In an exclusive ceremony at the Arfa Software Technology Park, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) and South Punjab Secretariat to implement the e-Filing and Office Automation System (e-FOAS) and Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) at the South Punjab Secretariat.
The MoU was signed by Additional Chief Secretary South Punjab Zahid Akhtar Zaman and Chairman PITB Azfar Manzoor.
PITB DG IT-Operation Faisal Yousaf and PITB DG e-Governance Sajid Latif were also present during the ceremony along with other senior officials. According to the MoU, office automation through e-FOAS would transform the work climate and workflow of all the government departments under the South Punjab Secretariat.
Additionally, implementation of HRMIS would help in digitalising human resource operations including updated employee records and attendance, transfers and postings, promotions, and retirement while ensuring efficiency and transparency. Additional Chief Secretary Zahid Akhtar Zaman said that these tech-driven initiatives will also minimize the unnecessary expenditure.
PITB Chairman Azfar Manzoor stated that e-FOAS and HRMIS will help in saving time while enhancing public service delivery. HRMIS is an ICT based solution for record keeping, timely data analysis, and automatic alert generation.
