by | Jan 9, 2019

In a bid to streamline and fast-track the process of the IT Projects Clearing House mandate in Nigeria, the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has fully automated the process.

The agency in a press released highlighted the expected outcomes of the automation which include ensuring that government spending on IT can be tracked while also making way for synergy in national investments. With the automation, it is also expected that accurate statistics on government’s IT assets and investments would be available which will ensure informed decisions.

The automation of the process is designed to also curtail mismanagement of public funds would also be prevented.

NITDA created the IT Project Clearance portal for Government Ministers, Departments and Agencies, and other federal public institutions to submit their projects towards ensuring transparency, accountability, efficiency and effectiveness in obtaining clearance.

Furthermore, it would ensure that IT projects are properly conceptualized and executed in line with global best practices.
