With the adoption and usage of IT in the government workplace still low, the permanent secretaries and deputy permanent secretaries have been asked not to remain passive but instead become the driving force in the country's e-Government transformation.

According to Pehin Datu Singamanteri Col (Rtd) Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Hj Mohd Yasmin bin Hj Umar, the Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister's Office who is also the Minister-in-Charge of e-Government, statistics from the EGNC (e-Government National Centre) indicated that only 15 per cent of the registered government e-mail accounts are active, while statistics on GEMS absorption rate showed that less than 26 per cent of GEMS accounts created for all government employees are used.

"As the Minister-in-Charge of e-Government and after monitoring the situation and the progress in the last 18 months, I can simply put that I am not happy with the current state of e-Government in the country," the minister wrote in a speech read out by his representative Dato Paduka Hj Matsatejo bin Sokiaw, Permanent Secretary ' (Energy) at the Prime Minister's Office.

The speech was delivered during the opening ceremony for the e-Government Executive Training Programme for Permanent Secretaries and Deputy Permanent Secretaries organised by the e-Government Innovation Centre, UBD, in collaboration with the EGNC.

Also present were the former prime minister of the Republic of Korea, Dr Un Chan Chung,- Korean Ambassador Mr Byung-Koo Choi, Bindu Lohani the Vice-President of Asian Development Bank, and UBD's Vice-Chancellor Dato Paduka Dr Hj Zulkarnain bin Hj Hanafi.

In his speech, the minister also said, "In my judgement over the 18 months, many of us in the government have the mentality of using the computer only as a typewriter.

"This is totally unacceptable, and we have to do a complete paradigm shift. We must ensure the IT system that we use will contribute towards the efficiency of our work and maximise our output."

According to the minister, in 2010 the e-Government review was conducted to identify key areas for improvements, such as enhanced governance structures, rationalisation of e-Government organisations, full-time ministry CIOs, developments of e-services, as well as the adoptions of the UN e-Government index ranking and ICT competency for all levels. He added that since the review, a number of e-Government projects costing millions of dollars has also been made, but that a general change of mindset is very much needed.
