All government agencies and other entities with projected Information Technology resource requirements are required to submit their Information Systems Development Plans (Information Systems Strategic Plans) to the Department of Budget and Management for approval, upon the recommendation of the National Computer Center, to serve as basis for rationalizing the allocation of government funds for this purpose.
• Executive Order No. 190

The ISSP is considered as a tool to ensure ICT application in strategic areas of government concern.
