boonton, Mountain Province Keywords: Computerized Payroll System, COPS, Department of Agrarian Reform (DARK) Rationale As the impact of computerized systems are more than realized, computerizing systems used in offices has already become a need to enable the overall office operation perform their tasks faster, accurate and more reliable compared to manual processes. It automates many functions which save both time and effort.It enables the personnel and staffs manage data and information electronically as needed keeping records up-to-date. The Department of Agrarian Reform is the lead implementing agency of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

It undertakes land tenure improvement, development of program beneficiaries, and agrarian Justice delivery. This means there are a number of personnel being employed to do these tasks. However, basing from the information gathered by the cause they are still using the manual process (MS Excel) see statement of the problem.This motivated the proponents to design a computerized payroll system to lessen or even eliminate the problems being encountered on the present system used by the Department of Agrarian Reform. Summary After a thorough observation and careful analysis basing from the information gathered, the following findings and problems has been observed.

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DARK) is still using Microsoft Excel in preparing their payroll. Problems will surely be minimized using the proposed computerized payroll system. The proposed system will certainly give accessible, accurate, efficient, and reliable information to the user.In addition, it also aims to improve the time management in order to obtain a faster completion of the overall operation of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DARK).

Conclusions In the light of the findings of this study, the following conclusions were drawn: 1. The encountered problems on the Department of Agrarian Reform office were; computations of the salaries are not accurate and are prone to errors and complexities, files are not organized, technical errors due to manual processes. These errors require a lot of time and effort which makes the process slow and gives a tiring day to the personnel in charge. . The proposed system will eliminate the problems encountered in the existing payroll system.

It will speed up the process involved in payroll preparation; Filing, retrieving, tracking and updating of employee records. Furthermore, it will produce accurate data. In addition, the personnel in charge can eventually generate reports and manage records on time. 3. Security of Data is assured if the proposed system will be implemented.

Recommendations The researchers recommend that the Department of Agrarian Reform shall implement the proposed Computerized Payroll System to speed up the process of preparing payroll.Some of the concerns of this automation of the process are directly channeled by the person involved in the system. Personnel involved shall be trained for a better and fast implementation. The researchers recommend that employees that are involved in payroll preparation should be oriented for them to fully understand matters concerning the proposed system.
