The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) - Aurora lauded the Municipality of San Luis headed by Mayor Ariel A. de Jesus for successfully launching the electronic Business Permit Licensing System (eBPLS) in the Province of Aurora.
“The automation of the BPLS using the eBPLS software is one of the programs being implemented by the DICT, DTI and DILG in making the LGUs to be more business friendly and competitive. This is in compliance to RA 11032 or Ease of Doing Business Law which intends to streamline the issuance of business permits and licenses in the LGUs.
“Sa road clearing kasama nyo kami. Sa NCOV prevention pati anti-rabies at HIV prevention andyan din kami at mas lalong sa eBPLS, kasama nyo rin kami”, said Atty. Ofelio A. Tactac, Jr., DILG Aurora Provincial Director during ceremonial launching on March 05, 2020 at San Luis, Aurora.
During the launching, eBPLS Project Manager Teresita B. Roberto led the briefing on eBPLS, focusing on the provisions of RA 11032 in implementing faster business permits processing time using the eBPLS software developed by the Department Information and Communications Technology (DICT). She also noted that in Aurora, 7 out of 8 municipalities have successfully implemented the eBPLS and is one the most ICT-ready Province in Region 3, having implemented several internet-based programs including the provision of free public wifi.

Padre, representatives from the business sector (Landbank of the Philippines, Development Bank of the Philippines, Aurora Bank), and municipal officials and functionaries. The municipality of Casiguran is targeted to conclude the launching of the eBPLS in the Province of Aurora.
