The concept of good governance is getting increasing attention across the world. Globalization and the emergence of a new world order have made it imperative for governments to look at new ways of improving public service delivery. This has brought e-government to the forefront in all countries that have started attuning themselves to a knowledge-led world economy.
India's National e-Governance Plan aims to create a citizen-centric and business-centric environment for good governance. Considering the systems and methods already in place in developed countries, the accent is on creating appropriate governance and institutional mechanisms, establishing core infrastructure and policies, and implementing e-government projects at the central and state levels. Drawing on its inherent strengths as a public-private organization, NISG has been playing a leading role in this task.
As acclaimed thought leaders in e-government space, NISG provides consultancy solutions through a project life cycle to various ministries and departments of Central and State governments as well as public sector undertakings. Once engaged, NISG conceptualizes and designs public-private partnerships, builds technology architectures, initiates change management strategies, streamlines processes, and provides handholding support during the implementation of e-Governance initiatives.
NISG taps the expertise of external consultants to augment its resource base in implementing e-government projects and ensuring assured level of quality of the deliverables. Using a transparent selection process, NISG has so far empanelled over 60 consultancy firms, academic and research bodies, domain experts, subject matter experts etc. The services of these associates are utilized in a particular stage or all stages of a project, depending upon the requirement. Associates basically support NISG teams/representatives in strategic planning, project consultancy, project implementation, post-implementation support, human resource management, process re-engineering, and research & analysis.
Multilateral organizations like United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), World Bank, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, etc. that support various countries in launching nationwide initiatives are welcome to associate with NISG and help implement the Government of India's e-government initiatives. Such organizations can also engage NISG to meet their own requirements in certain technical and managerial areas.
In short, associating with NISG translates to having a stake in changing the face of governance in India.
