Innovative Solutions for the Public Sector Uncovered by Ho Chi Minh City

Revolutionizing Public Sector Management through Innovative Solutions: The Gov.Star Program

Ho Chi Minh City recently announced a program to find and develop innovative solutions aimed at improving management capacity in the public sector. The program, called Gov.Star, was launched by the Department of Science and Technology of Ho Chi Minh City on April 3.

The objective of Gov.Star is to identify new models and technologies that can be used to address issues related to public affairs activities within departments, People’s Committees, and other entities in the city. Individuals, project groups, and businesses with innovative solutions applicable to managing public affairs activities at state management agencies, schools, hospitals, and more are encouraged to participate in the program.

Selected projects will receive financial support and incubation to further develop and introduce them to departments and localities for practical pilot implementation. Through this program, the District 1 People’s Committee has already piloted the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) for tasks such as granting business licenses and regulating temporary sidewalk use.

The selection process for Gov.Star involves four phases where project teams are evaluated based on criteria like applicability, capacity for practical implementation, technology application, creativity, economic efficiency, and social impact. Participants will have access to training, advice, and support from state management agencies to better understand their needs and refine their technology solutions and business models.

Director of the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City emphasized the importance of using technology to solve specific problems faced by departments and localities. This provides businesses with an opportunity to tailor technology solutions specifically designed for public sector needs. The ultimate goal of Gov.Star is to foster innovation
