Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, executed a ministerial committee to ensure prompt delivery of services to citizens.
The move came in the wake of complaints received from various quarters on delay made by government departments. The memorandum calls for improving cash management system, decentralisation of procurement, contracting and payment procedures, and empowering the ministries to undertake processing of transactions pertaining to their own personnel. The cabinet instructed the Dubai e-Government to look into the matters. It also agreed to bring the General Authority of Information and e-Government, in the Ministry of Finance and Industry, under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Governmental Development.
