The General Directorate of Passports (Jawazat) won the e-Government Achievement Award (Injaz) in the category of collaboration with government agencies to deliver better services.
More than 184 projects were in the competion for the award.
The category is designed for government agencies that make optimal use of information and communications technology to effectively deliver e-services to other agencies.
The agencies do this by implementing an integrated e-services system, which ensures swift completion of transactions with other authorities. This would provide better services to the community.
The award aims to exhibit role models that encourage and inspire other government agencies to adopt e-services instead of bureaucratic traditional methods.
The General Directorate of Passports received the award from Mohammed Jamil Mulla, minister of communications and information technology.
The e-Government Achievement Award is organized by YESSER, the Kingdom’s e-government program.
The award comprises seven categories: Delivering better service to individuals of the community, collaboration with government agencies to deliver better services, augmentation of the national economy, e-services through smart devices, community electronic participation and e-leadership.
