Consistent with its mandate to prioritize the acquisition, adoption, innovation, and application of science and technology for development and its pursuit of competence, excellence and service innovation as provided in both the Organic Law for the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) and the Revised Transition Plan 2019-2022 for the Bangsamoro Transition Authority, the Bangsamoro Government, through the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG), forged a partnership with UNDP in the Philippines that seeks to apply, where possible, the strategic framework and principles of the UNDP-supported Access to Information (a2i) project of the Government of Bangladesh to the specific social, cultural and economic contexts of BARMM.
This project titled “Localizing e-Governance for Accelerated Provision of Services (LeAPS)” builds on the a2i experience towards the transformation in local governance in BARMM by significantly accelerating connectivity in communities and opening up governance by enabling citizens to capitalize on the benefits of connectivity, such as through improved access to services and information, community enterprise development, assisted rural e-commerce, and skills development. The LeAPS project is a way to overcome the dependencies on archaic, paper-based and manual processes within and among the local government units (LGUs). This project will also maximize the use of MILG’s limited manpower and resources to deliver and monitor frontline services effectively and efficiently.
The overarching outcome of the LeAPS project is to ensure that “the most marginalized, vulnerable and at-risk people and groups benefit from inclusive and quality services and live in a supportive environment wherein their nutrition, food security, and health are ensured/protected”, its outputs are targeted as follows: a) efficient e-services in select LGUs and Ministries of BARMM managed and optimized; b) LGUs effectively and efficiently use disaggregated data for development and resilience planning, programming, budgeting and governance; c) enabling program environment established; and d) program managed efficiently with sustainability measures.
The Development through Local Indicators and Vulnerability Exposure Database (DevLIVE+) is a system and a tool that is used to collect, organize, visualize and manage baseline data and information on the household, building structures and production areas for monitoring access to and delivery of basic services, assessing vulnerabilities and exposures to hazards and risks, and creating development pathways toward sustainable and progressive communities.
On the other hand, the Development LIVE (DevLIVE), is an online platform that enables citizens and government promote integrity in the delivery of social and infrastructure projects and programmes, will also be introduced. This citizen monitoring platform empowers citizens volunteers to provide citizen’s feedback to government and for government to provide a quick response.
DevLIVE+ will be rolled out to all the BARMM LGUs as a data base system for evidence-based planning, programming, budgeting and governance. Meanwhile, the DevLIVE will also be rolled-out and will on-board projects and programmes of selected BARMM Ministries.
The full-blown phase of the LeAPS project is set to commence this year to a total of 12 LGUs and 11 Ministries in BARMM.
