The project aims to automate the work system in documentation offices and Illicit Gains Authority through the use of ICTs. It was launched in 2002 in line with a cooperation protocol signed between the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and the Ministry of Justice to create a pilot project in four offices: Azbakeya, Ismailia, Qasr el Nile and Zaytoun.
In 2009, the project was launched in 50 documentation offices across the country and the main information center for the notary public was established. Fifty more offices were planned for the second phase. In 2014, 50 documentation offices were automated including the personal status registration office.
Scheduled for automation in the third phase were fifty new offices (all documentation offices in Cairo and Giza), office for foreigners’ ownership and Illicit Gains Authority. To date, there are a total of 100 automated documentation offices nationwide.
The project was launched to upgrade services; secure documents; and improve management, training and exchange of expertise. Additionally, the project solves may problems among which are speeding up time of transactions, using automated transactions instead of hand written ones. The project has been connected with the Banned from Acting Network to review names on the list and act accordingly.
