Dear Jonathan,

Greetings from PCOO!

Thank you for your request dated 16 June 2017 under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request:

You asked for the timeline of eFOI enrolment of government agencies not yet in the portal.

Response to Request:

Your FOI request is APPROVED.

PCOO issued FOI Memorandum Circular No. 3, S. 2017 last 25 April 2017 requiring all national government agencies (NGAs) to enrol in the eFOI portal on or before 25 November 2017. PCOO regularly conducts on-boarding workshops to capacitate the FOI receiving officers (FROs) and decision makers (FDMs) of NGAs in the process, system, and technical operation of the eFOI portal.

As of 19 June 2017, a total of 108 NGAs (16 departments, 74 attached agencies, and 18 GOCCs) are on-boarded in eFOI. There are 6 departments still to be on-boarded. They are:

- Department of Education (DepEd)
- Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA)
- Department of National Defense (DND)
- Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)
- Department of Tourism (DOT)
- Office of the President (OP-Proper)

Specific dates for these departments' on-boarding is not yet available as we have yet to agree on training dates. However, all 6 have confirmed that they are interested in joining eFOI.

On the other hand, PCOO does have a timeline/schedule for the on-boarding of a number of bureaus, attached agencies and GOCCs.

June 2017:
- NAPOCOR (DOE) [done last 16 June 2017]

July 2017:

We hope this information suffices.

Thank you.
