The implementation of the largest e-government project in Bulgaria will enable electronic data exchange between over 30 public registers, according to Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski.

Bulgaria's Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications signed Wednesday contracts with three contractors on the e-government project.

Moskovski vowed that work on the project would start on Thursday.

The total value of the project is BGN 18 M and the first results are expected in Sofia-based units.

The e-government project is financed under the Administrative Capacity Operational Program and is to be wrapped up in 2013.

In his Wednesday statement, Moskovski noted that Information Services AD, a public limited company majority owned by Bulgaria's Finance Ministry, would become a leading unit in the implementation of the e-government scheme.

He added that Deputy Minister Valeri Borisov, who holds the Information Technology portfolio, would be included in the company's managing body.
