24 – The Award of Dubai Government Excellence Programme – Excellent Administrative Experience Category – 2000

The Food Control Section of the Municipality won this award. The award winning experience is the inspection process on food establishments using portable computers whereby the municipality linked all activities of the Food Control Section using computers in harmony with the municipality’s drive to make use of the latest technology for the benefit of the society. This experience helped increase the standard of public health in various food premises and reduce the number of food inspectors required for the large number of food establishments in the emirate. This enabled the inspectors to reduce mistakes in preparing the reports, prepare electronic reports and connect the work of all units in a faster and more efficient way.
