"The Ministry is keen to adopt a continually evolving approach in order to keep pace with modern developments and requirements needed to shift to electronic-based governance, in which the UAE has been a proactive advocate," Yunis Haji Al Khouri, under secretary of the Ministry of Finance and Industry commented.
"Injazat Data Systems has successfully worked with many government organisations, and we are convinced that the company can deliver the results we require," he added.
Specific details of the assessment were not available.
