As a key speaker at the recently-concluded 2014 National ICT Summit where Globe eGov was the Platinum Sponsor, Romero noted that this is the first time that the telco is participating in ICT-solutions integration projects in government, a break from the ICT solutions that Globe has been offering to private businesses in the past. Romero said that eGovernment is all about the utilization of ICT and other Web-based technologies to improve service delivery in the public sector, covering transactions from government to citizens, citizens to government, government to businesses, government to government and government to employees. This early, Globe eGov has already won and is implementing a major government ICT-based project, the PhilGEPS, which connects all government agencies to provide procurement services for bidding out of goods and services to private sector providers. “We do not wish to add to the number of failed ICT projects in the past. The mandate of Globe eGov is not so much to win, but to deliver successful projects. ” The eGov team of Globe is also exploring other government projects and is supporting the government’s various ICT developments plans and programs including the 2011-2016 Philippine Digital Strategy, the iGovPhil Project, the Medium-Term IT Harmonization Initiative or MITHI and the 2013-2016 e-Government Master Plan. ]]>
