"E-government" portal to be ready to provide interactive services this December in Kazakhstan
(Kazakhstan today) - The "e-government" portal is going to be ready to provide interactive services this December. Askar Zhumagaliyev, chairman of the Agency for computerisation and communication of RK, has stated this today, July 19, at a round table "Development of the e-government of RK and Kaznet," Kazakhstan Today correspondent reports.
"Currently the portal is providing more than 500 services, but virtually all of them are of informational character, which complies with the strategy of the "e-government" development in the republic," - he has said. He has reminded that the strategy of the "e-government" development in Kazakhstan suggests four phases: a informational phase (currently), an interactive phase (planned for late 2006 - 2008,) a transaction phase (2008 - 2009,) and an "information society" phase (2009.), reports Trend.
"The transition from the informational to the interactive phase suggests an opportunity of receiving certain permitting documents, references, and licenses via the internet and the "e-government" portal, - the Agency chairman has explained. He has also said that during the transition to the transaction phase of the "e-government" development it is planned to use the existing electronic payment system of the second level banks as a basis. "By 2009 the number of services provided by the "e-government" portal is going to increase to 900 services," - Mr. Zhumagaliyev has concluded.
