Fingers crossed for portal testing

The State Services Commission's e-government unit has implemented what it sees as appropriate fixes for the bugs slowing down the e-government portal, says portal specialist Andrea Gray.

The State Services Commission’s e-government unit has implemented what it sees as appropriate fixes for the bugs slowing down the e-government portal, says portal specialist Andrea Gray.

But the fixes had yet to be tested when Computerworld spoke to her last week. Results of the tests were due late last week or early this week.

The portal will be citizens’ main entry point for finding government services online. The problems relate purely to an unsatisfactory response time, unit head Brendan Boyle told Computerworld last month. The search engine finds the things it should find.

However, at the time he said a fix should emerge within “a few days”.

Release of the portal was scheduled for July 18, but was been postponed until after the election because of the problems and ministers’ electoral commitments.
