The Departments of Trade and Industry (DTI), Interior and Local Government (DILG), and Information and Communication Technology (DICT) recently signed a Joint Memorandum Circular enjoining all cities and municipalities in the country to streamline business permits and licensing system (BPLS) using revised standard.

Under the new JMC, local government units are directed to streamline business permits and licensing systems, with processing time cut to two days for new business registration and one day for renewals. The number of procedures for registration has been set at a maximum of three steps for both new applicants and renewals.

All LGUs are also directed to use a unified form, both in print and electronic form, with only two signatories (Mayor and Treasurer/Business Permits and Licensing Head with alternate approving signatories) required for business permits.

In addition to streamlining, the circular also recommends that local governments automate and computerize business transactions to be able to speed up frontline services.

As of June 2016, a majority of the local governments across the country have complied with the 2010 circular including the City Government of Valenzuela. According to DILG-Local Government Academy, a total of 1,419 (93 percent) out of 1,516 local governments (excluding Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao local governments) were reported to have completed the streamlining program

The National Competitiveness Council believes that automation of government transactions will bring substantial improvement in terms of speed and efficiency of rendering services, and will make it possible for LGUs to achieve one-day business registration. Also, it will significantly eliminate corruption in the bureaucracy, as it will reduce personal or face-to-face interaction.
