The Government-Wide Medium-Term Information and Communications Technology Harmonization Initiative (MITHI), led by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), the Information and Communications Technology Office of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-ICT Office), and the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), will be holding FORA ON THE ICT PLAN AND BUDGET FOR FY 2015. The Fora will be held at the DBM Multi-Purpose Hall, 4th Floor, Boncodin Hall, DBM Complex, Gen. Solano St., San Miguel, Manila. The scheduling will be as follows:
23 January 2014
AM SESSION 8:30-12:00- National Government Agencies (1st Batch)

24 January 2014
AM SESSION 8:30-12:00- Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations and Government Financial Institutions
PM SESSION 1:30-5:00- State Universities and Colleges
The ICT Plan and Budget Fora aim to present and clarify the guidelines on the FY 2014 Budget Execution and the FY 2015 Budget Preparation with respect to MITHI. One of the main points of discussion is the integration of the streamlined Information System Strategic Plan (ISSP) with Budget Preparation Document Form 201 (BP 201).
These fora shall primarily be for agency (1) chief information officers (CIOs) or equivalent, and (2) information systems (IS) planners or equivalent, so that the same can better coordinate with their budget officers (who attended the DBM Budget Fora held January 13 to 16, 2014). Each agency may send two to three representatives. Ideally this will be the CIO, one IS planner, and one budget officer.
