WAM ABU DHABI, 10th November, 2013 (WAM) — As part of its role to implement the U.A.E.’s e-transformation strategy at Federal level, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has announced the launch of a brand new e-portal to automatically assess the quality of the U.A.E. Federal entities websites.
The new system enables government entities to perform a self-assessment of their websites at any given time and get a detailed report about their level of compliance to the set standards. The new system helps federal entities to set and implement new development plans to improve their e-presence and achieve the highest quality levels.
The TRA has taken a series of measures to improve the e-presence of all U.A.E. Federal government entities and raise their level of e-readiness while supporting their transformation into smart government providers. The criteria used by the authority in the assessment process include articles related to ease-of-use, content and other technical aspects of the websites, as well as their overall appearance.
“Achieving progress on the smart and e-government transformation journey requires more coordination and truly concerted efforts,” said Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim, TRA Director-General.
“This appears clearly in the new assessment process of government entities websites as it involves evaluation, consulting, training and on-going exchange of ideas and views. I would like take this opportunity to acknowledge the great cooperation we’ve witnessed already within all government entities, which has had the greatest impact on what our nation can achieve and how the U.A.E. emerges today as one of the global leaders in the field of e-presence.” “We highly value the qualitative leap we achieved in 2012 according to the e-presence index in the global e-government readiness report issued by the United Nations, where the U.A.E. jumped from 99th place to 7th globally. This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the great efforts and dedicated work of all our government entities,” he added.
