The Public Works Authority 'Ashghal', represented by the Information Systems Department and the Engineering Services Department, won the GIS Excellence Award for the use of GIS technology in Moazanah Program on the sidelines of the Esri Global User Conference 2019 held in San Diego.

Moazanah Program has been implemented to enable governmental entities, including Ashghal departments, in applying for projects that they wish to implement through Ashghal such as schools, hospitals, health centers, service buildings, infrastructure projects and others.

Moazanah Program includes new additions and features that enable users to request projects, take approvals and follow up their implementation. They can also get integrated reports on projects in record time and much easier way, in addition to the program being integrated with Oracle Primavera (P6), GIS is used in an integrated manner, and integrates with CDMS and ERP.

Through the program, 522 projects have been requested to budget the first edition of next year 2020 projects and 70% less than in previous years. This was done within three weeks and during the official working hours only compared to nearly three months in the past.

The authority has re-developed Moazanah system to facilitate the process of submitting budget project requests, then reviewed, adopted in record time, in addition to the follow- up of financing projects transparently to all ministries and government agencies, and enable them to follow through this system.

The Esri International Conference brings together thousands of GIS participants and specialists from 130 countries and provides an ideal opportunity to share experiences, showcase different achievements and strategies in the fields of GIS, and an important global event in this field.
