The National Information Technology Board (NITB) has agreed to announce the new version of the E-office to all federal government divisions and organizations under its control.
The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications has suggested a new scheme list for this aim, which includes an E-office replication project for Rs. 350 million throughout all divisions of the federal government.
The MoITT has recommended a budget of Rs. 75 million for the E-office Project Phase-II for the next fiscal year. This project entails a long-term use of the existing E-office as well as the introduction of the new version in all federal government divisions and over 500 hundred departments.
According to the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications, the federal government spent more than Rs. 2000 million on ICT infrastructure for the project’s execution. The prior government established a group, chaired by the Cabinet Division Secretary, to assess the deployment, readiness, and adaption levels in federal ministries and develop a strategy for moving intra- and inter-ministerial communications to the E-office platform.
The meeting was held multiple times and presented its conclusions to the federal government in the form of recommendations. The NITB does not have any regular or contract personnel to carry out the project. Since August 2021, the project’s PC-IV has been in the cabinet division.
