Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 2) — The national government on Friday launched the eGOV PH Super App which is a one-stop-shop platform for various national and local government transactions.

The mobile application will streamline processes and transactions in a bid to provide ease of doing business with at least 26 national government agencies.

"That is the call of the day is we will have to adopt all of these new technologies to be able to compete properly on the global stage," said President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. during the launching of the mobile application.

The eGOV PH Super App allows the public to access their digitalized government-issued IDs, including the national ID and driver's license.

The public can also register their SIM cards in the eGOV PH Super App.

Moreover, the multiple outbound and inbound travel declaration forms are unified in the app.

The DICT is also working closely with the Department of Foreign Affairs, Department of Tourism, and the Bureau of Immigration to implement the eVisa Portal for easier entry of tourists into the country.

Another feature of the app is the public can also create their resume which can be accessed by local and foreign employers.

Further, the public can now directly file complaints to government agencies and receive urgent responses through the mobile application.

The eGOV PH Super App can be downloaded at the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Financial management info system

Meanwhile, Marcos on Thursday signed an executive order requiring government offices to implement an integrated financial management information system (IFMIS) in their transactions.

Executive Order No. 29 or the "Strengthening the Integration of Public Financial Management Information Systems, Streamlining Processes Thereof, and Amending Executive Order No. 55 (S. 2011) for the Purpose" is in line with the administration's commitment to digitalize transactions to ensure fast and efficient delivery of services.

An IFMIS automates the financial operations, which includes budgeting and accounting, of a business or an office.

The EO also covers local government units and government-owned and controlled corporations.

"The EO was issued based on the recommendation made by the Private Sector Advisory Council for the Digital Infrastructure group to help promote efficiency, transparency and ease of doing business with the government," Malacañang said in a statement released Friday.
