The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) launched on its website an automated system for easier submission of application, evaluation, and certification of local manufacturers. The microsite was also redesigned to provide more information, advisories, and announcements for its users and clients.

“Streamlining and automation are the only ways to move forward if we want to eliminate red tape in the bureaucracy. That is why even before the pandemic, we have been implementing digitalization efforts in government services as part of the Ease of Doing Business program,” said DTI Secretary Ramon M. Lopez.

“The launch of this microsite is our way of making government services more customer-centric for our people and more accessible with a tap on the screen or with a click of a button. This is also the realization of President Duterte’s declaration to eliminate long lines and to make all possible services online.” he added

The new user-friendly microsite features links to its online Domestic Bidder’s (DoBid) Preference Program application form, as well as access to verification of application and frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding the DoBid Program.

Additionally, DoBid advisories and announcements are also posted on the website for easier access to the latest DoBid news.

The microsite was launched on 24 June 2021 and is continuously being updated and improved to keep its users posted on DoBid’s latest activities. The DoBid microsite may be accessed thru this link: ♦
