As part of the efforts exerted by Qatar Digital Government (QDG) to support the digital transformation in Qatar, in line with the objectives set by its 2020 Strategy, QDG is organizing the Digital Government Excellence Award 2019. The Award seeks to highlight the best government entities that make outstanding contributions and achievements resulting in a significant transformation in daily operations and growth of the nation's digital economy.
The Award aims to instill a culture of excellence and positive competition between government entities in the field of digital transformation and the development of digital services by harnessing modern communication and information technologies in order to provide the best services to all categories of beneficiaries.
The Award, which is held annually, is one of the initiatives of QDG to value and highlight the efforts of government entities in the development and launch of digital services, as well as encouraging and motivating all parties to move forward with innovative digital solutions that support the country’s vision to build a knowledge-based economy.
This year, the Award’s edition celebrates the innovation and excellence of the use of Information Technology (IT) in the Government sector, in the belief that successful IT initiatives are worthy of recognition and promotion in order to encourage innovation and develop government institutions.
Entries will be evaluated and initiatives will be selected, based on their greatest impact in delivering services to the targeted audience, by an eminent panel of jury members who have been pioneers in their respective fields and have achieved a special contribution in the development of Qatar.
