National Data Transmission Backbone and e-Government Infrastructure Project PDF Print E-mail

 

One of Uganda's strategies is to utilise Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to create an efficient Government aimed at simplifying procedures, bringing transparency, accountability and making timely information available to all citizens.

To achieve the above, the Ministry of ICT, has identified two enabling priority actions; namely: the establishment of the E-Government Infrastructure (EGI) and the establishment of the National Data Transmission Backbone Infrastructure (NBI).

Subsequently, a Commercial Contract was signed between the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Uganda and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd of the Peoples’ Republic of China. The value of Contract Works for the overall proposed project including all contractors’ equipment, imported plant & materials, civil works and all services is USD 106,590,305 (One Hundred and Six Million, Five Hundred Ninety Thousands, Three Hundred and Five US Dollars Only).

The Project is planned to be implemented in three phases as shown below.
