Easy Access To Contact Information Of Public Officers While On-The-Go New Mobile Service Launched For Singapore Government Directory Interactive

 
The Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA) has teamed up with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to launch a new mobile service in connection with the Singapore Government Directory Interactive (SGDI) (accessible at www.sgdi.gov.sg), where users can obtain vital information on the SGDI through SMS.
This new SGDI mobile service serves to meet the needs of people who are always on the move and need information quickly. With its launch, anybody with a mobile phone can conveniently obtain contact information of government agencies. This initiative is part of the iGov2010 masterplan to increase the reach and richness of government e-services, where citizens and business users are provided with an alternative mode of access to government services and information.
All that is required of the user is to remember the 5-digit short code 74688 (or SGOVT) and to follow the steps below to obtain information such as a public officer’s organisation, department, designation, and telephone number as listed on SGDI.
  • Key <SGDI>space<Officer’s name>
  • Send to 74688
  • In response, SMS messages list all the persons of that name along with their organisations, departments, designations and telephone numbers.

For more details, please visit http://www.sgdi.gov.sg/ and click on SMS Help.
Introduced since July 2006 by the Ministry of Finance and IDA, the 5-digit short code 74688 (or SGOVT) is a common number created for government mobile services. This number has been used for alerts and notifications such as SMS push notifications for renewals of passport, road tax and URA season parking.
