Philippines: Philippines plans to digitise government procurement function

26 Nov 2018: The Philippine government is overhauling its procurement system as part of wide-ranging plans to digitise financial management systems and improve transparency. Budget secretary Benjamin Diokno said this would lead to a “more innovative, effective and responsive government in the long term”. Budget and treasury management systems are also set to be updated. Diokno was speaking last week at an event on public sector productivity.
