DOST-ICTO to showcase latest programs on iGovPhil project

MANILA, Dec 9 (PNA) — The Department of Science and Technology’s Information and Communication Technology Office (DOST-ICTO) will present its year-end report on its Integrated Government Philippines (iGovPhil) Project and unveil its latest products and services at the UP Ayala Technohub in Diliman, Quezon City Tuesday.

“The event will serve as a briefing for our media partners on the latest updates with the iGovPhil Project,” DOST-ICTO spokesperson Roy Espiritu said in a statement.

Four of iGovPhil’s services will be officially introduced to its stakeholders which are the following:

Archives and Records Management Information System (ARMIS) – a system for document management that will cover the entire document process, from creation to archiving to disposal. It is based on the recommended process of NAP and existing government policies;

Project Management Information System (ProMan) – This service is a web-based project management tool that will aid in managing the project from design to monitoring required reports. Phase one involves the customization of the project management application for use by participating government agencies to aid in their collaboration activities and project-based tasks;

Forms Generator – A web-based application that produces forms used by various government agencies. This toolkit generates electronic versions of the agencies’ paper-based forms. It features a form designer, form renderer and shared service application registry. Government agencies will just provide the elements needed to be included in the form and the generator will provide a form according to the specifications, making their tasks simpler and easier. The system also benefits the citizens who will get the forms they actually need to fill out;and,

PhPay – an Internet-based electronic payment facility and gateway that will enable citizens and businesses to remit payments electronically to government agencies. It renders services through various delivery channels, which include debit instructions (ATM accounts), credit instructions (credit cards) and mobile wallets (SMS).

The executive briefing is part of the iGovPhil’s Project year-end activity which will be held at the said venue starting tomorrow until December 12.

Other activities in the three-day event are the presentation of the Philippine e-Government Interoperability Framework (PeGIF) plan and support kiosk for services such as GovMail, GovCloud and Gov’t Data Center, Fiber Optic Cable (FOC), Web Hosting, and Agency Records Inventory System (AgRIS). (PNA)
