Role overview

The use of information and communications technology (ICT) in the digitalisation of transactions and services is viewed as a key driver for the competitiveness of the government in providing better services. One of the main thrusts of the 2023 Philippine Development Plan (2023 PDP) is for the justice sector to “use digital technology and build a robust, efficient, and disaster-resilient ICT architecture for the justice sector.”
