Clearance Process Saves N3b on Each IT Project, Says NITDA

The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has saved the Federal Government the sum of N3billion on a single cleared IT Project of an agency through its commitment as the government’s clearinghouse for all IT procurement and services in the public sector.

Amid growing concerns about the mismanagement of huge investment of public funds on IT Projects in MDAs, President Muhammadu Buhari has called for strict compliance to the IT project’s clearance directive by all government establishments to ensure that governments ICT procurements are transparent and align with government’s IT shared vision and policy.

NITDA’s spokesperson, Hadiza Umar said in a statement yesterday that the money saved had offered a glimmer of hope that the Federal Government would be getting a handle on wasteful and duplicative IT procurement and services in MDAs.

“As an unbiased watchdog of government, the Director General has ensured that there is transparency, accountability, efficiency and effectiveness in the process of obtaining clearance from NITDA targeted at extracting maximum value from MDAs’ investments on IT projects”, she said in the statement.
