As part of its strong push towards e-governance, LGU Gubat launched recently the Integrated Business Permits and Licensing System (iBPLS), a software developed by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) that enables LGUs and their constituents to apply and process building permits and occupancy permits electronically.

The iBPLS also allows for the electronic processing of business permits, which is being covered by the previous Electronic Business Permits and Licensing System or eBPLS of DICT.

The development of the iBPLS is pursuant to Section 26 of R.A. 11032 which mandates DICT, in coordination with other concerned agencies, to automate business-related transactions by developing the necessary software and technology-neutral platforms and secure infrastructure that is web-based and accessible to the public.
