The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is hiring 32 project managers to quickly implement several medium tolarge scale e-government projects meant to improve public services and reduce lines at government offices.
The agency announced the vacancies to further implement and complete the eGovernment Masterplan (eGMP) and the Medium Term ICT Harmonization Initiative (Mithi).
Among the essential e-government projects to be implemented by the project managers are those under the Integrated Government Philippines (iGovPhil) project, which aims to interconnect government agencies and automate processes for faster and more efficient public service.
The project itself is composed of interconnected projects that include infrastructure, systems and applications, and shared services. At least 10 of these projects are either complete or nearing completion.
These are the fiber optic network, data centers, cloud computing, government email, public key infrastructure, forms generator, online payment system, document and record management system, government Web hosting, and project tracking and management.
Among the IT projects in the pipeline outside iGovPhil are the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS), the National Payroll System, and the Human Resources Asset Management and Procurement.
The project managers shall form part of the corps of chief information officers (CIOs) who will be deployed in frontline government agencies managing vital e-government services.
Applicants need to have minimum of three years experience in managing medium to large scale ICT projects in the public or private sector. They must also be willing to be assigned to government agencies other than the DOST-ICT Office.
