eParticipation Policy
 
Vision
 
The Official eGovernment Services Portal of the Sultanate of Oman gives the opportunity to all segments of society to involve themselves in the dialogue and interaction on all aspects related to the Oman Digital Society. This will enable members of the community to electronically contact us, offer their feedback, or make comments or suggestions.
 
Objective
 
Our main objective is to establish a process for listening and talking to users and to respond to their feedback, complaints and suggestions.
 
Pledge
 
Our pledge to users is that we will listen and respond to your comments or suggestions, but only when those comments are directed at specific services, facilities or policies related to the Portal. Furthermore, we will acknowledge your input and reply to you with a carefully considered answer. From you, it is expected that you shall behave responsibly and not make comments which are irrelevant to the context of the Portal or are inappropriate according to Oman's culture, as these will be removed immediately from view and excluded from consideration. For any queries unrelated to the Portal context, we will direct you to the appropriate authority who can best answer your question.
