The much awaited Ghana e-services Portal aimed at connecting all MDA's to the Ghana Government Online Services Project (e-Services) to deliver government services to the public has been launched.
The Minister for Communications, Hon. Haruna Iddisu, yesterday, in Accra, launched the Ghana e-Services Portal which is being piloted in eleven Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
The beneficiary MDAs include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Passport Office, Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Food and Drugs Board, Births and Deaths Registry, National Identification Authority, National Communication Authority, National Information Technology Agency, Ghana Tourism Authority, Minerals Commission, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, and Ghana Police Service CID Office.
In a keynote address, Mr Iddrisu noted that the infrastructure would help reduce corruption, promote transparency and efficiency in the delivery of government services to the public as well as help government departments and agencies reduce cost, improve the security of their databases and make it easier for government channel partners to plug into government databases for the delivery of services.
IPMC has been one of the technical team spearheading the project.
