Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman won seven awards at the 3rd GCC eGovernmentAward, Conference and Exhibition in Dubai on Monday. The awards were announced on the first day of the event honouring the leading eServices and the outstanding ICT solutions across the GCC countries.

Oman, represented by the Ministry of Interior, Muscat Municipality, the Public Authority for Consumer Protection and the Information Technology Authority (ITA), won seven awards out of 14 categories.
"It is no surprise that the Omani government organisations made it to the top honours again. Just a short while ago, Oman received two UN Public Service Awards in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The seven new awards won today is definitely a source of pride for every Omani and, at the same time, a call to work harder," Dr Salim Sultan Al Ruzaiqi, CEO of ITA and head of Oman's  delegation commented.

The winning organisations were Ministry of Interior for Best Government eService for its eElections system; Ministry of Manpower and Public Authority for Social Insurance for Best Government Interoperable Service with their Employment Collaboration Project; Ministry of Commerce and Industry for Best Government-to-Government Shared Service with its One Stop Shop system; Higher Education Admission Centre for its data exchange portal; Muscat Municipality for Best Government eParticipation Initiative with the Talk To Muscat call centre; Information Technology Authority for the Best e-Initiative for ITA's e-Inclusion project, and the excellence award which was awarded to the Public Authority for Consumer Protection.

Dr Al Ruzaiqi said: "This event is part of the efforts made during the previous two editions to serve the goals of the GCC countries to shift towards eGovernment. The fact that this award honouring ceremony has been organised alongside the two-day conference is by itself a huge step to create a culture of positive competition among the GCC countries' eGovernment initiatives, and an effort to achieve a better ICT experience for each and every beneficiary."
