SOA-QPS4 business review: C&T Solutions participates in wide range of e-govt service improvement projects

Hong Kong, August 3, 2018 - Through the Standing Offer Agreement for Quality Professional Services 4 (SOA-QPS4) commenced on July 31, 2017, the HKSAR Government has encouraged more IT solution projects to accelerate provision of quality public services. Over the first year of SOA-QPS4, C&T Solutions has been engaged in a wide range of projects hosted by various Government organizations, ranking one of the top IT solution service providers under the scheme.

Under SOA-QPS4, projects in Category 4 (information security and independent testing services) accounted for 75% of C&T Solutions’ various engagements in the first year.  C&T’s security team provided security risk assessment (SRA), audit and a number of customized security testing services for over 20 Government bureaus and departments with greater concern over system security in light of the rapidly increasing public demand for e-government services in recent years. A major project of C&T Solutions under this category is the independent testing for the Companies Registry to ensure the public’s uninterrupted access to its Cyber Search Centre, Company Search Mobile Service and e-Registry through common browsers. The Immigration Department also entrusted the C&T’s security team for SRA and auditing for its Next Generation Electronic Passport System, which is designed for the department’s self-service kiosks to provide secure and smooth passport e-application services at various immigration offices.

In a large project under Category 1 (pre-implementation & independent program/ project management services), the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department entrusted C&T Solutions to formulate a five-year Departmental Information Technology Plan, through which the team will recommend the appropriate initiatives of applying mobile devices, data encryption solutions and other information and communications technologies (ICT) in delivering more secure, effective and reliable public services for 2018 to 2023.

Under Category 3 Major Group (implementation & combined system development services), the experienced technical teams at C&T Solutions have been working on three large-scale projects, including development of the Personnel Information Management System for Education Bureau, Ships and Seafarers Registration System for the Marine Department, and 2019/20 Household Expenditure Survey System for the Census and Statistics Department.

With a proven track record since the first SOA-QPS scheme in 2002, C&T Solutions’ experienced technical teams are committed to delivering reliable IT services through the three categories to support the Government’s wide spectrum of initiatives to provide continuously better public services in the remaining three years of the SOA-QPS4 scheme.
