Islamabad schools introduce biometric time and attendance system for staff
Islamabad’s Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) will be introducing a biometric time and attendance system for both teaching and non-teaching staff at the 422 schools in Pakistan’s capital, according to a report by the Daily Times.
A human resources management system (HRMS) is also being established.
The biometric time and attendance system will give the FDE improved monitoring and centralized control over the educational institutions in the city by recording employees’ attendance, time response, productivity, performance and profile management in the new IT system. The automated system will also enhance the FDE’s ability to effectively evaluate employees and manage their attendance reports. The new HRMS will be used to manage the profiles of employees of FDE.
The FDE administration has put out a tender for bids to develop a comprehensive HRMS software, biometric attendance and distribution, installation, configuration of biometric machines at educational institutions across the federal capital. According to Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) Secretary Khalid Hanif, “The bidding process is under progress and the FDE administration has opened the received bids on February 11th but the contract would be granted to the successful IT firm after the scrutiny and comparison of all received proposals.”
