Myanmar has introduced a computer based e-Government system to replace paper filing government work system in the new administrative capital of Nay Pyi Taw.
The cost of e-Government system will come around 12 million US dollars, which includes Electronic Document Management System and Government Personal Management System. Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications will implement the system. The system not only inter-links government departments but also connects the Data Center established at the end of last year. So far, Myanmar has launched some e-government systems including e-Visa, e-Passport, e-Procurement and e-D (departure) form for effective management of government bodies. The Government has signed a contract with two business companies of Myanmar to link its 38 ministries to a high-speed Internet network and computerize its personnel management system.
