The eGovernmentFramework (eGovFrame) is part of the whole Philippine eGovernment Interoperability Framework (PeGIF). It aims to improve the quality of e-government services and efficiency of information and communications technology investment. Intertwined with Government Common Platform (GCP), which focuses on government data, the eGovFrame focuses on software development tools for interoperability. In addition, the eGovFrame serves as infrastructure environment for implementing application software and provides basic functions in the application runtime.
To ensure interoperability and eliminate technical dependency on vendors’ proprietary development frameworks used across government agencies, the standardization of eGovFrame shall be promoted. The eGovFrame shall reuse common functionalities, increase the quality and reusability of application software, provide up-to-date ICT trends and deliver easy to use and function-rich environments.
The system ensures interoperability, which is necessary for information sharing and inter-linkage among government agencies, by constructing the application based on eGovFrame. This ensures interagency collaboration. The eGovFrame also provides standardized screen and interface for easy implementation of inter-linkage among e-government systems, increasing levels of public satisfaction by offering one-stop services not available in the previous system because government agencies offered different services. Also, by using eGovFrame, businesses are now able to improve their core competencies, technological capabilities, and productivity.
