During Project Design The Government of Uzbekistan has established a coordination committee to oversee the prioritization of e-government applications and the development of a 3-year investment plan. The Ministry of Economy and Uzinfocom (a government agency responsible for technical support to ICT related activities in government) have been closely involved in policy and technical details to ensure a succesful delivery of this project.
During Project Implementation

Under the TA an Inception Workshop was held where the individual consultants presented their initial findings of the business process review of the three services being support by the TA: (1) business registration, (2) property registration, and (3) procurement of public goods. The consultants are now working to finalize their reports. This initial knowledge base will be transferred to the firm once it is hired and fielded.

The TA is also coordinating with the World Bank and the UNDP, who are also supporting e-government reforms in Uzbekistan.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

The TA has already engaged individual consultants and resource persons (both national and international) and the selection of a consulting firm to conduct business process review and reengineering (BPR) in three priority government service areas is well advanced. The government is committed to reform the three critical services being covered by the TA including: (1) business registration, (2) property registration, and (3) procurement of public goods.

Based on the outcome of BPR the TA will support the Ministry for Information Technologies and Communications Development (MITCD) in developing/improving through piloting projects in above service areas as well as integrating them within a Single Portal of Interactive State Services (SPISS) at The consultants will be hired in accordance with the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
