By Olushola Okunlade
The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) currently undertaking a comprehensive review of the Guidelines for Registration of ICT Service Providers/Contractors, designed to streamline the process for the delivery of IT services to Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
These guidelines, initially issued in 2018, have outlined the registration process for indigenous IT service providers that guarantee the delivery of high-quality IT projects to the federal government, uphold the highest standards of professionalism in IT services, and nourish the growth of local IT companies, all in adherence to the relevant Presidential Executive Orders.
NITDA disclosed this in a statement signed by Mrs Hadiza Umar Head, Corporate Affairs and External Relations.
Since the issuance of the guidelines, the Agency has identified the need to improve the efficiency in the process of registration, promote indigenous IT service provision, and ensure competent vendors are engaged for IT service delivery to Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of the Federal Government of Nigeria. This is in line with the present administration’s drive to ensure collective prosperity through efficiency and innovation.
The review, which will result in the amendment of the guidelines, will create opportunities for more digital services to be provided by Nigerian companies while strengthening the ease of doing business for IT service providers.
“NITDA desires to collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure that Nigerians benefit from the use of Information Technology to enhance and simplify their daily activities, especially service delivery by government and other institutions.
Given this, The Agency kindly invites the public to provide their comments, inputs, and feedback on or before Sunday 21st January 2024, via this link:” the statement reads.
