MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has been authorized to tap a third-party service provider for the implementation and service management of the Philippines’ Covid-19 vaccine information management system, Malacañang said Wednesday.

The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Diseases has also authorized the DICT to formulate the standards to determine the qualifications of the third-party service provider.
