The program's target clients are local government units with
basic computer-based information systems and ICT-knowledgeable personnel, as key
elements needed to its implementation. E-Governance is intended to cover all
provinces, highly urbanized cities, component cities and urbanizing municipalities
throughout the country. The installation stage of E-Governance would be initiated
by the national government for LGUs and eventually be transferred to the private
sector that has better capacity, specialization and technology to set up the program.
In addition, much focus and immediate technical assistance
shall be given to 5th and 6th class municipalities, which might have difficulties
in implementing the program due to low income level and availability of ICT in their
regions. The program will have a wide array of service applications: from online
LGU profile, programs and activities, computerized public information assistance,
to engaging in transactions and other related matters using the information superhighway.
With the effective installation of E-Governance program, LGUs
can actively participate, provide, monitor and evaluate any demands or activities needed
within and outside their respective regions. This is possible by being updated with the
current trends in information technology that pertains to local administration and public
service, technology, capability building programs and other fields that can help to enhance
the LGU's political, social and economic status.
