The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has launched a new online database for government projects submitted for the Core Investment Programmes and Projects (CIP) of the Public Investment Programme (PIP) and the Three-Year Rolling Infrastructure Programme (TRIP).

The new system, called Public Investment Programme Online (PIPOL), is designed to allow government agencies to submit their priority programmes and projects online..

"PIPOL will provide information with regards to what results and targets are planned by the respective agencies and corporations, in relation to the new development plan which will be based on the Zero-plus-10 agenda of the Duterte administration," said Jonathan L. Uy, Staff Director of NEDA Public Investment, in a press release.

Uy said the PIP is already focusing on results with regards to government priorities, as a response to the move toward a performance-based management and monitoring system.

"The participation of government agencies and corporations in the use of PIPOL will facilitate the programming and budgeting process for the programmes and projects at the Development Budget Coordination Committee (DBCC), Infrastructure Committee (INFRACOM), Investment Coordination Committee (ICC), and Congress," Uy said in a briefing on 27 July 2016.

According to NEDA, the online database will allow them to review and validate agency submissions, as well as generate reports. The new system will also help them facilitate the ICC review and approval process for projects and programmes identified as CIP.
