The Municipality yesterday launched “Prism” (Projects Information System Management), a system that will provide engineers, consultants, contractors, and others with a comprehensive database on all civic projects.

The civic body move comes with a view to making its procedures available online and to give a boost to its ongoing e-governance drive.

Rashad Bukhash, the director of the General Projects Department, said the online system formed part of the civic body’s efforts to maintain transparency in decision making on awarding projects and their execution, and simplifying procedures for its internal and external customers.

“This system will enable project managers and senior management to follow up the progress of work of every project regularly. Because the system is available on the net, all those concerned, including private consultants and contractors, will be able to access it through specially-assigned user names,” said Bukhash.

“This will also improve communication process between the municipality and its customers and save time for all parties involved,” added Bukhash.

Bukhash also said all procedures related to the DM projects would be automated so that the consultants and contractors could submit drawings, plans, project programmes, reports, invoices and approval applications through the Internet.
