STREAMLINING GOV’T SERVICES. Officials of various government agencies sign a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Information and Communications Technology at a hotel in Pasay City on Tuesday (April 25, 2023) to improve processes through e-governance. E-governance is the use of technology by pushing digitalization to streamline the delivery of government services, making them more accessible, efficient, and transparent to citizens.
MANILA – The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) signed a memorandum of understanding that aims to better manage transport infrastructure projects.
The MOU, signed at Marriott Hotel in Pasay City on Tuesday, allows for the interconnection and integration of transport projects with DICT’s systems.
In a news release issued Wednesday, Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista said DICT’s “crucial assistance” would keep the transport infrastructure projects on track through the use of digital technology.
“Digitalizing the implementation and construction of these projects will not only keep us on track, but also ensure adherence to high standards of safety, comfort, reliability, and efficiency,” Bautista said.
The initiative will also facilitate the integration and interconnection of pertinent systems and applications.
Under the MOU, the DICT will help the DOTr identify and develop new and existing systems and applications to ensure the efficient delivery of public service through e-governance.
E-governance is the use of technology by pushing digitalization to streamline the delivery of government services, making them more accessible, efficient, and transparent to citizens.

Several other government agencies also signed the MOU.
With the agreement, the agencies will work with the DICT to streamline the processes.
