KUWAIT CITY, Dec 1: As of yesterday, 14,500 employees out of about 27,000 employees in the Ministry of Electricity and Water responded to the calls of the planning, follow-up and administrative affairs sectors to update their data according to the new fingerprint system implemented by the ministry, reports Al-Anba daily.
Informed sources in the ministry told the daily that the remaining number should go as quickly as possible to the approved offices in the ministry for the fingerprint team to renew their data so that the team can activate the entire system before next February, according to the terms of the contract with the executing company. The sources explained the Administrative Affairs Sector had previously issued circulars obligating employees to update their data to avoid legal accountability, in order to ensure the completion of the project on time.
In the same context, the sources announced that one of the sites at the entrance of the ministry was equipped yesterday with the necessary devices to activate the new fingerprint system within 170 sites that were identified in order to ensure the distribution of employees and not to be crowded in one place.
The sources pointed out that the second specified sites were completed, where the devices were installed and tested in preparation for their introduction into the system. The sources stated that these devices are prepared to receive the face, fingerprint and smart fingerprint, that is, the phone’s fingerprint, through which the attendance of the employees can be monitored through special applications on their phones, which are scheduled to start working after the system is fully activated.
