Malaysia to shut down 750 public sector websites

KUALA LUMPUR – At least half of the public sector’s 1,500 websites will be shut down by the end of the year. Websites that had not been maintained for more than six months must be shut down.

A government official said apart from optimising government resources, the move was also being carried out because there was a sizeable number of government websites which had not been properly maintained.

He added that the Malaysian Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu) conducted studies on the level of services provided by the government departments and agencies through their websites. It showed that there was still plenty of room for improvement.

“On average, one in three websites assessed last year received a rating of three stars and below. It was almost the same story in 2013,” he said.

750 public sector websites to be shut down

KUALA LUMPUR: At least half of the public sector’s 1,500 websites will be shut down by the end of the year. Websites that had not been maintained for more than six months must be shut down.

A government official said apart from optimising government resources, the move was also being carried out because there was a sizeable number of government websites which had not been properly maintained.

Besides cutting operating and maintenance costs, the move was also to ensure the public received the latest information on government services quickly.

It was understood that an order was sent out to all ministries, state governments, statutory bodies and local councils in June on how the rationalisation exercise should be carried out.
