PUTRAJAYA: Malaysians aged 18 and above will be assigned an e-mail account each to receive statements, bills and notices from the Government.
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who announced this yesterday, said the 1MY E-mail initiative would allow “direct and secure” communication between citizens and the Government while enhancing the delivery of government services to consumers and businesses alike.
Tricubes Bhd is collaborating with Microsoft to develop the 1Malaysia E-mail project.
The company will spearhead the private RM50mil investment that also includes the development of a web portal as a one-stop centre for government services providing value-added services such as social networking, checking of bills online and payments.
Tricubes chief executive officer Khairun Zainal Mokhtar said the company was still conducting stress tests for the website.
“Hopefully, we can get it ready by July,” he told a press conference at the fifth progress update of the Economic Transformation Programme here yesterday.
Khairun said the portal was different from the MyEG website, which focused on the payment of bills and summonses, as it would allow interaction between people and the Government.
The Performance Management and Delivery Unit, responding to queries said the 1Malaysia E-mail would not be made compulsory.
