COMPUTER SYSTEMS IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION IN KUWAIT

Auther : By: Dr. Eng. Ali Yehia Mostafa

Computer systems in public administration in Kuwait have two main characteristics:

  1. Unified or “Common” computer systems are applied to government ministries and departments, especially for payroll, budgeting, stock control, personnel information and management information.
  2. Centralized design, development and running of these systems by the Government Computer Center (GCC) at the Ministry of Planning. The ministries and government department are then the users of these systems that receive technical support from the GCC.

This paper aims at presenting an investigation of the most important computer systems applied in public administration in Kuwait and proposing an approach to the development of these systems within the frame of an integrated management information system on the national level and on the ministry or government department level to overcome the problems caused by the complete separation of the present systems and their failure to meet the needs of the management.

The investigated systems are mainly: the Payroll System, the Budgeting System, the Stock Control System, the Personnel Information System (PIS), the Billing System, the Management Information System (MIS), and some other specialized systems. The Investigation emphasizes mainly on the points of strength and weakness of each system as regards objectives, type (batch, on-line,…) output, input, data-base, and abilities and effectiveness.

An outline is proposed for the development and completion of computer systems in public administration in Kuwait to form an integrated information system that helps in attaining the objectives of the state as well as the objectives of the organization, ministry or government department. The proposed system allows for the analysis of data and information on both national and organization level to help to rationalize the decisions on these levels. The proposed sub-systems are also analyzed, these are mainly: Payroll, Budgeting and Financial Accounting, Costing, Materials and Inventory Control, Production and Job-order, Resources and Revenues (Billing), Project Planning and Control, and Management Information.

The ability of execution of the proposed development of the present systems and the implementation of the proposed information system is also discussed.
