Department of Information and Communication Technology to be created

The Commission on Information and Communications Technology

The CICT was created by President Arroyo in 2004, through Executive Order No. 269, as a transitory measure toward the creation of a DICT. Since then, the CICT has undergone several transformations, with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) returning to the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) in 2005 and the Telecommunications Office (TELOF) also returning to the DOTC in 2007. The National Computer Center (NCC) remains a component agency of the CICT.

Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT)

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has certified Senate Bill No. 2546, which creates a Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to supercede the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), as needing immediate enactment.

In an official communication addressed to Senate President Manny Villar dated 18 September 2008, President Arroyo stressed the need to consolidate government efforts toward the development of ICT in the country, as well as to strengthen the Philippines’ competitiveness in the global business process outsourcing (BPO) industry. The counterpart bill in the House of Representatives, House Bill No. 4300, was approved by the House of Representatives last 5 August 2008 and has already been transmitted to the Senate.
