Project Title i-PWD (Integrated Public Work Department)
Project Category Innovation
Abstract In this rapid electronic technology development, the information had received a great impact on how it transfers and transform. Since then, mobile information has received a lot of attention in recent years as a growing segment of the educational and industrial technology field. Mobile information, e- information (e-electronics) or i-information (i- integrated), can be defined as any information interaction delivered through mobile technology and accessed at a public's convenience from any location. Nevertheless, the construction industry is always related to information interaction. It involves all different parties from client, consultants, contractors, and they must synchronise with machines-materials and progress on site. Without adequate and proper channeling, the information among man and tools, it will create loses to the client and delay on progress. One of the important construction information is Public Work Department (PWD) Standard Form of Contract. It is a printed form pre-prepared contract which legally binding between two parties, the Employer and the Contractor. It provides a detail legal framework identifying the rights, obligations and duties of the parties; establish the ambit of the powers and duties of the contract administrative procedures. This Standard Form of Contract also being taught in the University and learned by the students, especially in Quantity Surveying field, to administer the construction contract. Currently, the PWD contract only in printed documents which consist of 54 pages and it’s a necessary document that needs to be read and understand by construction parties and building-construction related academician and students. Unlike electronic information, printed papers must be searched manually, takes up space, prone to damage, editing problems, higher supply cost and poor environmental credentials. Through i-PWD innovation it will integrate interaction on PWD issues, instant access via online and offline, direct search on desire clauses, interactive features such as easy understand-interesting graphics, examples on each contract matters, increased security and reduced cost. These applications have also been developed to work with other, existing authority technologies such as Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) information management system and CIDB all by way of i-PWD technology.
