Angola : Cplp Prize for the Modernization of Parliamentary Services.

The Portuguese-language parliaments jointly analyze the best practices for the modernization of their services, which inevitably passes through the process of parliamentary dematerialization.

Gathered in Luanda, CPLP's Information Technology staff reflect on procedures aimed at reducing bureaucracy, transparency and efficiency in the administration of parliamentary activity. On the first day of work, the Director of the Information Center of the National Assembly, Jos Eduardo Menezes, addressed the Dematerialisation of Processes in the Angolan Parliament.

Jos Eduardo Menezes made it known that since 2012 the National Assembly has been implementing the dematerialization of its services, with this initiative Parliament has significantly reduced the use of paper.

The modernization of the Data Center , as well as the placement of new computing devices gave faster access and availability of documents.

Jos Eduardo Menezes said that in order to ensure the normal functioning of the institution with the implementation of new technologies, parliamentarians and parliamentary staff were subjected to a process of preparation and adaptation to use the new tools placed at their disposal.

With the dematerialisation, the Angolan Parliament modernized and optimized the administrative processes and, on the other hand, reduced some financial costs, due to the excessive use of the paper.

Currently, dossier management, attendance management, fault justification form, task management, as well as assiduity of deputies are carried out via an intranet portal.

Alongside Angola, Cape Verde has also made considerable strides in terms of information and communication technologies (ICTs).

CAPE VERDE CASE

The SILP, Legislative and Parliamentary Information System aims to improve legislative production, improve internal and external communication, as well as improve transparency and openness to society.

Cape Verde also has an intranet system where the agenda of the plenary and the president is placed and a legislative database, which citizens can consult and have access to the laws. The country lives in the dilemma of the CPLP parliaments, the acquisition of software still falls short of the desired, and the suppliers register a lot of slowness at the time of its maintenance.
