He was addressing delegates at the Government Technology Conference (GovTech) earlier this week.

“Technology has been a major driver of change and disruption, which has been unparalleled in our experience, but this has also meant that we have had to find better ways of regulating competition,” Dr Mncube said.

GovTech also highlighted the extent of the State’s “e-government” strategy, with significant projects already underway or in the advanced conceptualisation phases.

The Integrated Justice System (IJS) is the largest digital project underway in the country and it involves the integration of the entire justice supply chain.

“There are already 112 400 people registered in the IJS cluster, while 153 South African Police Service [offices] and 509 courts are now connected to the system,” Department of Justice and Constitutional Development IJS Board chairperson, Godfrey Leseba, said.

He said this is in line with the goals in the National Development Plan (NDP), which is geared at creating a safer South Africa for all citizens.

Among other milestones achieved to date is an Integrated Inmate Management System, which includes a fingerprint documentation system for all South African citizens. Once this has been completed, it will be expanded to include asylum seekers.
