Manama, April 13, 2014
Bahrain's Ministry of Work said it has witnessed an increase in the number of people accessing the ministry's electronic services which has risen to 5691 during the first quarter.
The electronic service allows the supplier to register the request through a user account on MoW’s page www.works.gov.bh or the eGovernment Portal www.bahrain.bh, after which he can provide the needed data and information on the product to undergo evaluation.
If the product turns out to be compatible with the Ministry’s measures, it is then initially certified and enrolled within a database that engineering directorates can refer to.
MoW's Information Technology director Hisham Satir said the e-Government Program, which aims to provide high quality services to citizens and residents by providing simple and easy to access electronic services, has contributed to saving time and efforts for users and directorates concerned with each service."
The total number of the ministry's website users for March rose to 1987, he added.
Satir said the ministry currently provides 10 eServices including the sanitary engineering complaints, sewage network connection equests, traffic signals maintenance requests, road defects reports, in addition to requesting permission for unusual loads, contractors qualification service, traffic diversion request service and building maintenance service, and finally the new materials & products evaluation Service.
According to him, the total number of users to the new materials and products evaluation service, belonging to the Materials Engineering Directorate, amounted to 98 users during the first quarter; which indicates that people have become more aware of the importance of eServices.
The materials and product evaluation service enables suppliers and factories to apply for product evaluation to make sure that they conform to the Ministry’s specifications, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
