Deputy Ombudsman for the Military and Other Law Enforcement Offices Cyril Ramos and Atty. Joan Lou Gamboa, also from the Office of the Ombudsman were present together with SM Supermalls President Annie Garcia and SM Business Center Operations Senior Assistant Vice President Dennis Yaw.

Application and payments can be filed at SM Business Centers, even on weekends and holidays. SM shall electronically transmit the data to the Office of the Ombudsman for printing of the clearance. The final clearance shall be picked up by Air21 and delivered directly to the customer.

Over the past years, the SM Business Center has become a one-stop shop for government services so that customers can transact these requirements while shopping in the malls.  Aside from the Ombudsman Clearance Applications, its services include NSO applications for birth, marriage, and death certificates; PRC renewals of professional licenses; and DTI consumer welfare services and renewal of business name.
