Dubai Government on track to become 100% paperless


Dubai government is on track to go fully paperless by the end of 2021.

Dubai Statistics Centre is the latest entity to receive the ‘100% Paperless Stamp’ by the Smart Dubai Department.

It is one of only four government agencies to be granted the stamp for full implementation of all the requirements of the Dubai Paperless Strategy.

The Centre achieved the goal in a record time of just nine months.

"We were able to convert the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic into an opportunity to strengthen our procedures for paperless transformation and accelerate our implementation plan," said Tariq Al Janahi, Deputy Executive Director and Chief Happiness & Wellbeing Officer of Dubai Statistics Centre.

"Our team re-engineered procedures, processes and services to keep pace with the demands of the changed environment and significantly raised our efficiency in implementing paperless transformation standards," he added.

By activating the electronic signatures of all its employees and removing 90 per cent of printers, the Centre reduced the number of printed papers to 189 by the end of September 2020. It printed its last paper on 20 October 2020.
