"Paperless Panama" Tender in August

The "Paperless Panama" project, worth $25 million, will be put out to tender on Thursday August 4.

Friday, July 29, 2011

Eduardo Jaen, manager of the Government Innovation Authority, said that they will be contracting out the first stage of the project, worth $12.5 million, adding that the award will go to the bidder with the lowest price.

The initiative seeks to create business systems that will interconnect all state databases, simplifying procedures and avoiding the need for citizens to provide documents that already exist in public databases.

Jaén spoke to PanamaAmerica.com, and "stressed that this platform will allow the use of digital electronic files, so users will no longer have to bring paper documents, including photocopies of their identity cards, neither will the state have to receive and store millions of forms every year.
He noted that processes will be quicker, because half of the delays in paperwork are caused by the excessive time it takes documents to be passed from one desk to another. "
