The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) has signed a contract for the development of the new version of Qatar e-Government Portal (Hukoomi), which will be completely redesigned and restructured, using the latest technologies and incorporating a wide range of services for government, semi-government, and private entities.
The announcement of the new project of Hukoomi portal comes within the framework of MoTC's keenness to further develop the e-government portal and add innovative features that support the centralisation of customers' journey, simplify users' procedures, and meet the needs of all segments of the public, taking into account persons with disabilities. In addition the project is meant to support the new portal with artificial intelligence technologies and open data, which are accessible on all kinds of computers, tablets, and smartphones.
At the heart of its strategy, the new portal puts building an integrated platform that contains all the information and services needed by all segments of the country, including individuals, visitors, companies, and government entities. It also aims to accelerate the pace of digital transformation, unify the structure of digital services systems, link between government and non-government entities, and take full advantage of the digital government shared services.
The portal will also be designed to be a secure, reliable platform with the highest international standards of security and privacy, as well as scalable and updatable, allowing more features to be added over time.
E-Government Portal Department Manager at MoTC Tareq al-Emadi said: "With the new Hukoomi portal, we are taking a leap forward in our e-government strategy and creating new ways to engage citizens and residents in the government services and policy-making, through developing a flexible, user-friendly platform to deliver digital government services through a unified interface, which enables the Government of Qatar to seize special opportunities offered by the new technological innovation."
Al-Emadi added: "The State of Qatar is embracing a fast track in digital transformation and enabling advanced technology to improve human life. Through the continuous development of Hukoomi, we seek to enable individuals and companies to access the information they need about government programmes and services."
Khalid al-Mannai, Vice Chairman, Executive Committee of Al Mannai Corporation, the company responsible for the project's execution, said: "We are delighted to partner with MoTC on the new version of Hukoomi portal, which will reflect the latest technology and introduce the next generation of portals for a smoother, easier experience for users."
The new portal will help achieve Qatar National Vision 2030 and the objectives of the National Development Strategy 2018-2022, in terms of developing a supportive infrastructure for the national economy that is characterised by sustainability, high quality, and the ability to keep abreast of the latest smart technological systems, as well as an ICT infrastructure that is of high quality and safe from risks.
