Governments around the world are embarking on ambitious e-government programs, and the benefits of these are well known, enabling stakeholders to exchange information and the public to access services electronically such as tax, land management, business registration, e-health, e-procurement and electronic payment.
Bringing these programs and stakeholders together is a complex challenge that requires experience, local knowledge, and technological expertise. This informs the development of Geeks 24/7′s iGov. iGov is a set of tools, applications, processes and methodologies designed enable Government agencies in Nigeria achieve true e-Governance.
In today’s environment, we find that government agencies need to offer automated services due to rise in popularity of the internet, the public’s access to computers, personal hand-held mobile devices, and their demand for convenience. Electronic records, transactions, and messaging have replaced the physical records of the past. Automated e-Government offers not only enhanced convenience, but also more effective and efficient transactions. The cost and time savings realized by these solutions allow agencies to offer more services to its constituents and improve relationships with the public.
As e-Government evolves, it becomes substantially more important for solution providers to form teams for the development and implementation of portals and e-Government applications. The best e-Government portal RFP’s contain most, if not all, of the following elements:
- eGovernment application development, including development of intuitive front-end applications, integration of application front-ends with legacy systems in batch or real-time format, integration of e-Government applications with portals and common payment systems, etc.
- Strategic consulting, including customer focus group coordination, policy development, and consulting on governance, funding, and fee structures.
