This is part of the Jordanian e-Government project to build a complete operations center containing applications and a database to be used by different governmental entities across the country. The project contains a secured government network, email, and portal web environment. Phase I involved a pilot project to build the Operation Data Center and connect six ministries to the Secure Government Network; each gaining Internet access and email service. The data center was designed to handle the future expansions of up to 120 ministries and government organizations. As a result of the success of Phase I, STS made possible for 12 ministries to take full advantage of the Secured Governmental Network in Phase II in addition to 30 entities in Phase III.
