The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) is planning to launch a project which will integrate all of its existing information technology (IT) services and increase its interaction with the citizens of the Capital city.

The project - Integrated Project Management Unit (I-PMU) - will enable BMC to have a more transparent and accountable e-governance for the City.

I-PMU will be responsible for monitoring and coordinating timely implementation of various projects undertaken by the corporation.

 A single window clearance system for BMC’s services, simplification of procedures and streamlining of the approval process for different schemes would be some of the benefits of the project.

The pre-bid meeting for I-PMU was held on Saturday where the bidders discussed the project.

As per estimates the project will cost BMC about ` 3.5 lakh per month including infrastructure and manpower. However, the actual cost will be determined after finalisation of the agreement.

The project is expected to abide by the essence of the Public Services Delivery Act, under which it has to deliver basic services in a time bound manner.

BMC commissioner Sanjib Mishra said I-PMU will be a convergent platform for all IT projects undertaken by the corporation. It will be implemented on a larger scale than the existing online facilities.

It will also act as a two way platform and allow the citizens to keep a tab on BMC’s performance.

Uploading of a quarterly financial review of the corporation for public viewing may also be started.
