Government Launches Paperless Cabinet

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has launched the e- Cabinet 2020 business paperless project as part of a wider programme to modernise the public sector and include the development of electronic systems so as to speed up the internal functions of Government and improve efficiency.

Addressing members in Harare yesterday, Mnangagwa said the e Cabinet will provide an easy and secure way of storing Government records.

. “Today’s event marks the completion of phase one of the e-Cabinet project which will see the Cabinet secretariat carry out paperless administrative and secretarial functions,

“This is indeed part of the contemporary ways of conducting meetings and storage of information. Through this system, members of Cabinet will now be able to conduct all their work within the Cabinet room on an electronic platform. Furthermore, the e-Cabinet system will result in a robust database which facilitates easy access to stored records of Government. He said.

The President said phase two of the e Cabinet project will be launched by the end of the second quarter of this year.

“However, we will continue to distribute physical copies of Cabinet documents outside the Cabinet room until phase two of the project when the Wide Area Network is completed. Phase two of the project is expected to be completed by end of the second quarter of this year.” He said.

Meanwhile, Mnangangwa urged all relevant stakeholders to ensure that the system is secured and adaptive to the new technology so as to avoid loss of data and to provide security.

“Meanwhile, I exhort all relevant stakeholders to ensure that the necessary security circuits are in place and constantly upgraded to prevent undesirable occurrences and loss of data. The system must be equally adaptive to new technologies as they evolve to enhance public administration efficiencies towards the realisation of Vision 2030,” Mnangagwa said.
