The notebook, connected to a wireless network, opens the access to the system practically in any spot of the globe” – Rail Sarbaev mentioned.
The introduction of e-government demands serious investments to the infrastructure of the electronic communications – the Republic possesses the modern network of fiber-optic communication lines with the total length 16 thousand kilometers, which covers all 4500 settlements in the Republic. On the base of this network the network of data transference of the state and municipal bodies RB is already working. Further development of the system is planned in 2010 – the municipal institutions will join it. In parallel the system will closely interact with the regional portal of public services. Besides, the system of the interdepartmental electronic circulation of documents represents the base for rendering of public services in the e-form. 88 administrative regulations for public services are approved for today and the list of 25 top priority public services, subject to be rendered in the e-form, is already formed. In a whole the General List of the public e-services includes 286 services and functions, rendered by the Republican authority.
