Execute and manage the state’s portal, state service delivery gateway and e-forms
Accenture has been awarded a 42-month information technology (IT) contract from the government of Nagaland, India to implement the state’s public service portal.
Financial details of the transaction were not specified.
Under the agreement, Accenture will leverage its experience in large-scale implementation efforts to execute and manage the state’s portal, state service delivery gateway and e-forms for facilitating the delivery of services offered by multiple government departments.
Accenture will provide technology which will enable access to information, alleviate administrative burdens by reducing the number of visits to government offices and departments, and encourage e-interaction.
The IT contract will enhance the government’s technological agenda, build synergies with the National Portal of India (NPI) and provide access to data and information.
Accenture said that the portal will be a ‘one-stop shop’ where citizen’s can perform transactions online from placing requests for birth and domicile certificates to getting information on the state or upcoming events with increased speed and efficiency, anytime of day or night.
Accenture management consulting practice in the health & public service operating group for the Asia Pacific region head Krishna Giri said the implementation of the Nagaland state portal will make most government services readily accessible to citizens and it will ensure the transparency and reliability of information.
"The Government will be better positioned not only to share important information and social programs with citizens in even the most remote locations, but also better able to anticipate and meet future governance requirements while reducing administrative costs," Giri said.
