The Department of Science and Technology announced recently the creation of a special working group tasked with the responsibility of developing the Philippine e-Government Interoperability Framework (PeGIF), that will ensure the interoperability of systems and allow the smooth exchange of information and services among government agencies.


According to an official statement from the ICT-Office (DOST-ICTO), the PeGIF working group is composed of ICT champions from the government, private sector, and the academe. They will be working on developing the standards and processes for governing the technical and informational interoperability of government ICT systems.


“Through the PeGIF, we aim to attain true e-government sooner in the country. Our citizens can expect that queuing for basic government services such as health care and taxes will be faster and forms will no longer be needed to be filled out repeatedly, allowing for citizens to spend more time in what matter most, like earning a living. Likewise, it will also ensure the accomplishment of our goals for good governance, transparency accountability; enhance citizen engagement and effective delivery of public service,” said Louis Casambre, Undersecretary and executive director of the DOST-ICTO.
