MB: Only basic info in Selangor’s aid data system

THE Sistem Smart Inisiatif Peduli Rakyat (SSIPR) only contains basic data such as income, job and household information, and does not contain applicants’ records on aid applied for from other agencies.

“SSIPR was developed based on a one-stop centre concept to make it easier for Selangor residents to register, apply and check online for the 33 IPR programmes offered by the state government, based on the criteria and qualifications set by each programme,” said Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

“It only keeps the required data to check whether an applicant qualifies for a particular aid.

“SSIPR has no record or recipient’s aid status with other agencies such as Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) or Welfare Department (JKM).

“Through SSIPR, each assemblyman’s office only has access to data of applicants in their respective constituencies.

“This is also limited to five IPR programmes that require an assemblyman’s verification, such as Jom Shopping, Kasih Ibu Smart Selangor (KISS) and Skim Ceria,” he explained.

Amirudin said this at the state assembly, replying to a question by Jamaliah Jamaluddin (PH-Bandar Utama) on SSIPR and an assemblyman’s access to the system.

“A transfer of technology session was held by the system’s vendor and assemblymen in January 2021 to guide and brief them on the application verification process and information an assemblyman’s office has access to,” said Amirudin.

“A user’s manual is also included in the SSIPR system for further reference.”

Jamaliah then asked whether SSIPR allowed an assemblyman’s office to cross-check data, such that only those who fulfil the programme requirements could apply for aid and to ensure there were no overlaps in aid application.

“The cross-checking of data is done by the relevant agency or exco’s office handling the application.

“However, when we were streamlining the data for KISS and Peduli Sihat programmes, we did cross-check that with data from JKM according to certain criteria,” said Amirudin, adding that verification of data was bound by the Personal Data Protection Act.
