PICAB (Philippine Information and Computing Accreditation Board)

A Historic Event Indeed!

Philippine Information and Computing Accreditation Board -- MOA signing — with Ito Gruet, Gregg Victor Gabison, Rachel Roxas, Noya Terrado, Calen Martin D. Legaspi, John Peter Abraham Ruero, Peach Tinio, Toti Casino, Rolando Corpus and myself at C2, Bonifacio High Street, The Fort.

The Philippine Information and Computing Accreditation Board (PICAB), Inc., a consortium of the Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP), Philippines Software Industry Association(PSIA), Philippine Computer Society (PCS) and the Philippine Society of Information Technology Educators, Foundation Inc (PSITE) was recently formed  and currently is in the process of registering at the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
PICAB recognizes that there is mutual recognition agreement (MRA) of accredited academic computing programs that prepare graduates for professional practice called the Seoul Accord (“Accord”), the primary purpose of which is to contribute to the improvement of computing education worldwide.

PICAB are convinced that it would be to the advantage of Philippine institutions to be so accredited as this will imply equivalency among credentials earned from Accord-accredited programs within and outside the Philippines and such credentials earned in the Philippines will be recognized and respected by institutions and employers outside of the Philippines, thus facilitating employment of and allowing increased deployment of Filipinos
