SHAH ALAM – Smart Selangor Delivery Unit (SSDU) is inviting local and foreign technology suppliers to participate in the development of Smart Selangor initiatives.
Its managing director, Dr Fahmi Ngah, said collaboration with the private sector, academics and creators is important to ensure that the Smart Selangor agenda is developed as well as to meet the needs of the people at an appropriate cost.
“Starting today, the SSDU announced an Expression of Interest (EoI) process for this party to propose their proposals based on some of Selangor’s Smart Priorities this year.”
“This year is the third year of the Selangor Smart development implemented by SSDU, we are grateful and appreciative to all the support shown by the Selangor Menteri Besar, Amirudin Shari and the state government at various levels,” he said at a press conference at Annex Building, here.
Dr Fahmi said documents relating to the EoI process could be purchased from the SSDU Office on the 15th floor, Plaza Perangsang, Shah Alam from 26 March to 5 April at 9.30am to 5pm.
“The proposal should be returned to the SSDU office before 12 noon on April 12,” he said.
Meanwhile, Amirudin welcomes outsiders to help realize the agenda.
“It is another example of the policy and business-friendly exposure by the state government which is the core of this administration.”
“I hope the Smart Selangor agenda will be successfully implemented through the involvement of more private companies in Malaysia,” said Amirudin.
SSDU is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the state government mandated to spearhead the development of the Smart Selangor programme at once, making Selangor the ‘The Premier Regional Smart State’ in the ASEAN region by 2015.
Selangor Smart Programme aims to make Selangor a more productive and livable regional state as well as to ensure sustainability and conservation of the environment in line with the achievement of development.
A total of 60 initiatives were developed under 12 domains namely ‘Smart Governance, Smart Waste Management, Smart Traffic and Mobility, Smart Digital Infrastructure and Smart Healthcare’.
In addition, there are also ‘Smart Education, Smart Disaster Management, Smart Food and Agriculture, Smart Building and Energy, Smart Water Management, Smart Safety and Security and Smart Social Support’.
