Ministry of the Interior and Safety and National Information Society Agency plan to place an order for the 5th and 6th projects within this year.

Meanwhile, Ministry of the Interior and Safety is promoting 'Cloud Computing Service Utilization Model' pilot project separately from the information system cloud conversion project for administrative and public institutions and has begun to select operators.

For the Jeju-do project, KT Cloud was a sole bidder, and waiting for qualification evaluation. Metanet Digital will cooperate as a cloud managed service provider (MSP). Metanet Digital is also participating in the Sejong City project in cooperation with Naver Cloud.

The Gyeongnam-do project closed the request for proposal (RFP) and is proceeding with the remaining procedures. Gwangju-si, Jeollanam-do and Jeollabuk-do also plan to select operators.

Prior to this, Ministry of the Interior and Safety selected 5 projects from 6 institutions through a public offering in June of this year. It took about 2 months to review the local government's business plan and start the bidding process.

The cloud computing service utilization model is a method in which the private sector provides a public dedicated cloud service and the public pays a usage fee.
