Completed e-Government Grant Project in Mozambique - Connectivity and Intranet in Maputo
The Development Gateway's e-Government Grants Program, in cooperation with the Government of Italy, provided a grant to Mozambique for a projet called Government Electronic Network(GovNet)-Pilot. This pilot, as part of Mozambique's national strategy, connected 15 national public administration entities in Maputo, aiming to improve public services and increase transparency in the public sector. Specifically, it provided a unified e-mail system among government employees, an intranet, a document management system, and cost-effective shared access to the Internet. The network is now being used by over 500 government employees via nearly 400 work stations. A centtralized government web portal has also been launched, intended to increase public access to information. The site will gradually add content from all government ministries.
