The Ministry of Interior (MoI) has launched 'Sooum' app for auctions organised by the ministry's departments as well as for goods offered by it.
During a press conference held on Monday, MoI's officials explained that the application is a new step in facilitating the procedures for purchasing goods offered by the MoI such as distinctive number plates, vehicles, boats, equipment, electronic devices, and other goods, noting that its first phase will be limited to distinctive traffic plate numbers.
Acting Director General of Traffic Brigadier Abdulaziz bin Jassim Al Thani said that the application offers two services in the first stage. The first is a bidding service for the sale of distinctive number plates using the mechanism previously used in distinctive number auctions in the Metrash2 application, while the second is the expression of interest service, a new way to purchase distinctive numbers.
For his part, Director General of Communications and Information Systems at the MoI Colonel Jassim Abdul Rahim Al Sayed stated that the MoI is making every effort to develop its technological services using the best technical means and innovate smart solutions.
He added that the General Directorate of Communications and Information Systems was keen on continuous communication with the MoI's various departments as it has the technical expertise, with the aim of improving the quality level of electronic services provided.
