How to go about the submission of ROLL IT Project Proposals

Phase 1:
Industry stakeholders must identify potential industry road projects, which will greatly benefit both the industry and community. Potential projects which will be prioritized by the DTI are those which will benefit any of the DTI’s Priority List of Industries as mentioned in the ROLLERS Guidelines. The industry stakeholders will then submit the list of identified potential projects to the DTI-DPWH Regional Offices. BOI Sectoral Champions may be given a furnished copy of the proposal to inform and enable them to help in monitoring the road project proposal.

Phase 2:
The Regional Technical Working Groups (RTWG) which is composed of the DTI and DPWH Regional Offices, as supervised by the Regional Directors, will then evaluate, validate, and prioritize the proposed road projects based on industry importance, as determined by the DTI, and technical necessity, as determined by the DPWH. The DTI and DPWH Regional Directors will then submit the prioritized proposed projects which passed the requirements of the ROLL IT criteria or ROLLERS Guidelines to the DTI-DPWH Central Technical Working Group (CTWG).

Phase 3:
The CTWG will then further review, evaluate, and validate the submissions of the RTWGs to ensure compliance with the ROLLERS Guidelines before consolidating all the submissions and drafting the final list in preparation for the finalization of the ROLL IT Program.

Phase 4:
The DTI-DPWH Champions will then review the program and recommend for deliberation and approval of the proposed final list of ROLL IT projects to the DTI and DPWH Secretaries.

Phase 5:
The DTI and DPWH Secretaries will then include the approved ROLL IT projects in the annual budget proposal of DPWH for submission to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) for submission and final deliberation of the House Committees.

The ROLL IT Convergence Program will be one of the strong platforms of the promise of a Golden Age of Infrastructure for the Philippines, through a target of national infrastructure budget of 7% of Gross Domestic Product, roughly equivalent to around P8.2 trillion.
