MOSCOW, August 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will hold a session of the government commission on the use of information technologies to discuss ways to streamline the procedure for the issue of domestic passports and those for travel abroad, and other matters.
The government press service reported that, apart from optimization of services to design general civil documents and international passports, participants in the session would also raise matters concerning the services of the Pension Fund and the development of State information systems. "The agenda also includes items about the development of a single network for the transmission of data for Federal government bodies in the 2015-2017 period," a press service official pointed out.
The Commission's session will be held at the Moscow-based Traffic Management Center, in view of which a report is to be made by Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin (about the development of the "City Information Environment" system). A number of Cabinet members will also participate in the session.
