The City Government of Iriga has placed 7th in the E-Readiness Leadership Award given by the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT). The award was given during the Electronic Business Permit and Licensing System (eBPLS) Summit at the Novotel Manila, Araneta Center last July 18, 2017.

This success was made possible thru the concerted effort of former Mayor Ronald Felix Y. Alfelor spearheading this initiative, all the department heads headed by Mr. Wayne Olaso of ICIPBAC, the Iriga Rinconada ICT Council, and the Irigueños who actively participated and cooperated during the evaluation.

The E-Readiness Leadership Award is based on the e-Readiness survey for cities and municipalities conducted by the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) together with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Department of Trade and Industry.
