Mampu: 90% of government services to be online by 2015

By 2015, up to 90 per cent of government services are targeted to be available as e-counter and online services, according to the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU).

Its director-general, Mohamad Zabidi Zainal, said that by next year, under the paperless government programme, 70 per cent of correspondence, memos and minutes of meetings and 90 per cent of the calling of meetings would go online.

“Apart from increasing the efficiency of the business concerned, the efforts would also contribute to the strategic objective achievement for the green technology initiatives in the information and communication technology (ICT)business,” he told reporters after opening a conference of chief information officers today.

He said the government is drafting new methods in ICT management, known as Cloud Computing, and added that this has been applied in 36 government agencies so far and would be expanded to 100 more agencies in the future.

Beside that, he said, MAMPU is always taking steps to ensure that the security features in all systems and websites under its operation will be difficult to hack by irresponsible people.
