Authority recognised for efforts to switch to m-government

The Emirates Identity Authority has won the Arab Excellence Awards Academy’s “Excellence Shield” in the e-transactions category as part of the Arab e-Government Excellence Award.

The laurel comes in recognition of Emirates ID’s efforts to facilitate the switch to m-government in the UAE.

Emirates ID had launched several strategic projects to realise its vision of a sophisticated and integrated ID management system that would contribute to the nation’s economic transformation and boost its security and global competitiveness. The award comes after Emirates ID successfully tested its ID for e-payment through banking and financial institutions, a step towards achieving the UAE’s vision of attaining greater financial inclusion.

The capability to link the national ID to the UAE’s wages protection system was considered a breakthrough.

The award was received by Nasser Al Mazrouei, executive director of service centres operations, in a ceremony on Tuesday. It was attended by representatives of ministries and government agencies, senior officials, experts and stakeholders.

Recently, Emirates ID completed e-links with nine key government entities, raising to 14 the number of government agencies already e-linked to it.

The e-link project is aimed at maintaining an up-to-date population register. It will facilitate the adoption of the ID card, support-decision making in the country and develop government services. The advantages are manifold — streamlining procedures, reducing costs and ranking among the world’s best practices.

The ID card has replaced all other identity verification documents in banking transactions, reducing the time needed for opening a bank account.
