Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) has made a major contribution to the implementation of e-Government in Brunei by undertaking a detailed review of the programme.
The BSP consultancy team conducted an independent progress assessment on the e-Government project for the Ministry of Communications, based on the company's extensive experience with the computerisation of work processes. The review lasted from the end of May to mid-August, and was carried out by a team of eight professionals from BSP, Shell Group, and Shell's technology partner, Cisco Systems, best known worldwide as a leading supplier of network management solutions. The resulting evaluation encompasses the technical, commercial and organisational aspects of the program in its cost analyses and examination of government objectives and strategies. It also suggests recommendations for improvements to the first five-year phase of the e-Government project, which commenced in 2001. The contents of the confidential report from BSP will be considered in the design of e-Government plans for the next five years.
