The County government will use ICT as a pillar to propel economic development and enhance service delivery. To implement this program the county will set up an elaborate IT infrastructure and open up communities through building of e-villages. The county is seeking to increase the network connectivity by 50% within the first 3 years by facilitating increased uptake of fiber-optic in the main towns.
The Siaya E-government Initiative (SEI) will be coordinated from the Governor’s office and to increase efficiency within the government structures. Services earmarked for computerization will include business registration, payment of trade licenses and resource mapping. This central coordination will ensure that proper oversight is provided for the project while eliminating bottlenecks through inter-linking various ministries.
