MUNICIPALITY OF NUEVA ERA, ILOCOS NORTE.
Major Adviser: Wilben Christie R. Pagtaconan, MSIT
Developments and changes in the government setting are necessary and integral components of
the framework in order to provide an improved, favorable and sustainable living and working
environment. As they become systematically more complex through interconnected frameworks and
increasingly rely on the use of information and communication technology to meet the needs of their
citizens, the smart city concept has been developed as a strategy to work with different cities. This
strategic plan includes a high-level structure, focused on local government and stakeholder
engagement, to direct and organize smart city programs. Information System Strategic Plan (ISSP) is
an essential practice that helps organizations define strategic applications and match the approach of
an organization with successful information systems in order to achieve the goals of the organization.
This research study developed an Information Systems Strategic Plan (ISSP) for the municipality
of Nueva Era, Ilocos Norte. The ISSP is an initiative that focuses on people first, recognizing its civic
leadership and making the municipality of Nueva Era an excellent place to live and work and making
sure that the business operations of the municipality government are supported by Information
Technology. The components that are used in the Information System Strategic Plan were based on
the ISSP template given by the Information and Communication Technology Department (DICT).
The ISSP covered the municipality's 3-year plan.
Finally, the adoption and implementation of ISSP can transform the municipality into a more
developed and civilized town through maximizing the utility of technological resources to improve its
quality of services for both residing and working citizens of Nueva Era, Ilocos Norte.
