At the presentation of results on e-services evaluation, it was emphasized that as of 2013, the State Agency conducts annual assessment of electronic services in order to determine and improve the quality of electronic services provided by the state entities. Within the evaluation, eligibility will be determined for the provision of electronic services and proposals will be made to address the shortcomings.
By involving all stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem of the country - the “InnoLand” project will encourage innovative activities and creation of successful startups as well as production of internationally competitive products and services.

One of the new projects is the "Mobile Gov" application. The mobile application has been developed in accordance with the task of establishing “Mobile Government in e-Gov 2.0 version”, defined in the Strategic Road Map for the development of telecommunications and information technologies in the country.
The application will allow users to benefit from public services using smartphones through the integration of information systems of various government agencies.

Through these terminals designed to minimize contact between public officials and citizens, the latter will be able to benefit from various services without losing time and going anywhere. By selecting a service that they want to access, citizens enter biometric photos and other data into the system, fill out the electronic application form and apply for the service.
