National ICT Policy

28 Jun Posted by in Uncategorized | 6 comments

Listers,

Just wondering do we have a National ICT Policy either in the draft or completed form?

This is because, IMHO, for a country like Kenya to achieve economic growth based on application of ICT to supplement the traditional aspects of development, then a National ICT policy should come in handy to aid in pointing out the various points and roles that the various players should take.

How for instance, are we to achieve Vision 2030, if a national policy on ICT does not exist?

Regards,

Mburu

    I agree. We need the policy. I saw a copy of a policy at http://www.ist-africa.org/home/files/Kenya_ICTPolicy_2006.pdf. I am not sure if there is a more recent copy.

    Dear Mburu,

    Yes, Kenya has a National ICT policy. It’s actually online if you do a simple search. This came out first, if I am correct, in 2004 and then was revised in 2006.

    Under the leadership of the new Permanent Secretary for Information and Communications, the Cabinet adopted an ICT policy in January 2006.91 By the time of publication, however, the policy included significant revisions taken from public comments submitted by the private sector, academics, and civil society groups. According to a press release issued by the Communications Commission of Kenya, the ICT Policy –will replace the Telecommunications and Postal Sector Guidelines of December 2001 and set up an enabling framework for the . . . communications industry in Kenya.|| Kenya’s ICT Policy was published as official policy guidelines on March 31, 2006.

    On the same breadth there was the ICT strategy 2006 which was to run until 2010. There was an implementation plan with proposals of committees to do the implementation. Anyone aware how much was achieved and has there been any evaluation of the results to establish to what extent the objectives were met?

    Now that its period has expired, are there plan to come up with another one?

    yours, James
