The Philippine government will be launching a project to facilitate interoperability within various offices and to streamline data management. This was announced on February 26 by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
Government IT experts and officials are meeting on February 26 to finalize a policy document regarding the undertaking. A framework on technical interoperability was completed last year and another policy document—which will deal with business process interoperability—is expected to be finished this year.
According to Louis Casambre, DOST Undersecretary and Executive Director of the Information and Communications Technology Office (ICT Office), the aforementioned policy documents are called the Philippine e-Government Interoperability Framework (PeGIF). The PeGIF will set the standards for government agencies and private industry partners on the issue of sharing and reusing data and information, and the operation of applications.
“Each policy document under PeGIF is drafted by a working group composed of IT experts from the government, private sector, and the academe,” Casambre said. “The document is then presented and reviewed by a bigger body of stakeholders.”
The Philippine Government Common Platform (PGCP) will be in charge of the implementation of the PeGIF. It’s a cloud storage platform catering to all government agencies that will enable individual offices to access all government applications and databases to promote efficiency.
Highly-skilled technical staff will be developed via the Resource Pooling Strategy (RPS).
“To do this, we plan to work out a deal with private and public universities and academic institutions to implement short-term academic programs that will allow, for example, fourth year or graduating engineering or IT students to undergo training, with the view of filling up the requirements of the PGCP in the future,” said Denis F. Villorente, Deputy Executive Director for E-Government of the ICT Office.
“An apprenticeship program may also be implemented for graduates where they will perform actual work for the PGCP and gain the necessary experiences.” —
