New ICT projects in Philippines

The Chairman of the Philippine Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) has said that a technical working group evaluating government information and communications technology projects would be conducting a review of all projects that may lead to a possible realignment of unused government resources.

Various new e-government projects have been floated to the multi-agency technical working group, according to the CICT official.

These include a 200 million-peso e-accounting system for DBM, an integrated government financial system also under the DBM, the modernization of the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority, and the modernization of the anti-cybercrime capabilities of the Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation.
