Malacañang to link all agencies, LGUs’ databases

Malacañang has proposed the creation of the Office of the President Executive Information Systems (OPEIS) to effectively strengthen bureaucracy and address the poverty issue.

Pres. Gloria Arroyo has issued Administrative Order No. 86 directing all government agencies, including local government units (LGUs), to give full assistance and cooperation in the creation of appropriate linkages of their existing electronic databases with the executive information system of the Office of the President.
“The government recognizes the vital role of communications and information in nation-building and has directed the appropriate use of information and communications technology (ICT) as a priority initiative of the bureaucracy in support of the fight against poverty, effective bureaucracy and the strengthening of the Republic,” said Pres. Arroyo.
The President stressed the need for the Office of the President to be ensured of the timely availability of information resources from all government entities because of the critical nature of its work.
The Presidential Management Staff (PMS), which will be tasked to maintain the OPEIS, can call upon any government agency for cooperation and assistance as may be necessary in the upgrading of information of the OPEIS. (EHL)
