The County Assembly of Nyamira ICT Strategy for 2017-2022 reflects a number of changes in our approach to ICT strategic planning to meet this need.  This strategy has to be focussed almost exclusively on the capabilities of the County Assembly of Nyamira, ICT  delivery Service and on technological directions. In taking a more holistic view, this Strategy starts to recognise the pervasive nature and benefits of ICT as an asset to County Assembly of Nyamira -M.C.As, public and staff - and a growing need to extend ICT investments to real assembly benefits. It also recognises the need for the entire County Assembly of Nyamira to be engaged with the ICT Strategy and for it to address its needs.

In drawing these requirements together, the ICT Strategy presents 5 overarching goals:-

  • Reduce costs and improve returns for ICT
  • Improve institution Satisfaction in the ICT Service delivery
  • Deliver the systems and technical architecture for the County Assembly of Nyamira
  • Protect and improve the use of information
  • Improve outcomes by harnessing ICT skills & innovation

It includes formulation, implementation and enforcement of the ICT strategy, policies, procedures and standards for using ICT within the County Assembly of Nyamira.

The purpose of ICT Governance as per the Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies (COBIT) Framework is to ensure that:
