KUCHING: The Ministry of Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development will develop a digital application to improve its delivery system.
Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah stated that the application would be known as ‘i-KWKPK’ — the initials stands for Kementerian Kebajikan, Kesejahteraan Komuniti, Wanita, Keluarga dan Pembangunan Kanak-Kanak (the ministry).
“In this one system, it (i-KWKPK) will house the services offered under the ministry such as Endowment Fund Sarawak (EFS), Annual Special Grant (GTK), Post Natal Care, e-preneurs, Kenyalang Gold Card and other government services.
“The ministry will propose this digital application to the State Cabinet once its development has reach completion by 2020,” she told a press conference at her office at Baitulmakmur building here, yesterday.
The i-KWKPK will be developed by Social Community Technology (Socoe) Sdn Bhd.
Fatimah added that the digitalisation was important in order to improve the ministry’s delivery of services to the community in terms of speed, precision and security.
She also mentioned that although the application had yet to be established, the services offered under her ministry would still continue to be done manually.
Also present were Women, Family and Childhood Development Assistant Minister Rosey Yunus and Socoe Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Sam Wong.
