(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Oman has won seven awards at the third GCC eGovernment Award, Conference and Exhibition, which began in Dubai on Monday.

A press release stated that the awards ceremony, held on the first day of the event, honoured outstanding e-services and solutions in information and communications technology (ICT).

Oman, which won awards in seven out of 14 categories, is being represented at the event by the Ministry of Interior (MoI), Muscat Municipality, Public Authority for Consumer Protection (PACP) and the Information Technology Authority (ITA).

Dr Salim Sultan al Ruzaiqi, CEO, ITA, and head of Oman's delegation, was quoted in the release as saying, ''The awards come as no surprise. Oman also won two UN Public Service Awards in Bahrain recently. These awards are definitely a source of pride for every Omani and, at the same time, a call for working harder.''

MoI won the best government e-service award for its e-election system, and the Ministry of Manpower and Pension Authority of Social Insurance (PASI) won the best government interoperable service award for their employment collaboration project.

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry's One Stop Shop system won the award for the best government-to-government shared service, while the Higher Education Admission Center won for its data exchange portal.

Muscat Municipality won the best government e-participation initiative award for its Talk To Muscat call centre, and ITA won best e-initiative award for its e-inclusion project. The excellence award was won by PACP.

The event will end on Wednesday.
