Original Provision Amended Provision
Section VII. Technical Specifications
1.    Background

1.1. In 2012, the Integrated Government Philippines (iGovPhil) Project was launched by the Department of Science and Technology to improve e-governance in the Philippines. It was tasked to provide a common infrastructure which includes the creation of data centers and the laying out of fiber optic cable all over Metro Manila to interconnect government offices.  Common applications will be shared by these agencies to improve delivery of services, operation, communication, and transparency to the public.  We call these common applications – shared services.

 

The first shared services offered in the initial implementation of iGov were a centralized email system for the whole of government, a project management tool, an e-payment gateway, a PKI system, and a document management system.  However, during the implementation of the project, we realized that most agencies are storing large amounts of data waiting to be shared to public.  Some or most of these data have a spatial aspect or component that is easily visually represented through maps. Example data such as outputs from weather simulations, national road systems, location of schools and hospitals and even dengue cases – when overlayed all at the same time over a base map, gives government officials important insights that might improve the decision and policy making process.

 

Clearly, a platform where agencies can contribute data and visualize them in a way that makes it easy understand is needed.

2.   Objectives

2.1.              The main objective of the proposal is to procure subscription services (and installation services if required) for a geospatial platform capable of leveraging current government data assets and presenting and sharing these data to stakeholders, other government agencies and the general public.

These items are deleted.
