Mandalay moves closer to e-government with data centre

The Mandalay regional government has launched a data centre as part of its efforts to implement an e-government system.

“With this system, people will be able to observe the government’s performance and access government services more easily and quickly,” said Mandalay Chief Minister U Zaw Myint Maung during the launch of the centre last Thursday.

“This is the part of a continuing effort to bring the government and its services closer to the public,” U Zaw Myint Maung said.

A tender to build the centre was called in 2017.

Mandalay Region’s efforts to set up its e-government system began with the setting up of a committee and the eMandalay web portal in 2016 to offer services to the public from the government’s departments.

The project calls for the setting up of a comprehensive “level 4” web portal, establishing a data centre in Mandalay to act as an information centre of government offices in northern Myanmar, the establishment of an e-department, and the creation of a mobile application for visitors to Bagan, said U Aung Kyaw Soe, associate secretary of the E-Government System Implementation Committee.

Mandalay’s current web portal, which is at level 1, can provide information, forms and information on procedures to the public for 71 of the 153 government departments.

“Level 4 will have an electronic payment system that will allow the online payment of fees to the regional development committee,” said U Aung Kyaw Soe.
