During the signing, Robredo emphasized the need for institutional capability and sustainability as well as significant outcomes as a result of using ICT as a tool for local government processes. Batapa-Sigue said the objective of the awards is to encourage the effective and efficient ICT in the delivery of services and performance of the duties and responsibilities by LGUs. It also aims to commend, collate and document best practices of LGUs in integrating ICT in their processes to serve as example and benchmarks to other LGUs, to improve the business ecosystem of the LGUs and motivate the private and business sector to actively participate and/or invest in the growth of the LGUs , and to promote transparency in governance. The eGov Awards is the first to be given by the ICT sector to LGUs with exemplary performance in empowering its public customers and business. In November 2012, the first awardees will be honored during the 5th NICP National ICT Summit in the City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna hosted by the the Laguna Industry Network for Knowledge, Innovation & Technology Foundation (LINK-IT). The eGov awards aim to recognize two major categories, namely, the Best in eGov Customer Empowerment (G2C) Award and the Best in eGov Business Empowerment (G2B) Award. Sorio hopes that with the NICP-DILG-Cyber City partnership, the country will see the proliferation of revolutionary ICT initiatives that will support clearer, wider, and faster access to information in local governments. ]]>
