The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) have joined forces to improve the interoperability of e-governance systems, marking a significant step forward in digital advancement. 

This strategic partnership ensures their digital transformation efforts align with people's service delivery needs.

During the Inter-Government Agency Memorandum of Understanding Signing for E-Governance, Undersecretary for Information and Communications Technology and Chief Information Office (CIO) Maria Francesca Del Rosario and DICT Secretary Ivan John Uy led the signing of the MOU.

Secretary Uy expressed the government's commitment to leveraging the power of ICT to create an agile and efficient bureaucracy, aiming to enhance public service delivery, promote transparency, and ensure positive accountability.

DBM CIO Del Rosario voiced her support for the e-governance initiative, emphasizing the importance of policy work and integration of applications alongside technological advancements. This reflects DBM Secretary Amenah Pangandaman's dedication to establishing a reliable digital governance system that provides social protection and efficient employment opportunities.

DBM stated that this interoperability agreement with the DICT aligns with the national government's directive to advance digitalization, in line with the key developmental agenda of the Marcos administration.

As part of the MOU, the DBM commits to sharing relevant information and data, providing the DICT with insights into budget and accounting processes, as well as existing rules and regulations that define its functions.

In addition to the collaboration between DBM and DICT, the DICT has also signed an MOU with the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) to enhance data privacy for its members and pensioners in their pursuit of digitalization.

Other government agencies, including the Department of Health (DOH), Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), Department of Agriculture (DA), and the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), have also signed MOUs with the DICT, further strengthening the government's digital transformation efforts. —iTacloban (Source: PIA-NCR/DBM)
