Secretary of state for digitalisation Marc Hansen (DP) presented new digital features for the citizens’ platform, Myguichet.lu, during a Monday press conference.
Among the new features available through the enhanced platform include Gouvcheck, an app which allows users to check the authenticity of an official document--a residency certificate, electoral list registration, eventually even a fishing licence--by scanning a QR code. Users of the enhanced platform will further be able to choose Digicash as a mode of payment as well as use an e-tracking feature to track progress on a previously filed request. Finally, appointments can also now be made online.
While Hansen assured attendees that digitalisation was underway, he did admit there had been “some hiccups” along the way adding: “We are not starting from scratch, but there are many things to work on.”
Hansen has further asked for a consultation debate on digitalisation to take place in the chamber of deputies in early July. The ministry will also charge itself with the creation of a high committee of digital transformation, which will bring together a number of key players from various ministries and civil society to develop action items to meet strategic targets outlined in the 2018-2023 government plan.
