The Department of Budget and Management (DBM), the Philippines is pushing ahead the digitisation of budget processes to be done by 2014 as part of supporting the public financial management reforms.

DBM Secretary Florencio S Abad addressed this message during the 1st Quarterly Membership Meeting and Seminar of the Philippin Association for Government Budget Administration (PAGBA) held at the Sarabia Manor Hotel.

Abad said that budget submissions will be done electronically starting from 2014, and there will no longer be manual. This digitisation process will help save seven working days for the DBM.

“We are currently installing a government integrated financial management information system to enable real-time information on financial transactions,” said Abad.

At the same event, he added that the DBM is also expanding its government e-procurement system towards online bidding.

“Next year, we will issue agencies vouchers so that all procurement of common-used supplies can be traced in the government procurement system,” Abad said.

The DBM has recently launched an e-payment facility early this year, which has marked the first time in the history of this archipelago country to have this online payment solution for the government.

“This will allow us to pay online when we procure supplies through the Landbank of the Philippines,” Abad added.

The online payment in the government e-procurement is expected to be the starting point for other services that the government will provide including birth certificates, passports, licenses, among others, according to him.
