The increasing complexity of administrative operations in Colegio de St. Monique in Binangonan, Rizal, is the effect of the growing population of students, faculty and administration and the physical expansion of the institution. The increase in complexity means additional manpower and workloads and more complicated data processing system. To meet the growing needs of education, the institution, as a result formulated new innovations, techniques, methods and modernized equipment to aid the complexity of operations. New facilities such as the computer were developed, not only for the instructions, but also for research and academic applications. Technologies such as the Fingerprint Biometrics ID System make identification and attendance an easy task. The burden will be lessen for the IT and Human Resource personnel. What usually is a long process of logging in and out and identification is eliminated. Further, a Computerized Payroll System will help a lot in processing salaries and other financial matters for the employees. It will help reduce if not totally get rid of errors encountered when handling the payroll manually. Recording and monitoring the movement of faculties as they arrive at work, have breaks and leave for the day were traditionally performed by writing logs. Replacing the manual process with computerized attendance system with the application of biometrics technology prevents any abuses of the system and can be incorporated with time management software to produce management accounting and personnel reports. Generally speaking, any situation that allows an interaction between human and machine is capable of incorporating biometrics. Such situations may fall into a range of application areas. Biometrics is currently being used in areas such as computer desktops, networks, and monitoring the time and attendance of staff. Technology is a tool which may be developed and used intelligently, ethically and for the common good or may be used unintelligently, unethically and against the common good. When we introduce new technology, it affects individuals, we must bear in mind these realities and do our best in a responsible manner.

Background of the Study
The study will focus on developing a fully improved attendance system using a Fingerprint Biometrics ID System and also create a Computerized Payroll System for the employees of Colegio de St. Monique. The current state of the school’s logging in and out to check the attendance is done manually by writing their names, time of arrival or departure and signature. In terms of handling the payroll of employees, the school at present is managing it manually. We use biometric device because of its known capability, high security measure and convenience of using it. Our method of identification is uniquely designed for heavy security measurement so no one can access your record except you and the administrator because there will be a tendency that other personnel will interfere with your account. We selected the fingerprint over our biometric attendance system because as we all know each one of as has a unique fingerprint. All these problems can be addressed by implementing the Fingerprint Biometrics ID System and the Computerized Payroll System.

Conceptual Framework
Figure 1.1
Paradigm of existing attendance system------------------------------------------------- PROCESS
* Employee writes name, time of log-in or log-out and signature * The HR checks the attendance logs for evaluation

* Written (manual) logs of employees’ attendance

* Names
* Time of log-in / log-out
* signature
