COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF DEVELOPMENT OF GOVERNMENT CHIEF


INFORMATION OFFICER (GCIO) IN US, THAILAND AND JAPAN
Proposed Approaches for the Philippines

Summary

GCIO in US, Thailand and Japan developed in different time, surrounding varied
circumstances. The development of GCIO in this study was compared based on: rationale
for the creation of GCIO, policy and implementing mechanisms, core competencies,
institutionalization, and existing challenges. The two major roles and responsibilities of CIO in
the government sector were expressed in their basic functions: enterprise leadership in
information and IT management and provision to support future projects for competitive
business value, and the management/oversight of the daily delivery of required I/IT
services. In Thailand and Japan, these functions were largely related to the implementation
of e-government, and utilization of ICT as investment for national development.
GCIO in US was created through the Clinger-Cohen Act 1996, and created support
organizations within federal agencies to assist the CIOs. Thailand introduced GCIO upon the
recommendation of the "Utilisation of IT in the Public Sector, Revision 2" in 1998. Designated
GCIOs were given trainings and programs to enable them to perform their functions. In
Japan, GCIO was mandated by a provision under e-Japan Strategy in 2001. To assist the
GCIOs in Japan, who are usually the Director-General of ministries and agencies, technical
advisers from the private sector were engaged to provide expertise on technology and
business analysis.
The comparative analysis was done to serve as basis for the development of GCIO in the
Philippines. Currently, the country doesnt have policies to address leadership gap in the
management of ICT in government agencies. As such, approaches are proposed in this
study: policy mechanism (ensure the passage of bill proposing the designation of GCIOS, or
create alternative ways, similar to the strategy of Thailand and Japan); enabling
mechanism (in anticipation of GCIO, provide capacity building trainings to government
officials who are given the responsibilities to implement e-government); and support
mechanism (promote the role of GCIO by collaborating agencies or individuals from the
government, business and IT sector, academe, non-government associations, and
international associations).
Likewise, this paper recommends that GCIOs in the Philippines, should serve as e-leaders
(with unique combination of skills, attitudes, knowledge, professional experience, apt for the
demands managing information resources, which include, technology, manpower,
authority, among others); partners in strategy building; and integrative force in their
agencies.
