ICT policy for Government
The ICT policy for Government acts as a guide for Government in using ICTs to achieve overall development within agencies and in the delivery of services. It will assist in benchmarking each organization’s activities against the Policy, which will enable agencies to identify the areas which need attention and where rectification needs to be carried out. It will also ensure consistency in ICT activities. The Policy conveys the minimum requirements expected to which, Government organizations can add to and create their own organizational ICT policies, within this Policy framework. Thus, the Policy will be a first step towards implementing a standards-based approach in implementing e-Government services.
