The cost will extend anyplace between about P80 billion and P200 billion, contingent upon the kind of system the legislature will assemble and how it will oversee it.

 ICT Secretary Rodolfo Salalima suggested that the administration manufacture and deal with the system, with privately owned businesses permitted to rent it.

"That is why we only have rough estimates for the costs. It could still change depending on what the President approves," Salima said.

Salima said the government is open for foreign and private sectors partner and there are already two big Chinese firms drew closer to DICT and offered their services.

“Some Chinese suppliers have come to us already and we are weighing all options... [it’s] the two big companies in China, but its just establishing contacts, talking to each other on future possibilities,” the DICT chief said.
