ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for IT Anusha Rahman has said that the e-office suite will be a phenomenal achievement of the IT Ministry and the present government, as it will ensure efficiency, accuracy, effectiveness and good governance.

The e-office suite is the automation of core businesses of the government to bring transparency and accountability in decision making, and to provide an efficient and cost effective public service. Creating a paperless environment, the concept of digital governance will be promoted. The e-office suite consists of 6 modules.

Subsequently it will be implemented in all other Federal/Divisions in a phase manner and is expected to be complete by end of year 2014.
