The Purpose: 
The need for central network of national information.  
The process of connecting and integrating the data of the governmental bodies in the field of Information Technology & System has become an imperious necessity as one of the most important pillars for completing and developing national database. Especially, State of Kuwait has exerted outstanding efforts for benefiting from the use of information technology and its special bases. Furthermore, Kuwait has presented operational scenarios to shorten the time and effort of citizens and agencies too. Information network and databases have widely spread inside the public and private institutions. However, it's remarkable that these networks are not linked in an integrated way around the country. Therefore, it can be seen as a vital matter for establishing one of the fundamental structures to strengthen and enhance the process of development. Thus, the process of connecting and integrating of information comes into effect to bridge this gap.
