President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III on Wednesday presented cashless program and open data platform as part of his administration’s reforms against corruption.

In his keynote speech on Good Governance Summit, PNoy unveiled the use of a Cashless Purchase Card (CPC) system for government agencies and Open Data Philippines, a portal that will collate all relevant government data for the use of public.

The CPC will take place in the first quarter of 2014, together with the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department of National Defense (DND) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) as pilot agencies for implementation.

The CPC will resemble ordinary credit cards but with more restrictions suited to government’s reforms and suspicious use of the cards can be tracked easily.
The Open Data Philippines, meanwhile, will be up starting tomorrow and can be accessed through www.data.gov.ph.

The President said the CPC system and the Open Data platform are only some of the items on the administration’s long list of reforms. (PIA)
