The Resolution also seeks to ensure the optimal use of existing infrastructure, data and services. It also aims to develop procedures that will ensure ICT compatibility and integration at the government level.
According to the Resolution, Digital Dubai Authority in collaboration with relevant government entities, will develop policies across all areas concerned with achieving the government’s plans for digital transformation, including: the ICT annual budget of government entities; shared digital services of government entities; data centres and the Government of Dubai’s cloud services, among other areas.
The Director General of Digital Dubai Authority is authorised to approve the policies introduced pursuant to the Resolution and their amendments. Policies that have been approved must be published on the Authority’s website.
According to the Resolution, Digital Dubai Authority is tasked with overseeing the implementation of the policies across various stages, notifying government entities about the approved policies, and providing government entities with technical assistance to implement the policies. The Authority is also tasked with preparing regular reports to be shared with The Executive Council on the adherence of government entities to these policies.
The Director General of Digital Dubai Authority will issue a decision specifying the timeframe for implementing the policies for government entities. The decision will also determine the start date for each phase, the government entities that must implement each policy, as well as the implementation procedures for each phase.
According to the Resolution, government entities are required to implement the policies as per the timeline set by the Director General of Digital Dubai Authority and fully adhere to them. They must also provide the Authority with specific data and reports on a regular basis, among other requirements.
The Resolution annuls any other legislation that may contradict with it. The Resolution is effective from its date of issuance and will be published in the Official Gazette.
