The GOV.PH or National Government Portal (NGP) is a single window uniting all web-based government content to maximize efficiency and provide rapid, high-quality services to citizens. It enables the citizens to find services quicker to reach in a single website. The GOV.PH also aims to propagate a uniform government look and feel while increasing government transparency.
It is one of the primary steps to advance the Philippines' ranking in the E-Government Development Index and propel it to Level 4 of the UN service model for e-governance, which is the transactional stage where users can actually pay for services and other transactions online.
The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) is mandated by law (Republic Act 10844) to harmonize all national ICT plans and initiatives including the NGP.

A well-informed citizenry is imperative in a strong democracy. The public's right to information is enshrined in our Constitution, and a national portal, which is a platform for open government data and information, fulfills this obligation. Also, international organizations like the United Nations are visiting national portals to establish benchmarks and gauge the performance of countries in e-governance.
