This week the Minister of Manpower HE Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Al Bakri, CEO of Information Technology Authority (ITA) Dr Salim Bin Sultan Al Ruzaiqi and Priit Alamäe, CEO of multinational full-service strategic change and technology company Nortal signed a contract to develop a system for work licensing and permits to make processes and service delivery seamless and more transparent. The OMR 3.755 million (EUR 9.38 million) project will run for two years.
According to Peeter Smitt, Middle East region Managing Director at Nortal, the aim of this major project led by Ministry of Manpower and ITA is to reform the processes related to managing foreign labour force in the country – starting from simplifying the application phase to enabling the ministry to better plan and manage the processes. “This is a significant e-government project that will serve a wide range of citizens and will transform the service,” added Smitt.
In July 2016, Nortal finalised a major government project in Oman – Invest Easy. A project led by Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) and Information Technology Authority (ITA) with a goal to transform the way businesses operate in Oman by spearheading the first true e-government initiative in the country. With optimized business registry processes and various supporting online services, Invest Easy – a single point of access to all government e-services for entrepreneurs – has gone well beyond a typical software development project, effecting also legislation changes and had substantial impact on local business environment and climate in Oman.
