Online projects management system launched
Dubai , July 31, 2007
Dubai Municipality has launched an integrated online projects management system.
This system will provide engineers, consultants, contractors and all those concerned a comprehensive database on all civic projects, said an official spokesman.
Director of General Projects Department at Dubai Municipality Rashad Bukhash noted that the online service forms part of the civic body's efforts to maintain transparency in decision-making and simplifying procedures for its internal and external customers.
He said the system, named Prism (Projects Information System Management), which is introduced for the first time in the region, will facilitate follow-up of civic projects from planning stage to the final delivery stage.
'This system will enable project managers and senior management to follow up progress of work of every project in a constant manner. Because the system is available on the net, all those concerned including private consultants and contractors will be able to access the same through specially-assigned user names,' said Bukhash.
He added that the system is being introduced in line with the government's policy of maintaining transparency in the decision-making process with regard to awarding projects and their execution.
He added that all procedures related to projects would be automated so that consultants and contractors dealing with Dubai Municipality can submit drawings, plans, project programmes, reports, invoices, and approval applications through Internet.
'This will also smoothen communication process between the municipality and its customers and save time for all parties involved thereby meeting a strategic objective of fast delivery of civic services,' he said.
The municipality had earlier held a training workshop for engineers at the General Projects Department, representatives of private consultant firms, and contracting companies familiarizing them with the system and how to use it.-TradeArabia News Service
