National e-Government initiative presents a never-before opportunity for government bodies and agencies to embark on changing the way they work. They have been doing several things to align themselves with the National e-Government initiative. Whether big or small, these initiatives have brought home the point that the only way to move is to move forward and embrace e-Government whole-heartedly.
It has long been the case that most of these initiatives are hardware-centric and tended to flood the department with gleaming gizmos, which, after the initial flush of novelty value, tended to degenerate into museum pieces.
But that was in the past.....increasingly we are seeing a churn in the thinking, and there is now a perceptible urge to move beyond hardware and graduate to applications and software tools.
If strategy is the roadmap, Projects are the means to travel along the roadmap, and build visible and tangible services on the way.
From conceptualizing a simple portal, to providing citizen services, from consolidating data across the country, to implementing advanced business intelligence tools....there is a vast orchard of project ideas where ministries and agencies can go and cherry-pick the ones that are most appropriate for them, in size, in context, in their evolution and in their value-addition.
NISG is ideally positioned to provide key services in this space. Take a look at the following:
- Conceptualization and Ideation of e-Government initiatives
- Designing of appropriate Architectures in the four components of e-Government projects - Process, People, Technology and Resources
- Supporting the client-departments/ ministries in selecting suitable partners for implementing e-Government projects and programs
- Conducting evaluation and assessment of e-Government Projects
NISG offers its project consulting services spanning the full life cycle of a project spanning from ideating to rolling out of the project. In the process, NISG uses CADS (Conceptualize-Architect-Design-Support) methodology to complete the project in time with the desired level of quality.
Major activities undertaken during the process of project development are:
- Study of As-is Processes
- Defining To-be Processes
- Best Practices Survey from across the globe
- Stakeholder consultation
- Development of vision, mission and objectives
- Identification and prioritization of service
- Definition of service levels
- Building business models using PPP principles
- Defining Roles and Responsibilities of private partner and the department
- Develop a Proof of concept for the idea
- Evaluation and assessment of products
- Program Management
All these activities taken together in a step by step mode leads to development of a comprehensive document called "Request for Proposal", which forms the basis of selection of private partner.
