  • Brunei: Building Of E-Govt Portal In Pipeline

  • Brunei: Call For Quality Civil Service

    His Royal Highness Prince Hj Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Deputy Sultan, said the civil service community should be capable of providing the best of services to the public judging by the high civil service to population ratio in the country.

    In his sabda while officiating an international Eastern Regional Organisation for Public Administration (EROPA) seminar yesterday, organised by Public Service Department and EROPA, His Royal Highness said the performance of our public services is now regularly benchmarked against some of the better, if not the best public services in both the regional and international spectrum.

  • Brunei: Citizens Have Yet To See `Fruits' Of Brunei's e-Govt

    The participation from government agencies competing for the award has been overwhelming. Is this a sign that the civil service is ready to transform into the New Public Management (NPM) style? Although we have observed changes, these are still way below public expectation considering that 13 years have lapsed since the introduction of the award scheme.
