News Details

The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) last Thursday hosted several government entities at a virtual event to introduce the Microsoft Government Framework Agreement 2020-202 signed between the Government of the State of Qatar represented by MOTC and Microsoft represented by its two local agents; Malomatia and Ebla, who formed the first consortium of its kind in the history of the agreement since 2003.

The agreement provides for technical support for all Microsoft licenses and software used in government entities, including for computer and user licenses (Office 365), server licenses such as Windows Servers, database server licenses such as SQL Server, and other licenses already deployed at government entities, in addition to cloud computing services through Microsoft Azure.

Addressing the event, which was attended by over 100 personnel from multiple government entities, Acting Assistant Undersecretary of Government Information Technology, MOTC, Ms. Mashael Ali Al-Hammadi, said: "Now more than a decade into the approach of framework agreements we can confirm that the return for Qatar government’s investment in purchasing global companies’ software through such agreements is in the good interest of the government with what we have gained – a high quality yield that pays off significantly well in terms of efficiency and customer satisfaction, something which contributes to achieving QNV2030 and e-Government Strategy".
