Inventorying procedures are still ongoing at the Health Ministry, which owns a broad range of assets in its directorates general, hospitals, polyclinics, health centres and their affiliate establishments.

The Ministry of Finance also resumed second phase preliminary procedures of asset inventorying at the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology, Dhofar Municipality and the Environment Authority. The project will later cover other government entities.

The next phase of inventorying will also cover the assets of the Sultanate of Oman’s investments, locally and abroad, the assets Oman Investment Authority and the Central Bank of Oman.

The Finance Ministry will simultaneously set hands on developing the electronic system for the National Register of Government Assets.
