DHA launches paperless electronic financial system

DUBAI, October 4, 2017

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has launched the first integrated electronic financial system, which covers all external and internal financial transactions involving all suppliers dealing with DHA departments and sectors.

The DHA has started automating its systems and services to dispose of paper transactions, following the announcement of Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, who stated that the emirate of Dubai will celebrate the end of the governmental paper-transaction era by issuing last printed government document in 2021.

DHA announced the launch of the new paperless financial system during a meeting attended by Humaid Al Qutami, chairman of the Board and director general of the DHA and Eid El Sabbagh, manager of Financial Applications at Dubai Smart Government.

Through the adoption of the "Smart Resource Management System” and “Smart Expense System", the DHA finally eliminated all paper financial transactions of suppliers, as well as internal transactions of DHA sectors and departments as it has successfully completed 11,651 transactions electronically from November 2016 until yesterday (October 3), as an experimental phase before the operational launch of the system.

Al Qutami highlighted that this system will help bring about qualitative transformation and optimal investment in the financial resources and will increase efficiency and increase compatibility between the Department of Finance and the Financial Audit Department at DHA.

Al Sabbagh said the authority is the first Dubai government entity to fully integrate the financial smart system explaining that suppliers no longer have to come to the authority in person to complete their transaction, as it has become completely electronic and paperless.

Ahmad Al Nuami, director of Financial Affairs at the DHA shared in the meeting the steps that were taken to dispose of paper transactions before implementing the new system and after and how this new system provides a more efficient and accurate solution.

He said during the experimental phase a number of workshops have been implemented to familiarize the suppliers with the new system as well as officials from the authority’s different departments and sectors. – TradeArabia News Service
