The allocation for e-government which incorporates the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for the fiscal year 2011/2012 was among the topics deliberated at the meeting.

Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Haji Idris queried as to how many projects from last year's budget for ICT have been carried out. According to Yang Berhormat, it was understood that the implementation of ICT projects were somehow slow.

The Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister's Office, Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Singamanteri Retired Colonel Dato Seri Paduka Awang Haji Mohd Yasmin, explained the status of the projects until February 2011. He said a total of 121 e-government projects have been completed at a cost of 267.2 million dollars. Another 59 projects costing some 388.7 million dollars are still underway. Meanwhile 45 projects are being proposed with an allocation of 191.4 million dollars. The total budget for e-government agencies, related services and e-government authority amounts to 412.7 million dollars in accordance to contract value. This is equivalent to 50.6 percent of the planned estimate, with a balance of 402.4 million dollars.

A new market in the Brunei Muara District has not been completed, and Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Haji Pusat said the allocated money for its construction has not been used. Yang Berhormat asked whether the new market will replace the existing facility. The Minister of Home Affairs, Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin, said there are a number of works that need to be done. He explained, the new market is located in Gadong. So far, 74.76 percent of the project has been completed. It was supposed to be finished in January this year.
