The Government Service Bus (GSB) is one of the main pillars of the national infrastructure
The Government Service Bus (GSB) is one of the main pillars of the national infrastructure developed and managed by e-Government Program Yesser. GSB is an entity that comprises intermediary systems that contain integrated structure of hardware and software designed to facilitate exchange of shared government data among government agencies for safe and timely online delivery of services. Following the launching of GSB in its production stage, efforts continued in establishing of integration including construction, maintenance and management of GSB and interlinking of government agencies with GSB. There are two aspects of integration with GSB. One aspect is integration of a government agency with GSB as a provider of services and data for use by other agencies through GSB. Each government agency can integrate with GBS as a user of services and data provided through GSB.
Yesser has established GSB in order to facilitate integration and exchange of shared government data among various agencies interlinking with GSB. Considering dependency of government services that necessitate interlinking and integration of each agency with other agencies in order to deliver a particular service, GSB plays a pivotal role in facilitating business and technology integration among government agencies.
GSB is a manifestation of support provided by Yesser to government agencies to enable them deliver online services in an integrated, easy and simple manner. The concept of e-Government requires all government agencies to deliver their services and make their data accessible to supplement services offered by other government agencies. This is done through GSB.
To continue the success of the university in the activation the use of GSB particularly the system of "coordinating the admission among universities" King Khalid University contributed in the integration of information and data in the admission and registration works that were carried out this year. The services include 'Ministry of Education' the results of secondary school students service, 'National Center for Assessment in Higher Education' test results service, and the service of admission coordination and registration inquiry among governmental universities, on GSB. Recently, King Khalid University has been linked to 'Registration Inquiry' composite service on GSB as a provider. This service allows Registration inquiries by National ID in King Khalid University through composite service 'Registration Inquiry'. The response contains:
- Student Info.
- Admission Info (Regular, Suspended, Released, Graduated … ).
King Khalid University has also been linked to 'Graduate Record' composite service on GSB as a provider. This service allows Graduate Record inquiries by National ID in King Khalid University through composite service 'Graduate Record'. Graduate Record contains:

We hope that this release which reflects the keenness of the university represented by General Directorate of Information Technology in cooperation with the Deanship of Admission and Registration to activate the e-government services will enrich the services on the GSB.
