ENHANCING CONNECTIVITY ACROSS ALL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF E-SERVICE DELIVERY
County ICT and e-Government sub-sector is currently digitizing operations across all the county departments. Among these systems and programs currently in place are: Health Management information system(HMIS), Revenue collection system, Human resource management system, Fleet Management system, County data & Call Centre (1548) and ICT literacy skills training in Vocational Training Centres. Soon, it will be unleashing Job Application Portal and Agricultural DigiFarm program and ICT incubation Hubs among others.
For the success of this journey towards digitization, there is need for good internet connectivity countywide. The Department is therefore partnering with National Government’s ministry of ICT in the County Connectivity Project (CCP) through its National Optic Fiber Backbone (NOFBI).
Today a team from ICT Authority (ICTA) for third phase of this project that will enhance internet and phone connectivity across all county departments at the headquarters, County Assembly offices and even to the sub-counties. This Project also serves the national government Departments such the Law court, Prison, Land registry and Public Works.
The Chief Office in charge ICT and e-Government, Jonathan Misoi, speaking during an entry meeting, said that this connectivity Projects will be extended to Sub-Counties and later to ward level so to ensure these programs and services get closer to the people.
