– Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) improved its rating in ‘The Provider Based Evaluation (ProBE) 2014' formerly known as Malaysia Government Portals and Websites Assessment (MGPWA).
The assessment was one of the government’s efforts in ensuring that government ministries and agencies improve their online system effectively.
Based on the results published by MGPWA Facebook account, UMS website achieved a five star rating based on assessment conducted by the Multimedia Development Corporation (MdeC) on 1 July 2014.
Meanwhile, the Department of Information and Communication Technology (JTMK) in a statement disclosed that the highest record for UMS in the MGPWA score was a five star status awarded in 2012.
However, the rating fell in 2013 due to a change in the scoring format which was not notified in advance.
Based on these results, the Management and Technical Website Committee consisting of JTMK, Corporate Communications Division and the Media and Citra Division was established to plan and coordinate the university’s website.
The statement also noted that the UMS Management and Technical Website Committee this year planned to upload a new design that was more user-friendly, consistent with the requirements of MGPWA.
Out of 1,086 government agencies’ website evaluated, 293 were accredited with a five star status. – ZMD (fl)
