The National Information Technology Authority –Uganda (NITA-U) recently released a draft of the e-government Readiness Survey compiled by the consultant, Ernst & Young.
According to the survey 70% of businesses and citizens regard e-Banking as a high priority service, it also says, on average, 43 out of every 100 respondents who participated in the survey had an understanding of what e-Government meant, the survey also found out 63% of government institutions indicated that they provide services online, with 71% of them allowing end users to download and print online forms; 69% allowing submission of online feedback; 67% allowing the viewing, downloading and printing of tender.
James Saaka, NITA-U’s executive director said the report’s statistics were not good enough. “But the survey gives us hope and it also tells us that there is more work to do,” he said. Adding the most comforting factor to me is that 51% of the normal Ugandans have access to a mobile phone. “That gives me the energy to say we can use that as our delivery platform for services to the common man,” he added.
