Achieving and Enhancing E-government Integration: Lessons from the Land Data Hub Project of the Singapore Land Authority

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) was formed in 2001, as a statutory board under the Singapore Ministry of Law. Serving as the national land registration authority, one of the responsibilities of SLA is the management and maintenance of the national land information system, LandNet. Today, there are 15 government agencies participating in LandNet to share and reference land data in their daily operations. Some of these daily operations include land use planning and infrastructure development. These agencies include the Ministry of Law, the Housing & Development Board (HDB), the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the National Parks Board (NParks) and SLA. With LandNet, land data is now shared online in real-time. This facilitates efficient and quick decision-making and strategic planning.
