The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Cagayan Valley launches today online land management services to improve performance and promote accessibility of services to the public.
Pilot DENR offices which will cater the online Land Administration and Management System (LAMS)-Public Land Application are located at the regional office and provincial environment and natural resources offices (PENRO) in Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino, while the electronic frontline for the land records are accessible at the different field offices in the region.
The LAMS-PLA system initiated by the Land Management Bureau headed by Atty. Emelyne Talabis establishes a digital cadastral database capable of managing all the land records of the entire country. It also aims to integrate all land information from the regional and field offices into a centralized database, and unify all land processes in a single application system.
Through the concerted effort of members of the regional executives under the leadership of RED Bambalan, the DENR Region 2 was able to conceptualize the said e-frontline services.
In her message during the simultaneous launch, Director Bambalan said through the online system, the transacting public can easily access major land records since requesting the document is now available online.
“The directions of our Department is to promote efficiency, economy, accuracy and transparency in our operations. This newly-launched online land management services will definitely minimize the cost, time and effort and enable our clients to use their time attending to their livelihood, families and office works instead of traveling to Tuguegarao City just to secure land records from the regional office,” she said.
She also underscored that technology will also make the office operation more meaningful and convenient. “The application of technology will improve our ability to serve our clients or customers and promote higher performance among our personnel and make their work effective and efficient,” she added.
Available online services are technical description, blue print of approved survey plan, narrative technical description, cadastral or projection map, survey envelop documents; and geographic position and plane coordinates.

The request will be processed and picked up at the concerned DENR office. The requesting party will receive updates on the status of request via email and mobile number.
