Ever wondered how much IT manpower you would need to run a country?, about 4070 to be exact for the Philippines (as of 2003 and excluding Government Owned Corporations)
The Department of Finance had the most no. of IT classified employees with 868. Not quite surprising considering that the DOF has the BIR, SSS, GSIS, Customs, Treasury and PDIC, which looks like data heavy Bureaus
Before we start thinking however that the DOF should seriously start considering creating software with that much no. of programmers, the actual bulk comprising that figure are Computer Operators (341.) Same with the DILG which has 340 while the DOH has 274 Data Entry Operators.
The award for the least no. of IT classified personnel belongs to the Judiciary, which had a grand total of 0.
