A. About Infratrack App

Infratrack App (IA) is a simple, easy to use application developed by the Information Management Service (IMS),
designed to improve transparency and accountability in the monitoring of civil works projects implemented by the
Department. It uses geotagging technology to help the DPWH Management monitor the progress of the projects
virtually.

Infratrack has two major components, the mobile app to take geotagged photographs and the web application to see
all the geotagged photographs uploaded using the mobile app along with project details and the geographical location
of projects from the Multi-Year Programming and Scheduling Application (MYPS) and project and contract
implementation data from the Project and Contract Management Application (PCMA) implemented by Planning Service
(PS) and Bureau of Construction (BOC) respectively.

Figure 1: General Infratrack App Process Flow

B. Purpose of Infratrack App

To help improve transparency and accountability by ensuring that all civil works projects that are being implemented
by the Department are on the right location as planned and to provide evidence (photographs) of physical progress.
