Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 26th / Trend, H.Valiyev /
The Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of Azerbaijan added e-applications for various licensures into its "e-government" portal (ehdis.az), a report published by the portal said on Wednesday.
Currently, the ministry offers 25 e-services.
Also, services provided by the State Committee for Family, Women and Child Affairs are also integrated in the portal. Currently, an online application for international adoption is also available.
"E-government" contains 36 state agencies and integrates over 168 online services.
A number of state institutions also appealed to the agency in hopes of joining the portal; this process will be carried out in stages depending on the readiness of their individual IT-infrastructures.
The "e-government" portal is a key tool in supporting interaction with citizens as well as with the public and private sectors.
The portal is intended to reduce the number of documents requested by citizens, given that different agencies will communicate with each other electronically.
Access to the portal is through the use of electronic digital signatures (EDS), the identification data of private businesses and citizens, as well as through the use of verification data (username and password), that may be obtained upon registration with the portal.
