The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) has reviewed the minister’s plan to develop and build digital capability of employees at ministries and authorities to be transferred to the New Administrative Capital (NAC).
The review came during a videoconference meeting with leaders and representatives from various ministries and authorities.
During the meeting, the ministry clarified that the institutional development system aims to create a business model within government institutions using digital transformation. This will support their ability to adapt to the requirements and satisfaction of citizens, and will work on several aspects.
This will include mechanising work cycles, developing work environments, and developing and building digital capabilities of workers. It will occur in addition to changing the digital organisational culture, and ensuring operational excellence.
The development of digital capabilities comes as part of institutional development that will enhance government performance in the long-term. It is also anticipated that it will support governance and transparency mechanisms, whilst fighting corruption and facilitating citizen access to distinct government services.
The meeting discussed the mechanisms for selecting trainees according to their training needs and their roles. It will use digital assessment databases conducted by the Information Systems Institute of the Armed Forces and link them to the database for development and capacity building that will cover about 52,500 employees in 114 ministries and bodies.
