KEY BUSINESS SYSTEMS
The ICT plan is driven by the plan of the Authority which in turn is driven by the authority's core mandate objectives. The core mandate objectives are further supported by a range of administrative processes.
CORE FUNCTION BUSINESS SYSTEMS
The Authority will automate core function systems in order to achieve the core mandate objectives. This will involve deployment of specialized ICT systems which in most cases would be deployed using internet applications and if on a non-internet platform would require collaboration with internet for purposes of posting updates. A good example of a core mandate system that will be deployed in the authority is e-procurement. Once this is implemented and linked to the procurement entities, it will be a key tool for the Compliance function to use in monitoring and evaluation of the Procurement Entities. The core function business systems to be automated are:-
* Policy and Research
* Capacity Building
* Appeals Review Board
