The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) launched the first Electronic Business Processing and Licensing System (eBPLS) in the Mountain Province.
“As part of our digital transformation efforts in the new normal, your DICT aspires to automate and modernize our local government units. To do this, we are tirelessly working to provide eBPLS to localities nationwide, especially those classified as third to sixth class municipalities,” DICT Secretary Gregorio “Gringo” B. Honasan II said in a statement on Wednesday, July 14.
eBPLS is a cloud-based software that enables local government units to process applications for new business permits and applications for renewal of business permits electronically.
End users registering through the system need to fill out the application form and upload documentary requirements, payment for the permit is also embedded in the software.
According to DICT, permits can be released to the applicant on the same day.
