‘Paperless government’ on the way to the Knesset

The day on which the start-up nation’s government stops using snail mail is nearer than ever, with the Ministerial Committee for Legislation approving a “paperless government” proposal from the opposition Sunday.

The initiative from MK Mickey Levy (Yesh Atid) would forbid the government from sending or accepting documents via the mail to or from suppliers in Israel in relation to selling property or providing services. Rather, they must send a computer document.

Levy said that, while serving as deputy finance minister in the last government, he saw massive piles of papers and file folders on desks in Tax Authority offices throughout the country, and the ministry invested NIS 40 million in computerizing the tax authority in order to move towards a paperless system.
