—The paper promotes adoption of Cloud Computing Services for evaluation of the credentials and information about the credentials submitted by the faculty members for their promotion to higher academic ranks based from the National Budget Circular (NBC) 461 Common Criteria for Evaluation (CCE). The study is intended to be utilized in the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in the Philippines. COMFORTES was developed using Open Source Technologies of PHP, MySQL and WAMP Server. Prototyping approach in the development of the system was employed. The system initially adopts a free cloud computing service, however, the full implementation of the system would require subscription to a cloud service provider since huge data for faculty records will be stored. Utilizing the system would enable a fast, fair, accurate and consistent faculty evaluation. A strong faculty profile would mean quality offering of courses. Merit and promotion that was based on objective evaluation would serve as morale booster for faculty members.
