NIISP Call for Applications (4th Call)
The Ministry of ICT and National Guidance has allocated resources to support ICT Innovators and application developers under the National ICT Initiatives Support Programme (NIISP) whose overall goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem for ICT Innovations in Uganda. The Ministry is
pleased to invite applicants for the fourth call under the following key sectors:
The Government of Uganda is pursuing the Parish Based Development Model with a view of catalysing development at the lower administrative units (Parish). The model’s success will be highly dependent on the availability of data for decision making. Based on this there is a need to support the development of an integrated system that will be used for the implementation of the Programme.
Public Sector Management
Public Sector Management is a key function for efficient and effective management of public service delivery. To improve efficiency, there is a need to automate the Management of Government facilities used for Meetings, Workshops and Seminars by both the Public and Government. As a result, Government would like to support the development of a system to automate scheduling, venues and timetabling of meetings held in Government facilities. The system will also support the Business Processes of Government facilities such as the Civil Service College and the National ICT Innovation Hub.
ICT users have over the years been subjected to counterfeit equipment by manufacturers and vendors. Unfortunately, there is no readily available mechanism to ascertain the authenticity and originality of the ICT Products that the public uses. To address this, the Ministry would like to support the development of systems that support the vendor/consumer ability to identify ICT counterfeits.
The deadline for applications is 15th May 2021.
