LDP’s Administrative Reform Promotion Task Force calls for centralization of government IT procurement

(May 23, 2109, Nikkei Online) LDP’s Administrative Reform Promotion Task Force submitted their proposals to increase the efficiency of central government bureaucracy. In order to increase the productivity and introduce the latest IT technologies, the HQ proposes the establishment of Digital Government Agency, which would centrally administer government procurement. The chairman of the Task Force said a press conference that “He wants to increase the transparency of system procurement and promote further digitalization”

 At present, the IT department at the Cabinet Secretary’s Office is managing the system procurement of the ministries. The Task Force believes that advanced  systems are not actively introduced at present and that authority needs to be strengthened in order to make system procurement more efficient.
