The three cooperation protocols stipulated that their scope of work will extend to joint tasks, including

targeted systems, making all system services provided by the ministries and entities available to the citizen
electronically through Digital Egypt Platform, as well as linking and integrating with other digital
transformation systems and participatory applications. The three cooperation protocols provided for linking
the applications to the State's joint applications system, with interconnection with the info- structures
system, as well as the full separation between applications and data and adherence to insurance standards,
in addition to working to displace data from the current systems in the ministries and entities subject to
each cooperation protocol to each target system after being purified and reviewed.
With regard to the obligations of the signatory parties as set in the three protocols, MCIT will provide the
necessary funding to implement the scope of work of each protocol. It will also undertake all contractual
procedures related to managing and executing the required works; this includes preparing tender
documents, requesting proposals, and awarding the tender. It also includes procuring a consultant who
would (i) re-engineer procedures and work cycles; (ii) develop systems in cooperation with the rest of the parties; (iii) provide such testing and development environment that is necessary for the development of
each targeted system; (iv) give training; and (v) set performance standards as well as mechanisms and
indicators to ensure a high level of services being provided.
On the other hand, the rest of the signatory parties will undertake their relevant scope of work as
governmental service providers within the three systems: companies and establishments; social protection;
and real estate wealth. This scope of work includes (i) assigning an official and a specialized work team;
(ii) selecting the human resources that need training in order to run the systems smoothly and ensure
sustainability and stability of services; (iii) assisting in developing such organizational structures and work
cycles that would shorten service time and improve service quality while being rendered electronically; and
(iv) assisting the other parties and companies involved in the execution phase so as to overcome any
obstacles and achieve the desired goals.
Moreover, the protocols provide that each signatory party will commit its affiliates to the protocols. On the
one hand, MoJ will, via the real estate wealth platform, give access to the real estate registration data and
related data available at the Real Estate Registration and Notarization Department (RESN). It will also

Company for Water and Waste Water (HCWW), whereas MLD will supervise the governorates'
performance of their assignments under each protocol.
Furthermore, the three cooperation protocols stipulate that for each protocol a supreme committee would
be formed. Each committee will be chaired by MCIT Minister and will have as members the ministers and
the heads of the agencies party to the protocols. The committees' objective is to formulate the strategy for
the performance of each protocol. An executive committee will also be formed comprising MCIT deputy
